Products I Like and Use
1. Christine’s Favorite Vegan Multivitamin: Renzo’s Picky Eater Kids Multivitamin (affiliate link*)
Why I love it:
– Renzo’s states they use third party testing (something that not all supplements companies do).
-I’ve used it both for myself and my daughter (always talk to your doctor about appropriate supplementation for your unique situations).
-They contain alot of the nutrients that may be more difficult to obtain on a vegan diet, like iodine.
-In my humble opinion (and daughters!), they taste pretty good!

2. Christine’s Favorite Vegan Prenatal: Mama Bird AM/PM Prenatal Multi+ from Best Nest Wellness (affiliate link* in affiliation with Best nest Wellness)
Why I love it:
-In my search for a vegan prenatal, I found that many vegan prenatal either: A. did not contain a significant amount of choline or B. were not always transparent about testing. Mama Bird AM/PM has over half choline needs for pregnancy (which I found incredibly useful during that first trimester when I wasn’t eating much).
-Their customer service team was very supportive in answering my questions (believe you me, I e-mailed companies during my search for vegan prenatals)!
–Best Nest Wellness uses third party testing, tests for heavy metals, and disintegration.
You can even see their Certificate of Analysis for their vitamins here.
As always, talk to your doctor about this prenatal if you are pregnant or planning a future pregnancy’s.
