Why did you choose to do gummies instead of pills?
Many people prefer gummy vitamins to pills because they taste like a sweet treat and are easy to eat. This makes them a great option for both kids and people who have difficulty swallowing pills. Plus, since taking gummies is a more pleasant experience, it makes it more likely that people will take them on a consistent basis – which is vital for attaining the full health benefits.

Are Hello Bello gummies bad for people’s teeth?
We recommend people brush their teeth after consuming our gummies, just like you should for any other food. Some healthy routine ideas include having them with breakfast and brushing your teeth after or taking them before brushing your teeth at the end of the day. If you have any specific concerns, we recommend consulting with your dentist.
Are your gummies vegan?
All of our gummies are vegan except the Omega-3 which contains fish oil and gelatin; the Prenatal +DHA which contains fish oil, gelatin, and Vitamin D (cholecalciferol) derived from lanolin; and the Organic Prenatal which contains Vitamin D (cholecalciferol) derived from lanolin.
Do your gummies contain any common allergens?
Our gummies are made without common allergens (wheat, gluten, eggs, peanuts). If you’re allergic or sensitive to an ingredient not listed here, please contact our customer care team for help.
Do you test to ensure the nutrient levels in the gummies match what’s on the label?
Yes, we do!
Do you test your gummies for heavy metals?
Yes, we do! We test for lead, arsenic, cadmium, total mercury and methylmercury.
Why isn’t there iron in the prenatals?
Iron has a strong metallic taste that’s difficult to mask in a gummy (especially using natural flavors like we do), so it’s better to take as a separate pill.
Is the vitamin D vegan?
We use two kinds of vitamin D, depending on the product: one is vegan, the other is not. Ergocalciferol is sourced from fungi (vegan) and cholecalciferol is sourced from lanolin (not vegan). Refer to each product’s supplement facts panel to find which one uses which.
Are your bottles recyclable?
Yes! The bottles are PET #1 (as marked on the bottom) and the caps are PP #5 (pop out the liner to see the code) and both are widely recycled. But please check with your local recycling facility to make sure they take them.
Where should I store the gummies?
Keep your gummies in a dry area away from direct sunlight. The ideal temperature for storing is between 40-75℉.
Is there an expiration date for your gummies?
Yes. You’ll find it printed on the bottom of the bottle along with the lot code.
My gummies have changed color. Are they still okay to take?
Because we use natural colors, they can change over time, but it does not alter the potency of the product. If you have any safety concerns, please contact our customer care team for help.
The plastic bottle is looking kind of cloudy in color. Are the gummies still safe to take?
Clouding of the plastic is normal over time and should not affect the gummies. Check the bottom of the bottle for the expiration date and contact our customer care team with any concerns.
What happens if a child consumes more than the recommended serving size?
If you think your child took too many vitamins, call the National Capital Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222 or your medical health care provider right away. Please have the product bottle in order to provide the ingredients and amount of each ingredient. They will also ask how many pieces you think your child consumed. Gummies are easily mistaken as candy by kids, so please keep them out of reach of children.
Can my child under 2 take the kid’s multi?
Due to choking hazards, we don’t recommend giving our gummies to children under age 2.
