ITV News readers have been sharing their views on the chief medical officer's suggestion of providing free vitamins for all children under the age of five.
[It would be a] waste of money because those parents who don't buy vitamins now probably still wouldn't give them to their children even if they were free. They need educating on a proper diet and getting kids off computer games and outside to play.
I think it is a good idea for those who aren't inclined, or don't have the money to give their children a proper balanced diet. The other parents who have a choice and are better informed don't have to take it up. I think this is a necessary quick fix.
Why not [extend the scheme to] all children under 16?
