Thanks so much! I'd be curious to hear what your vitamin regimen is too as there seems to be so much conflicting info out there on what to take, if anything. I've read about needing way more Vit D than currently recommend (well, true for lots of the vitamins), fish oil, probiotics, etc. And all of this in regard to kids, not adults.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

Haven't found a gummy that is more of a true 'multivitamin'
And that's the trouble I ran into using the "natural" YummiBears (no iron) and why I switched to Flintstones. I'm guessing the Target brand is just their version of Flintstones. I guess I'll just deal with the dyes for now until I can find something better.

I am really needing help with this. I just found out that the Flinstones Complete vitamins are not necessarily gluten-free. They have a disclaimer on their website that they cannot guarantee their suppliers are providing gluten-free raw materials. We have been using these (without symptoms) for about a year. Unfortunately I need something with iron. I heard Wegman's sells them but we do not live remotely close to a Wegman's. Anyone know a good gluten-free multi-vitamin with iron?

Just a Forum rule clarification here - technically " bumps" are not allowed. But that is for your own posts as you can't force people to reply. This is just a new poster re- starting a conversation instead of starting a new one. That is OK.
To answer the poster:
Just because there is a CYA statement, that doesn't mean there is any gluten in the vitamins that you have been using successfully so far.

Nature made has a lot of gluten-free vitamins. Check the vitamin amounts. I have found that some children's and adult vitamins aren't very different in amounts of each " vitamin".
Walgreens has a lot of gluten-free store brand products, you could check them. target has started labeling the store brand with the arrow gluten-free sometimes.

I would check on Vitacost.com. My daughter had a specific need - she needs 1000 mg of calcium per day but she also needs a multivitamin. All of the chewable calcium supplements on store shelves contain a lot of Vit D, and between that and the D in the multi-vitamin she was getting too much. I went to the Vitacost website and was able to search by criteria and found what we were looking for. And it is the Animal Parade brand mentioned above.

I also give probiotics daily.

We also take Vitamin Parade. They have a chewable calcium tablet and Vitamin C too. My daughter does not love the taste of these, but I feel they are the best because they are food based sources (nothing synthetic).
My daughter (she's almost 12) also takes probiotics. And, we all take a fish oil that tastes decent. The fish oil comes in several flavors called "Omega Swirl." It's from Barlean's Organic Oils which I recently received an email saying all their products are gluten-free. We also add the Barlean's Flax oil to our daily green smoothies! :-)
Me: various symptoms such as eczema throughout my life; HLA-DQ2 gene
Daughter: positive blood test and HLA-DQ2 gene; no biopsy. Gaining weight and grew taller since gluten-free; had been same weight for 2 years.
gluten-free since May 1
