OT: Liquid Vitamin

I am in need of a good liquid vitamin for my 12 month old. I recently bought the Childlife liquid vitamin and tried it and it gave her a rash. It is Orange Pineapple flavor and my Chiro thinks that is what caused it. I have done some searching and calling around for an alternative. Many have the orange flavor. Does anyone know of a brand I can try? We do a probiotic everyday and I am starting Vit D. She refuses to eat most of the time so I feel like she needs a vitamin. She drinks the enriched organic Rice Milk as well. Help please! ( Also we have not introduced strawberries yet)

You may want to try a powdered vitamin supplement.  Has virtually no flavor and mixes easily with liquids or semi-solids like oatmeal or yogurt.

I love the brand Liquid Health.  Here is there child multi:

Liquid Health™ Children's Multiple

Children's Multiple is as complete as the Daily Multiple without the ginseng or honey. Essential Fatty Acids are added for brain growth, along with Elderberry and Vitamin C for the immune system. Your kids will love this great tasting formula. You'll love it for its completeness. Children's Multiple is an amazing blend of whole foods designed to provide the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and amino acids for growing bodies. The base of pure aloe vera juice is loaded with digestive enzymes. Sea vegetables - dubbed nature's perfect food - provide most of the nutrient in this well-rounded formula. Our Aloe Vera juice is cold-pressed, leaving the nutrients intact and the enzymes active. Stevia, a naturally sweet Paraguayan herb, is used for its beneficial properties. Because Children's Multiple is comprised of whole foods, it is appropriate for the youngest child who eats solid foods.

I use Natrol Liquid Kids Companion for my 2 1/2 year old.  Here is a link that has ingredients on it, I didn't see any orange, but I did just look quickly.    http://www.nutrasanus.com/natrol-liquid-kids-companion.html

I chose this one because of the lead levels that are in a lot of children's vitamins.  Here is a link to that as well.     http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/%7Edms/pbvitami.html

Good luck!!!

You say you are feeding her ENRICHED rice milk???  You want to stay away from anything enriched..  That is not natural source of nutrition..  You want raw nutrition..

Rice milk is a great dairy alternative, however, you want it to be pure with the original nutrients it should have...

Brown rice is best..if you are giving rice milk..

You can easily make your own..

The liquid vitamin our naturopath has our son on is..

Liquid Health. its cherry flavored..  It doesn't have synthetic nutrients in it...

My son likes it.  We put it in his oatmeal every morning..along with all the other stuff that is helping him detox...

Here is the link to the liquid health..

The Rice Milk is the Rice Dream Organic one. But I will look into it.

We use Hemp Milk (vanilla flavored) now.  We did use Rice Dream, but the nutritionist says the Hemp is way better- has omega 3's and omega 6's along with EFA's and "good proteins".   Another plus is that teh constipation he had the first 18 months of his life has gone away.

We use Kirkman's Children's multi-vitamin- it's a chewable tablet but I grind it up and mix it in applesauce for him. (they taste kinda like sweet-tarts and he doesn't like them by themselves.)
