So right now I take Deva calcium supplements. They're cheap and they do what they're supposed to, so as a budget-friendly choice they're good. The pills are HUGE though, which can be a bit tiresome, especially since you're supposed to take 2-3 per day. So I'm wondering about liquid or chewable calcium+D supplements. Do you guys use them? If so, are there any brands in particular you'd suggest? I'm looking for something relatively affordable.

I take these: http://www.everydayvitamin.com/nutritio ... 4AodLCEADg
the only thing is, you have to make sure you seal up the baggie they are in or they get rock hard. I also take an additional D supplement because i've been deficient, but if you're drinking fortified soymilk, too then you will probably be ok.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll give 'em a try. I do drink fortified plant milks so one dose of those should be enough.

I take an off-brand tums for my calcium supplement. It doesn't have vitamin D, but i take my multivitamin which does at the same time.

I am using my kids Rhino calcium plus vitamin d chews, because I left the bag open and they became rock hard. I can chew them, but my kids can't now. I spent like $9.99 on the box and each chew contains 500mg of calcium and 500IU of vitamin d. The box is a 75ct.

I just checked and I think they are the same brand as the ones listed above. It is a good deal because most at the store are 2 chews per serving and the calcium amount is lower.

Yep, that's the same brand as the ones ijustdiedinside mentioned, just for kids. One could always double-bag them. Other than the internet site mentioned above, does anyone know where these can be obtained? Like do Whole Foods or places of that sort carry them? I think VeganEssentials has them as well, but that's also on the internet.
