I am throwing out those nasty Flintstone's vitamins that have red-dye in them.

What children's vitamin can I replace them with for a 3 year old that doesn't contain red-dye?

He won't eat the gummy vitamins like Little Critters...just spits them out. I think it's the texture.

I know Trader Joe's carries a children's chewable and I hightly doubt that there is any artificial coloring in them Good luck!

We're using Nature's Plus Animal Parade. I buy them at Wild Oats. Ds loves them. They are naturally colored.

so many roads to ease my soul...

We use Nature's Plus Animal Parade too. Kids love 'em. We buy them at our local natural foods co-op.

We also use Nature's Plus Animal Parade. My kids love the watermelon flavor. They wouldn't eat them at first though, so we came up with a game. I pick one out and then make a sound or funny gesture (or both) for the animal. I roar for the lion, make a funky trumpeting sound for the elephant (while using my arm as a trunk), etc. They love it and will now ask me for the vitamin. (They actually learned the word vitamin even though I usually call it their "vitameatavegamin." They look at me a little weird when I say that - someday I'm going to find that 'I Love Lucy' episode and tape it!)

Rainbow light has Nutri-Stars.

I like them as they are loaded with all sorts of nutrients.

And I dont think they have any junk in them.
