Adult Sugar Free Gummy Multi Vitamin??
They also don't have minerals like copper and selenium or all the B vitamins.

I found a gummy that has everything but copper AND it's sugar free! Do a search for Slice of Life Multi (get the sugar free one). I checked and this particular gummy vitamin is for adults and is sweetened with a fruit called Lo Han Fruit and apparently that is the only alternative sweetener that doesn't convert to sugar alcohol in the body. I've switched to this gummy. It's pretty good for sugar free. I just can't swallow those other ones anymore. I found the company's website here if you want to check it out: http://www.heronutritionals.com/products/slice-of-life-/sugar-free-multi-
Let's talk at a year.
My NUT and Surgeon both say absolutely not on the gummies, that they don't provide everything we need. There will also be some long term post-ops here that will tell you to just throw away the gummies that they are worthless. Others seem to have ok labs with them.
If you are going to take them, make sure you read the RDA label and know what is in them and what percentage of RDA and remember that most of us are prescribed to take double the RDA so you may need to take more than 2-3 a day and you may need to supplement what is missing.

Additionally, there have been several studies linking gummy vitamins to tooth decay in children. Even with small amounts of sugar, the gummy residue adheres to teeth and causes very bad decay.
