alternative vitamin to Flintstones?

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a vitamin alternative to Flintstones? My main reason is to take out the dyes. I have tried a few other "alternative" brands without dyes for the kids but none seem to work as well as Flintstones when it comes to nutrient uptake. Plus, it has iron, which a lot of kid vitamins seem to lack (that I've noticed anyway).

I would appreciate recommendations. And please refrain from kids just need a healthy diet, etc. I am very aware of that and do my best. My children have celiac disease and eat well as a result. But they still need supplementation. As it is, I'm already needing to give them extra vit D and calcium. So they have bloodwork taken every 6 months checking for various things. I just want to get away from the dyes and the docs always recommend Flintstones when asked what vitamin is good for kids. Thanks!
