Considering giving my 15-mth old boy Poly Vi Sol vitamins cause I don't think he is going enough nutrients (he eats like a bird). This morning I called and spoke with a Group Specialist about the ingredient list of their product. Advised them that I have a peanut allergy and my child can't have peanut products till the age of 3. I asked them about the natural and artificial flavoring. The response I got is Poly Vi sol with iron is hypo-allergenic, and contains no proteins meaning that isn't have peanut protein in it. Still waiting to see if they can mail me the info or call me back. She wasn't sure they could give out that info. Is there anyone out there that has peanut allergy or child has peanut allergy and giving their child these vitamins or have other suggestions?

I did give this to my PA toddler once or twice with no reaction. He HATED the taste. Still trying to find a good vitamin for him. I have heard good things about the "gummy bear" vitamins. Any suggestions from the rest of the group?

I give this to my PA, milk & egg allergic toddler, no problem. He's been taking it for over a year. We have the whole eating like a bird issue too.
It has been my experience that manufacturers won't always reveal what's in their flavorings (some fabulous trade secret [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img], but as long as I ask them does this contain peanut, milk, or egg, or come into contact with those substances, and I have their assurance it's safe, I've never (knock on wood) run into a problem.

I purchased the gummy vitamins for my PA and egg allergic DD. We bought them before her PA diagnosis. The brand we bought (which I can't remember but I bought them at Costco) was not safe for PA kids. Thankfully, I think she maybe tasted one before her diagnosis and did not have a reaction. After we got her diagnosis, we tossed the entire bottle. We've tried Flintstone's chewables but she doesn't like the taste of those either. She eats well, so I'm not pushing the vitamins with her right now.

Funny you should ask about this. I just spoke with reps from this company a few days ago. They assured me that there are no peanut/tree nut product, no dairy and no wheat. They are not manufactured in plant that contains nuts and there is no risk of cross contamination of any ingredients.
* I PERSONALLY make no gurantees of anything- just relating what they told me.

Ds disliked many vitamins until we found Natural Factors Jungle Juice (Big Friends).
They are really huge but both dd and ds have been taking them since they were about 10 mos old (now 2 1/2 and 3 1/2) called to check safety over a year ago but nothing recent, at that time they were peanut/tree nut and soy free. We have used them without a problem. When the kids were just starting out I cut the vitamin into 3 or 4 pieces and they'd chew them up without a problem.

Although I dont give them to the kids everyday (forgetfulness) we have had no difficulties with Poly Vi Sol vitamins. My kids are wierd and will eat anything that comes from a medicine dropper but putting it in juice works too.

I called about it about a year ago and they do claim is is free of pn/tn. My youngest got runny poopy from it so we stopped. We use rugrats Centrun now and it was the only company that could tell me they are pn/tn/egg/wheat/gluten/oat/rice free. I just cut them in half and 1/4 and both kids love them.
