Has anyone found a gluten-free multivitamin for kids?

The company, "Source of Life" makes chewable, animal-shaped vitamins that are gluten-free. The "Animal Parade" kind is gluten-free..

Lil Critters Vita Worms are gluten-free, it even says so on the bottle. They taste like gummi worms, so they are easy to get my dd to take them! Centrum vitamins are gluten-free too, the Rugrat ones is what we have used before.

Does anyone know of gluten-free vitamins for kids that do not contain artificial sweeteners? I will even take real sugar over artificial sweeteners.

A friend of mine is involved with a company called juiceplus. They are actually a "whole food source" rather than a manufactured vitamin. I just received the packet in the mail and will be ordering shortly.

They carry capsules for adults, chewables for kids and even a gummi bear, with NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS! If you would like more info, check out www.juiceplus.com and take the tour!

I can also direct anybody who's interested to my friend, david's direct e-mail or can forward info he has already sent me about the products.

You order a 4 month supply, but can pay in monthly installments. I think the kids' varieties are about $22 / month. They also have an offer where each paying adult can get a free supply for the kids, but I'm not sure if this is still available. I can check.

My SIL uses Melaluca (sp) vitamins. They say gluten free and she doesn't use any artificial sweeteners, so I am positive they don't include it either. Let me know if you need me to get more info from her. I also just looked at the Vita worms we are using, and it looks like they don't have any artificial sweeteners either. Plenty of real sugar though! I got them at Wal mart, but I have gotten the bears before by them at Costco.

We use the 365 Brand which is manufactured for Whole Foods Market. It's a chain of health food stores - I think mostly in the South. They don't have any artificial flavors or colors either. Both my kids love them.

The ingredients list of Juice Plus lists barley bran and oat bran; I cancelled my order when it became apparent our household was going gluten-free.
