How many of us have (or are currently) giving our kids a multivitamin to supplement their diets? And how many of us just grab whatever’s on sale at our local drugstore? You know, the ones that look more like sugar-coated candy than something nutritious…
We’ve all done it, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with buying the kid's vitamins off the store shelf, but when you know better, you do better. This is why I’m incredibly excited to share with you that one of my favorite children’s nutrition brands, YUMI, has announced the launch of their brand new multivitamin Biteamin line.
These organic, whole food vitamins are made for the whole family, so everyone ages 2+ can enjoy the benefits of bite-sized science that are engineered to fill in nutritional gaps for picky eaters and to help cultivate overall wellness.
Speaking of wellness, kids nutrition has been top of mind recently. In fact, our YUMI vs Little Spoon comparison has been one of our most popular blog posts for parents looking to feed their kids organic whole baby and toddler food.
Let’s take a look at Yumi Biteamins and let you decide if these are worthy of adding to your family’s wellness routine!

9.5 / 10
What Are Biteamins by YUMI?
Biteamins are YUMI’s proprietary vitamin formula that’s scientifically designed to address the most common nutritional deficiencies in children ages 2+. Made from 15 different organic fruits and veggies and zero artificial ingredients, Yumi’s Biteamins are a food-first approach to nutritional supplementation. Which makes a lot of sense considering Yumi is one of the most well-known and respected organic, freshly prepared meal services for babies and toddlers.
Biteamin Ingredients: What’s Inside?
Because Yumi believes in using whole food ingredients, you can expect to find a healthy dose of organic fruits and vegetables in every bite-sized vitamin. The complete ingredient list includes the following:
Organic Spinach, Organic Broccoli, Organic Sweet Potato, Organic Sunflower Seed, Organic Shiitake Mushroom, Organic Maitake Mushroom, Organic Orange, Organic Apple, Organic Strawberry, Organic Pumpkin, Organic Kale, Chlorella, Organic Cranberry, Organic Fruit (Organic Apple [Juice Concentrate & Puree Concentrate], Organic Raspberry Powder, Organic Pomegranate Juice Concentrate, Organic Black Currant Powder), Pectin (from Apples and Oranges), Organic Lemon Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavor, Organic Black Carrot Juice Concentrate. Processing aid: Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Carnauba Wax, Cellulose (for coating)
What’s NOT Inside Yumi’s Biteamins
- Artificial Colors
- Artificial Flavors
- Artificial Sweeteners
All of which are, unfortunately, found within the majority of big box vitamins that line the store shelves.
Why Choose Yumi Multivitamin Biteamins?
There are a ton of reasons to choose Yumi Biteamins. Whether you’re currently supplementing your children’s diet or your own with a multivitamin or not, here are a few reasons why choosing Yumi’s vitamins is an incredible choice:
Built For Immunity
I don’t know about your kids, but mine are always coming down with the latest bug or virus that’s going around school. And while that’s a normal (and healthy) part of development, it can feel frustrating when you feel like you’re in a constant cycle of sickness. Yumi Biteamins are loaded with Vitamin D and C and Zinc for optimal immune health.
Fosters Brain Development
There have been many recent studies showing a link between iron and brain development in children. Iron deficiency is one of the most common problems among children. Biteamins are rich in iron to support learning and memory development from an early age.
Supports Nervous System Function
The nervous system is the center of all mental activities including thought, learning, and memory. B12 has been linked to improved nervous system functioning and immunity, which is why YUMI included it inside their scientifically-backed gummy vitamins.
Available for the Whole Family!
Toddlers, kids, and adults all have different nutritional needs, which is why Yumi created three different Biteamin formulas to address them all. Now, you can get vitamins for the whole family all in one place and feel great about your decision knowing that you’re supplementing your diet and your children’s diet with whole, natural vitamins and nutrients that are engineered to boost your wellness.
Multivitamins For The Whole Family
It’s not common to see a wellness or nutrition brand cater to everyone in the family, so it’s exciting to see Yumi do so with their multivitamins. Nutrition is essential for everyone in the family, not just kiddos! I think this is Yumi’s subtle way of telling us parents to make sure we’re taking care of our bodies and nutritional needs as we do the same for our children.
Let’s take a closer look at each of the three different Yumi Multivitamin options and see who they’re best for next.
Toddler Multivitamin Biteamin
The toddler Biteamins are made specifically for children between the ages of 2-4. Each bottle contains a 30-day supply and the daily serving is 5 gummies. Yes, this seems like a lot when compared to other kid’s vitamin brands, but the ingredients are all healthy and your child will love getting to eat them!
Kids Multivitamin Biteamin
Kids Biteamins are made for children aged 4+. Every bottle has a 30-day supply inside and the recommended dosage is 4 gummies per day.
Adult Multivitamin Biteamin
Kids aren’t the only ones that need multivitamins! Adults of all ages can enjoy the taste and nutritional benefit of Yumi’s vitamins by consuming the recommended dose of 4 per day. Again, each bottle contains a 30-day supply.
How Do They Taste?
If you skipped to this section of my Yumi Multivitamins review to see how they taste first, I don’t blame you! My kids are picky, too, and the thought of purchasing high-quality vitamins that they won’t actually eat isn’t all that appealing.
However, I’m happy to report that Biteamins are delicious! My whole family has tried these (me, my husband, and my two kids ages 2 and 5), and we all agree that they taste great! My kids much prefer a gummy vitamin to a chewable, and let’s be honest, my husband and I do, too. It’s so much more fun to take your vitamins when they taste and feel like a treat!
Overall, the taste is naturally sweet, giving a dark cherry taste most notably. Of course, they still have the taste of a vitamin but it’s subtle and not overpowering or icky at all.
How Much Do Yumi’s Vitamins Cost?
Yumi priced their multivitamin Biteamins very competitively. When compared to other organic, natural kid’s vitamins like Hiya and First Day, Yumi comes out right around the same price.
- Toddler Multivitamin Biteamin cost: $30 one-time purchase, $27 with Yumi subscription (save 10%)
- Kids Multivitamin Biteamin cost: $34 on-time purchase, $30 with Yumi subscription (save 10%)
- Adult Organic Multivitamin cost: $34 on-time purchase, $30 with Yumi subscription (save 10%)
Don’t forget that Yumi also has a full line of organic, freshly-prepared baby and toddler foods (see YUMI baby food review) as well as their brand new Fruit Leathers to try out, too! My kids and I love fruit leathers, and with a full serving of fruits and vegetables in each one and no extra junk, it’s a snack that I feel great about giving them!
Should Your Family Try Yumi Biteamin Multivitamins?
After learning about Yumi’s brand new multivitamin line and trying them for myself, I am convinced of the quality and efficacy of these vitamins. I am very impressed with the ingredients and the obvious attention to detail and science that went into the creation of these vitamins. Yumi has been around for a couple of years now and has seen tremendous success and growth in the kid’s nutrition space. The fact that they have kept their product line small and targeted speaks volumes to the quality of the product they put out.
Aside from the fact that these are some of the healthiest, nutritionally-dense vitamins for kids and adults on the market, they actually taste great and are a product that everyone in my family can enjoy. Try Yumi’s new vitamins today and set your family up for a fresh, new season of health and wellness!
