Obviously these are not all reflux friendly or toddler friendly, but thought I'd share a little research!

Thanks for the list! I also use a kids liquid calcium supplement that is fruit flavored and gets added to juice. 2 tsp. of it has 50% DV of calcium, and 67% vitamin D. I give it to my 5 year old, and my 1 year old, and they have not noticed. Usually my 5 year old can tell when I add something to his drinks and won't take it, but not with this.

I got it at a health food store near me (in PA- not a chain). It is Life Time Kids' liquid calcium magnesium citrate, cherry flavor. The bottle says it is formulated and distributed in Orange, CA, but there isn't a phone number listed anywhere. Maybe it can be found on-line? I haven't checked.

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Thanks for this! I am wondering what the heck I am going to do when Sebastian is on food one of these years. What makes me sad is that out of your list, I think we can have collard greens (he kept running over a bunch of it ith his lawnmower in our kitchen while we put away groceries), turnip greens, okra, white beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and bok choy. Oh, well.. that is better than nothing! Thanks again!!!! This just reminds me that there are waaaayyyy more things he can eat than NOT eat!

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including engi.nowaira.net, engi@nowaira.net, Engi@nowaira.us, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online.

My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
Thanks for the list. We have been giving Lil Critters multi-vitamin, fish oil, and vitamin D supplement. But in order to be compliant with completely soy free, corn free, dairy free, we have to find a new vitamin chain.
