      Can you provide them w/the recipe for the home made dough & have them do it as a class? That way they can see how it's made? That might be an option?

      We use Pamela's as well. We buy it in bulk from Amazon. That's the best bread we've found so far, but haven't tried Udi's. We've had the same problem w/Schar's bread. Can't for the life of me figure out how to make it w/o the outside being like a brick!

      gluten-free In Arizona
      We recently traveled there & had wonderful experiences in a few places. The first was at Gluten Free Creations Bakery

      They have THE BEST stuff we've ever tasted & my 5yr old loved all of it!!

      We also went to Sourdough Pizza Restaurant
      7440 E Main St # 1
      Mesa, AZ 85207-8300
      (480) 985-6658

      and they were fabulous as well. Linda the owner has Celiac & came out to speak with us. She also gets some of her stuff from the gluten-free Creations Bakery.

      and last we tried Picazzo's

      the pizza was good, but honestly we found that Sourdough tasted better!

      The bakery does sell their items online & is well worth buying from them!

      My child has one that never comes off, but she's 5 & this is the first time that she's been away & eating without me nearby.

      In my experience adults don't take Celiac very seriously & I had one teacher say "it's not like she'll die from eating gluten, right?" So yes dd has one & I feel it helps tremendously! As an adult, not sure.

      You might want to try making sandwiches out of waffles instead. I've found that my kids prefer this over the gluten-free bread!

      Does anyone know about ink pads? My dd's teacher called to find out about them & has many different brands. I called one, Center Enterprises, & they said "well, if you're concerned about it, then don't use it" Hmmm, nice response I'm guessing they're not willing to actually look into it for me.

      I might just have to get a list from the teacher, but that seems like an awful lot of work on her part, plus she shares supplies with another teacher. sigh.

      Thanks I've tried so hard to get this done & have been told that there was no interest or that summer fun was more important than this

      Finally Got An Article Written About Awareness W/my Dd!
      I've been working for about 8mths to get an article written locally about Celiac awareness & it's finally come to fruition! I'm hoping it helps get the word out especially with school starting in a few days.

      How To Help Dd With The Pain When Glutened?
      Dd (5) got glutened today (we think from an ice cream shoppe). Now she's in a lot of pain & is just screaming & throwing up.

      Is there anything we can give her to help the pain in her tummy? This is a new symptom for her. Before she would only vomit for hours. Now the pain comes along w/the vomiting. What helps alleviate the pain w/o making it worse for her? Any advice would be helpful!

      I wish I knew how to get it out there more. I've tried all our local newspapers & not one is interested in doing an article about Celiac awareness. I'm really trying to get it out there b/c I've only heard of one other child in our area that has it. If someone has a magical answer, I'd love to hear it

      Issues W/ Pizzeria Uno
      We've gone to 2 different locations & only had issues with one of them.

      The first place explained that the manager handles all the gluten-free pizzas & will bring it out to the table personally as to ensure no cross contamination. It was excellent. Dd had it & loved it! She was so excited to actually eat restaurant food w/o having to bring her own (she's 5).

      Then we went to location #2. We ordered the gluten-free pizza again & this time the server brought it out, not a manager. So I inquired if it was the gluten-free pizza & asked if she was certain there was no cross contamination.... *crickets* So, I help out & ask if it was baked separately, if it was made in a separate area & if it was cut w/a different knife. Her answer was "I believe so". Not good enough.

      I then asked if she could go back & check b/c otherwise there would be a very sick little girl w/in 15 minutes of her eating. When the server came back, she admitted that the same knife that cut our gluten pizza was used to cut the gluten-free pizza. She said they only had ONE pizza cutting tool in the kitchen

      They did remake it, but I was very leery about dd eating it.

      I guess the PSA is; even if there is a gluten-free menu, you may still need to check & double check to make sure it was properly prepared. sigh.
