Thank you for being such a brave soul and trying this out!
I wonder if adding some to some apple sauce might be the ticket? No chewing involved and the applesauce could hide the taste too.
If you don't want to try that, I don't blame you! Vitamin tablets are nasty tasting. I bit into one once, and boy! was I shocked at how bad it tasted!
The reason I thought of applesauce is because that is what is done with medication, er ah... poison... for the very ill.
Best Wishes for your health!
