Has anyone found one that is either tasty enough to be eaten alone or crushable?? DS sort of eats the animal parade multis but more sucks on them and then discards so doubt he's even getting anything.

we have to avoid dairy, eggs, corn, peanuts.
and I know lots have no iron (b/c of GI upset?) but he was anemic in the past so preferable we give him one with iron.

thanks!!

Maybe he'd do better with a liquid that you can give him with an oral syringe?

oh I should mention he refuses the dropper/syringe. We used to force him when he needed iron drops but we can't force anymore. it's too stressful for him & us!

I have yet to find ANY multi-vitamin that doesn't have some sort of corn derivative in it. And I've called a lot of companies...

I've successfully crushed Animal Parade. Just throw it in a freezer baggie and beat it with something (rolling pin, side of meat hammer, own forehead...) But do only small batches, as it draws moisture and gets sticky once it's out of the bottle.

Vita-kids by Douglas Labs is corn and everything-free, but doesn't have added iron. The only bad thing about it (for some people) is the citrus in it. My allergic dd has been taking it for a while.
