Does anyone know of a vitamin I can buy for my 4 y/o son? He has been taking My First vitamins (Flintstones), but I called today to find out if they are gluten-free, and they could not verify. Thank you.

My son takes Centrum or Jaimeson multivitamins. In Canada they are gluten-free.

Hi,

I'm 13 yrs. old w/Celiac. I used to take flinstones, too. My mother found another vitamin, "Animal Parade". It doesn't say gluten-free (gluten free) on the container, but when she called the company, they said they were gluten free. They're chewable, which is nice. Hope this has helped. Vitamins are very important for Celiacs since we don't absorb all our nutrients, anyway. Good luck.

Colter is right, the Twin Labs Animal Parade Cherry flavored are gluten-free, as are Twin Labs Animal Friends Multi-vitamin, also Sesame Street Complete and Bugs Bunny Chewables are also supposed to be gluten-free.

God bless,

Mariann

I was so happy to find out that my children's favorite brand of vitamins is in fact gluten free and dairy free! They are the L'il Critters Gummy Vites. They look like gummy bears, but are a multi-vitamin with minerals. I can get them at costco for around $10 for 200 vitamins. My kids love em, and are fine just eating 1-2 a day (recommended dose is up to 2 a day). You have to be careful though if your child knows how to open up safety caps, they might eat too many!

I stopped getting them, since the old bottle didn't say on the label and they label only had the address, not a phone # or e-mail. But the new bottle lists on the package that they do not contain: gluten, dairy, artificail colors, flavors or preservatives. Yeah!!

God bless,

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
