My son is also almost 12. He takes adult multivitamins and has for about 3 years. He is big for his age and the doctor told me back then to give him adult doses in everything! I only give him vitamins when he has had a cold or during times when I know he isn't eating real well. If your son eats as healthy as mine, he probably doesn't need vitamins. My son's Dr. said not to use them daily since it would mostly just be a waste of money since my son eats well. I'd make an appointment with a docotr if there is a reason that you feel vitamins are necessary- otherwise most fruits and vegetables are in season and in abundant supply! If your child dosn't "like" fruits and vegetables, don't buy junk food, but teach them to eat them by only having healthy around.
