So I was hoping that you all had delt with this an alternative way. And it seems you have, thanks for the advice!
Diet is a very good way unless you have a very picky child or it is really bad (like my DS).

For myself, I treat mine with diet. When I get low, I drink V8 Splash which is a really good source, also red meat, veggies, like greens, brocilli, potatoes.
Now that I am preggo I take 2 of the Flintstones chewables a day and it helps.
