We use Schiff's liquid multivitamin. It doesn't have any unnatural crap in it, and it's the only vitamin for this age range that has 100% of the RDA for everything.
For my older ds, we did it because he has eczema, and getting enough zinc is important for eczema. Also, he's vegetarian, and we wanted to make sure he was getting enough iron (particularly because we lived in an old house with lead paint... getting enough iron helps your kid absorb less lead). Schiff's is definitely the only one I saw that had enough zinc and iron.
For my younger ds... he was FTT, and he still doesn't eat enough. Again, there's concern with him about zinc and iron, so we're going with the Schiff's again.
It has a natural peach flavor, and it's pretty palatable.
