I Found A gluten-free Vitamin ! And A New Snack Idea...

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm not sure if it's been mentioned on here but my DH just called the company that makes Member's Mark gummy vitamins (buy them at Sams Club) and they said they do NOT use any gluten in their vitamins. The ingredients sounded fine to me but of course we wanted to verify. :P

Kara has been taking the hard gluten-free vitamins that you get at Walgreens.. called The Land Before Time. She HATES those and I can't wait to tell her that she can start taking the gummy ones again.

Just thought I'd share that so if you have a Sam's Club you can check it out.

BTW....Kara's TTG results came back and they were 1.6 (anything below 4 is normal) so she is getting little to no gluten in her diet. We are so happy b/c her number was like 83 back in October.

I feel like she's eating the same thing over and over but she's gained 5...almost 6 pounds. I'm still so frustrated about not going out to eat but she doesn't know that. :unsure:

For a snack idea...

....Kara enjoys dipping apple slices in carmel dip..so I emailed the company that makes it...they are called T. Marzetti and they emailed me 15 pages of gluten-free products. Most are salad dressings..tons of them and I'm glad b/c Kara hates the Annie's (as do I) and this gives her lots of options. However, she is choosing to eat her salads plain! YUCK!! I told her she was born to be a celiac!LOL But anyway, they also have a strawberry cream cheese fruit dip that she enjoys. Ya'll may already know this but I thought I'd take a chance and share anyway. Just google T. Marzetti and you'll see some gluten-free things on their website.

Oh...Mahatma Yellow Rice is also gluten-free. Yummy

I love salad without dressing! I have a salad that way every day. The secret is that you can't just do a pile of lettuce - you've got to have a bunch of goodies on there.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

Peanut-Free since July 2006.

That's the only way I can eat my salad too. I might put a little salsa or pico de gallo on it, but to me, dressing just ruins it.

Kara says the same thing. As long as she has ham, cheese and pepperoni on it..she's good to go! :)

Kara's Mom, do the vitamins have iron? My son really doesn't like meat, so I tried to find a vitamin with iron. We have the Vitalets by Freeda, but he doesn't really care for them (but he likes them better than meat, so he eats them! :lol: ).

Hey,

I'm sorry to say that they do NOT have iron. :( But the Land Before Time vitamin (they are Walgreens brand) DO have iron in them. And I bet they're cheaper than the Freeda kind. But if you do go to Walgreens..make sure you look at the box because one DOES contain gluten and the other dosen't. These say GLUTEN FREE on the box. And now that I see these have iron and the others don't...I may not let her switch. She'll LOVE you for bringing that to my attention! :P
