I mean, the powder could be mixed into a smoothie or something.

I personally didn't choose something like Rainbow light because it has Vit. A palmitate in it. From what I've researched, 100% Vit. A from beta-carotene is better. Apparently too much Vit. A palmitate causes defects. All of my milks and cereals seem to have 10% palmitate in them already, so I don't need more of that. Also, no Selenium? I realize overdosing on Selenium isn't good either but 50 to 80mg is good as an anti-cancer measure.
These are what I take too. I also take garden of life calcium, vitamin d and iron supplements.

I've been taking New Chapter perfect prenatal. You have to take 3 but they don't taste or smell awful.
