Chewable Vitamins For Children
0

17 posts in this topic

Does anyone know which vitamins are gluten-free for children? I called the company of the Disney Princess chewables, and they said it was gluten-free. I bought it, got home, and reread the label and saw wheat starch right on the label. Now I'm paranoid. What do you give your children? Thanks! I know Poli-Vi-Sol is gluten free, but my daughter is ready to move on to chewables!

The last bottle of Scooby Doo vitamins we bought was gluten free, but I don't know if they are now or not, we have been getting some liquid vitamins from the health food store for the whole family, you mix like an ounce with juice in the morning, it seems to make us feel better than the chewables and the pills, the lady said something about more of the vitamins getting in to our system or something.

Scooby Doo

I didn't read the ingredients, but they are on that page.

We use Hero Nutritionals Yummi Bears and we've also used Lil' Critters Gummy Bears. They both say gluten-free on the bottle. The Yummi Bears are from the health food store and the Lil' Critters can be bought at Walmart etc. :)

I don't know if Hy-Vee is just local to around here, but they are a larger grocery chain and they have lots of gluten-free products as well as knowledgable dieticians. We use the Hy-Vee brand children's chewables from there.

Hope you find some.

I bought the Lil Critters Gummy Bear Vitamins at Wal Mart today. I had been getting my daughter a Dollar Tree brand that said gluten free, but all my local Dollar Tree's stopped carrying the childrens chewables :angry: ... so I had to get her something else. After reading about the Lil Critters in this thread, I decided to give those a try. I just gave her two and she loved them! YAY!

My daughter's pedi GI doc just gave us samples of this vitamin: FREEDA Children's Chewable VITALETS-contains no gluten, lactose, artificial color, artificial flavor, animal derivatives, sugar, starch, gelatin or yeast.

My opinion;they're a little on the big side-about the size of a nickel, but my kids have been taking them just fine and it's something that I feel good giving them, knowing it has no sugar or color additives, you know?

Price: $8.76/100

We have only tried the raspberry flavor.

Here's a direct link:

Good luck!

My 4 yo daughter loved her Flintstone's chewables, which of course she can't have anymore. We tried Centrum Complete, but she hated them. We were at Target the other day, and their version of the Lil Critters says right on the label that there's no gluten, so we got those and she loves them. Success!

With all these suggestions, how many of them are complete? When you look at lot of the"fun" vitimans they seem lacking in content.

We had tried several vitamins also with no success. After reading how all of your children love the Lil' Critters Bears, I went after some. Now my 6 year old walks in the door asking for her vitamin after school each day! THANK YOU!!!

They just changed Centrum for children and it is not gluten-free anymore. We haven't found another one that is gluten-free and appealing to our 4 year old's taste.... Tania

    • these sound like celiac reactions  yes   ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction   always and find your self a great natural practitioner and   rebuild  your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet  Good Luck
    • Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me.  I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific.  I wondered if anyone else had this problem.  I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!?  I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case!  Thankyoy  steph 
    • I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this.  I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist.  Today marks day 23 of diarrhea.  Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse.  I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little.  If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C.  The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly. 
    • Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
    • Haha todays cheat day and I cant decide if i want pizza or mac and cheese lmao oh the struggle.
