    Good Morning PR Community,

    I'm seeking a Children's Multi that does not contain folic acid. I'm homozygous for MTHFR 1298C so my children have at least one copy of it as well. In addition, I've got all kinds of b12 snps that are causing problems. It is nearly impossible to find a Childrens multivitamin that does not contain folic acid. Has anyone here found one?
    Thanks!
    Christa

    It's not chewable, however.

    I'm also homozygous for MTHFR 1298C and have been doing the same research.... these are one's I have put on my 'maybe' list. They contain folinic acid or L-5-MTHF (so at least the more tolerable types). P5P instead of B6 and adenocobalamin/hydroxycobalamin/methylcobalamin.

    I haven't tried these yet as we're still waiting on the 23andme results for my 10 yr old before I start him on a regimine.

    Hi Christa,

    Here is one.
    http://www.iherb.com/Metabolic-Maintenance-Little-One-Children-s-Multivitamin-100-Capsules/39158
    It has tiny amounts of MeCbl as well and no CyCbl.
