  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I have posted in the support group section with no luck on replies. Does anyone know if a Roseville support group exists for parents of Celiac Kids? I am interested in joining is there is one. Thanks!
  3. We go a few times every summer, and as they check my bags, I start it off with letting them know that my 4 year old has Celiac Disease and requires a special diet. I have NEVER had a problem. I do have a Doctor's note, but have never had to pull it out. I would recommend getting a note from your Dr. for any amusement places in the future, but I have never had a problem at the park in Vallejo.
  4. Cruise

    We took a Carnival cruise last April, and they were great in the dining room. The maitre'd came out every night to talk with me about the next evening's meal, and how they could prepare it for my celiac daughter. I did take a lot of snacks for her, and they told me I could use a portion of their fridge in the kitchen if I needed it.
  5. On my daughter's 2nd b-day, we had an "art party." For the dessert, we had the kids build their own ice cream sundaes in place of cake. We had tons of toppings, and the kids gobbled up the dessert. We simply put a candle in my daughter's ice cream and sang to her. We made "Pamela's" brownies last year, and topped them with icing. My daughter who is NOT a celiac wants an ice cream sundae instead of cake this year, since her sister's was such a hit.
  6. We go there about once a month, and never have a problem. I usually cook a gluten-free pizza, and freeze the slices. When we go there, I ask them to put it on some parchment paper, and run it through the oven. My daughter loves getting pizza warm and it always comes out crispy.
  7. Suggestions For Disney World

    We are approaching our long awaited trip to DisneyWorld ourselves, and about a month ago, I typed in "gluten free Disneyworld" in google and up popped tons of suggestions of places to eat there. All through each park, and incuding the restraunts in the hotels. It was the most comprehensive list I have seen. Good Luck and enjoy!
  8. My suggestion is to contact your aunt, and ask the brand of turkey she has purchased. Then, get online, and check it out. I would also ask your aunt if she puts the stuffing in the turkey. Last year was our 1st gluten-free holiday, and I just brought some Oscar Meyer turkey slices for her, and she was fine with that. I was pretty intimidated about it all, so tried to keep it simple, for my own sanity. I guess it matters how old your little doll is, and if she is at the age, that she notices the difference of your plate and hers. Happy Thanksgiving!
  9. Disneyland

    I have GREAT news!!! If you are thinking of traveling to Disneyland, or have a trip planned...let me share my findings! We got back last night, and had a great gluten free trip! We called ahead and recieved NO help. I was rather disappointed, until we arrived at the character breakfast at Goofy's kitchen and I asked to speak to the chef about my daughter's "special diet." The chef came out and offered my daughter gluten-free pancakes, waffles, fresh fruit, ham, blueberry or carrot muffins, and chocolate chip cookies. After telling him what she wants, he brought it out a few minutes later. He assured us the syrup was gluten-free, and he would be checking back with us again. His name was Chris and he said he is head chef for the restaurants in the Disneyland hotel. He also told us that the Pizza Port in Tomorrowland will make a gluten free pizza (which she tried and devoured!), Buzz Lightyears restaurant in Tomorrowland has been instructed to carefully make a gluten-free burger with no bun. The Plaza Inn will make a gluten-free pasta dish with brown rice pasta, and he also told us about the storytellers Cafe in the Grand Californian hotel. My parents went to an Italian restaurant for lunch one day and asked for any gluten-free options, and she brought out a menu of gluten-free dishes. This restaurant is in California Adventure park, but I am not sure of the name. Also, they will let you take food into the park, as long as it is already prepared (like sandwiches). Their reason is because they don't want people taking up picnic tables to make their own sandwiches. So, after my daughter met her idol Mary Poppins, and ate her 1st gluten-free pizza, it was by far the happiest place on earth for her (and me, because I watched her smile light up!)
  10. We have the book "Eating Gluten Free with Emily" and I agree it is a great book! My 2 year old Celiac is a little young for it, but my 4 year old, non-Celiac loved it. I am however going to take the one suggestion to make my own book! What a great idea! You can't get any more personal than that!
  11. I have a 2 year old, and have fallen in love with our cooler/warmer/diaper bag. It is a backpack looking "diaper bag" that has compartments on each side for a cup, but in the front, it has an insulated compartment to hold warm or cold foods. I use a microwavable cool/hot "thing" that you buy in the area of the store that sells compresses, and ace bandages. Mine was $2 and I can heat it up, and throw it in the compartment with my daughters warm food. It will stay warm for a couple of hours. If I take cold things, I just throw a frozen block in the compartment with her cold foods. The large area of the bag is used for all kinds of snacks that we need, that I just keep in there. She has fruit snacks, m & m's, corn cakes, pretzels, dried cranberries, and a baggie of dry cereal. I always travel with it, if we have to stop somewhere, and there is nothing on the menu for my lil' one! Good Luck! We are 1 year gluten free, and still learning!
  12. I though they were gluten free as well!
  13. I have been feeding my daughter gluten-free food for the past year, and have avoided any sort of food that I haven't called the manufacturer on. Since she is getting a bit older, (just turned 2) she is starting to notice when people hand her and her sister something, and I have to take hers away from her. So, my question is, what are the ingredients that can be suspect to hiding gluten? I know modified food starch...BUT, I was listening to Danna Korn speak a few months ago, and she said that although she has never come across modified food starch containing wheat, it is possible. So, I am asking because if we are at a fair, or during a weekend when the food places are closed, can you tell me the ingredients that are most often hiding gluten? I hope I am making myself clear...I know what I am trying to say I realize Kraft, Nestle, and many others won't hide it, but if she is handed an ice cream from an ice cream truck, what are the suspect ingredients that we sholdn't risk in giving her?
  14. Davis Ca Great Gf

    YAHOO!!! THanks for the info! We will definetely check it out! My mom lives in Vacaville, and we live in Roseville, so we travel through there weekly, and occassionally stop at the Davis Co-op! Thanks for posting!
  15. My little story... We went to a Japanese restaurant tonight, and ordered my daughter a side of steamed rice and cold tofu. They brought tofu with tempura all over it, and laying in soy sauce. Needless to say, I sent it back. I explained what I wanted "cold tofu with nothing on it!" They brought cold tofu, with ginger and green onions on it, laying in a tempura sauce. The tempura sauce has soy sauce in it. So, I sent it back. I explained a 3rd time, my daughter cannot have any sort if wheat at all! Please, cold tofu only, in a bowl! They got it right the 3rd time, and by that time, my daughter was full on rice, and I was exhausted. Another time I went to Chili's and quickly said, "my daughter is on a special diet, so can you heat up her food for me, that I brought?" The waitress looked at me in disgust, and replied, a baby on a diet??? I am sure my looks could have killed...I went on my speech about her being gluten free and having a disease. I went on and on, ending with "we have come to the conclusion that she cannot have anything in your restaurant, so can you please heat up her food?" "Yes, of course" was the waitresses reply. So, my question do you explain what you need or want at a restaurant? I always feel like I try to avoid the word "disease" because it sounds awful, but a "food allergy" is not taken seriously. I usually throw in that she will get sick if contaminated. How do you explain to the employees what you need?
