Hi there,

Now that ds has turned 3, we're going to switch him from multivitamin drops to chewables. Today, our pediatrician gave us sample of Centrum Jr. Complete chewable multivitamins. I read the box, checked out their faq (link below), and then thought I'd come to the real authorities here! Especially those whose children have simliar allergies to ds.

Thanks in advance for comments/opinions.

We use Centrum junior complete. I also checked out their info and had a rep from the company confirm that they were safe for my daughter. She does not have all of the same allergies as your child though. My children actually likes the taste too! We tried the Arthur ones and they did not like the taste. I tried them out and had to agree! I was surprised in my vitamin hunt to find that one company, I forget which one, could not provide me with cross contamination information. So needless to say, I did not buy their vitamins. I should look into a vitamin D and calcium supplement probably too someday.

Thanks everyone! I think we'll try the Centrum ones we received from our pediatrician.

My kids have peanuts, nuts, mustard, egg allergies. But not milk, and soy has been outgrown.
The Centrum vitamins were fine for us.
