My son is six, an A+ Nonnie, and he is now on the BTD. I am trying to be very compliant and avoid anything derived from corn like ascorbic acid, citric acid, caramel color, etc. Unfortunately, I haven't found any supplements for him that work for this. I am specifically looking for a multiple vitamin and a multiple mineral supplement as well as vitamin c. I don't think he can swallow anything but small pills at this point, so it needs to be chewable, drinkable, or small enough to swallow.

I am sure that there has to be someone else out there that has gone through this before, so if you have, could you please share what you have found? I don't have time to search the threads right now. Thanks so much!

For vitamin C maybe buy pure rosehips and make it into a tea for him to drink.

You could try buying the multivitamin capsules from DPN and opening them up into a smoothie or soft food such as yogurt or applesauce.

You could also just skip the supplements altogether. If he's eating a reasonable variety of foods (over the course of a month, even if his daily intake seems unbalanced) then he may not need a multivitamin at all.

My son definitely needs supplements in my opinion. He is not eating a variety of foods, and we are trying to correct various issues.

supps are not my substitute for food.. healthy foods..

making things fun is my way of having anyone eat what they need.. for kids, sometimes it's what they see that changes their mind.. or fixes it.. foods all can be eaten raw while some one watches you cook it.. a snak or a mouth ful given non judgemental while walking by is much more effective then serving on a plate..

GREEN beans have every neutrient needed..
Carrots are delish, orange in color on cupkacke dressing or in carrot cake,
Beets have a fun kick in a red juice or red soup or a red smoothies..
Polenta if allowed is scrumptious with cheeses..
and all foods can be mashed into gravy..

I mean what is the issue here?  

Shrimp or fish sticks in pieces before dinner, or while watching TV,.. I mean what is the issue??

no I understand (and my suggestions might not be for A's! but the more you focus on what when or where, the more kids sense it and fight back.. manipulation is felt faster then just using immagination.. make cooky shaped foods.. leave them available on a platter in easy reach.. cuiosity will get the best of anyone.. eventually.. good luck..

my pup knows what I think.. I am convinced of it ..



Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Thank you for your suggestions & input!  My child is totally fine with the supplements I am giving him. It is food that he struggles with at times and is a picky eater who is limited by the BTD diet even further. I have had him on supplements that he needed (he shows great improvement), but I am trying to make sure that he is on supplements that are BTD compliant. Isn't there anyone else out there who has tried to do the same thing?
