Does anyone have any suggetions on safe vitamins? I did a search and found some people saying that Flinstones were ok but I called them this mourning after purchasing some and a rep. from Bayer Corp stated that while the product did not intentionally contain any peanut ingrediants it was made in a facility that processed peanut containing items.... So now I have decided not to try these. Just wanted to see if anyone had found any safe options. Thanks

We have used Poly-Vi-Sol (drops) and Li'l Critter Gummy Vites.
If you do a search on vitamins, I think there is a recent thread on this topic.

rhino gummy vitamins are definitely made in a nut-free facility. (i confirmed this again earlier this week when i bought new vitamins for my dd).

Yes- out here, too.
Oddly enough, though, the [i]gummy[/i] Flintstones were okay... at least for pn, tn, and egg. Not dairy, fish, or soy, as I recall.
Several people here use the gumball vitamins-- I forget the brand.

Hi, I called Jamieson's this week about the Aurthur and Calliou chewable mulitvitamin and received the response that both are safe for pa and tna people.
Cheers,

I too have difficulty finding vitamins. We do us Swiss Children's Vitamins but they are hard to find. I have read the ingredients on other vitamins and I am just not happy with the EXTRA ingredients/preservatives that they put in the vitamin. Swiss Children's have no artifical colouring or preservatives but like I said are hard to find.

you can order the rhino gummy vitamins on the company website: [url="http://www.nutritionnow.com"]www.nutritionnow.com[/url]
(don't order any of the "chews" though. they are made in a separate facility that does have nut products.)

That's very interesting...
The large jar (220 vitamins) I have from Costco has a "made in facility" warning for wheat (gluten) and milk.
It also says that the product contains no wheat (gluten), milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

i just don't trust that lil critters are safe. the label you have is inconsistent -- it says that it is made in a facility with milk, and then the next line says that it contains no milk. they shouldn't label that it contains NO milk if it's made in a facility with milk, in my opinion.
anyway, that's why i decided to go with the rhino vitamins.
