gluten-free/df Vitamins For Kids?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if I could get some gluten-free/DF vitamin suggestions. My four year old willingly takes the Animal Parade chewables, but my 18 month old just kinda looks at me like I have three heads when I try to hand him one. I know vitamins are important for celiac/gluten intolerant kiddos, particularly calcium & vitamin D. TIA!

We use Schiff children's chewables. They say they contain fish and soy. There's no gluten or dairy.

I believe that Animal Parade also makes a liquid multi-vitamin. And Nordic Naturals makes a gummy vitamin by the name of Nordic Berries. There are also gummy calcium supplements...I think they're called Yummi Bears?

We use Trader Joe's Gummi Vites for Kids. The label says no wheat, gluten, milk, eggs, tree nuts, soy, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

My son likes the taste.

Thanks everyone!

I ended up finding a liquid vitamin at Wild Oats - I'll have to post the name later since it escapes me at the moment. It's gluten, dairy, soy, artificial anything free. Aiden can be a little tough to please with flavors/textures because he has reflux so he's gotten pretty picky. He seems to be doing ok with the liquid ones so far.
