I hate to write a negative review for such a healthy product but my kids hated these gels. When you chew them the liquid squirts out and the capsule feels like plastic in your mouth (I tried them too). It's hard to chew and swallow. I told them they could spit it out but after 2-3 days they wouldn't take them anymore. Today I emptied 2 of them into my son's oatmeal but he tasted the strawberry flavor right away and refused to eat that too. I do have to admit my kids are picky eaters. Next I will try gummies. Very frustrating!
