Vitamins without artifical sweetners?

I was wondering if anyone knows of a great multi kids vitamine without artifical sweetners.
imho, I would rather give my children a true sweetner then a chemicaly made one, but for the life of me I can't find anything without an artifical sweetner.

Does anyone have any suggestions on brands?

Thank you!

No brands off hand, but I would look for ones w/ Xylitol-I have looked a bit, but can't seem to find any with iron (Xylitol is actually good for you in a variety of ways)

Keeping an eye on this one

Nutri Stars by Rainbow Light might be what you're looking for. They're food based, free of all the junk and my kiddos love them. I think I bought them from VitaCost a few months back for a decent price. Hope it helps, mama!

Thank you for the suggestions so far!
any more??

I knew there had to be some out there.

I was thinking, that thankfully my son has no allergies, but I could see a child with sensativites and food issues having a lot of problems taking some vitamines.

I just checked out the Nutri Star
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/re.../dp/B000FTIWQK

and it has that Xylitol in it.

Lil Gummies. We get ours at Costco, but Walmart and health food stores sell them, too. These also do not have artificial colors or preservatives

thanx for that. I thought I saw them at Costco but I wasn't sure if my memory was right or not.
I think will trt a smaller jar from Wal-mart first before we invest in them from Costco, lol

Nutrition Now Rhino gummies have only fructose (fruit sugar) in them, and any color comes from beets, etc. They are the ones we use.
