Does anyone know of a safe vitamin for young children. My DD has always taken the Lil Critters Vitamins but she has no allergies. My son is now 2 and we are looking for a safe viatamin for him to take. I have sent an email to Lil Critters to see if they are safe but I have not received anything back yet. Anyone else use vitamins that you know are safe?

I have used L'il Critters for about a year now. On the bottle it states..."This products contains no artificial color, flavors, preservatives, wheat (gluten), milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts or soy". You can't get any safer then that :). I have never called but it would probably be smart to check anyway.

My son used to use Lil Critters gummies...before I found out he had a PA and TNA. But one day, I read the label and saw "A May Contain..." label on it and that was the end of that. I guess they have changed since then. (This was about 4-5 years ago!)
He takes Flintstones gummies now, but they have Red 40 in them and it is great to see the Lil Critters have no artificial coloring! I will have to check them out again!

Tiggermom,
Is there a phone number on your bottle of Lil Critters? If so, could you post it? I cannot find their website either, could you also post that? Thanks!

They said they label for the Top 8 and, if in the future, there were to be cross-contamination, they would label for that in a "May Contain" statement.

After calling manufactures and having my son's (2.5 yo and 4.5 yo) taste test we are using the following.
Enzymatic Therapy - Sea Buddies - Daily Multiple (Chewable Splash berry)
Enzymatic Therapy Sea Buddies - Immune Defense (Chewable Sparkleberry)
[url="http://www.enzy.com,"]http://www.enzy.com,[/url] 800-783-2286
Nordic Naturals - Children's DHA (Chewable Soft Strawberry)
[url="http://www.nordicnaturals.com"]http://www.nordicnaturals.com[/url] 800-662-2544
Note: My now 4.5 did not like Sea Buddies Daily when he tried them when he was 3.5 but liked them at 4 when I tried them again. He was on Animal Parade before he was diagnosed with PA (3.5) but after talking with the mfg. I was not comfortable with their response so switched.
Hope this helps.

FYI:
i started my own thread about Rhino Gummy Vites and lo and behold, they are the same company as Lil Critters, as I have received the same response from the same person:
Thank you for your inquiry. Yes they are made in a facility that makes peanuts, but we do not use the same equipment or lines We follow all GMP regulations to prevent cross contamination.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you,
Soozie Caldera
Customer Service
So, for those of you wondering about Rhino Gummy Vites and/or Lil Critters, they ARE produced in the same facility as peanuts. Now they may take extra precautions to ensure that cross contamination does not occur, but WHY not label it correctly, so at least WE can make the judgement call!?!?
