lstroud replied to MomtoCaleb's topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseI read most of the responses to your question but wanted to make sure to add "frozen waffles" to your list. Trader Joes has great gluten-free bananna waffles and they're not very expensive. My 3 staples for breakfast for my 3 year old son are Environkidz cereal, gluten-free cinnamon toast (I buy the bread in the store but the brand name is escaping me at the moment) and the waffles. As mentioned to you by other people the Environkidz ceral and bars are great. Very reasonably priced at Trader Joes if you have one near you. My son was diagnosed at 1 year old and of course it was very stressful. He is in pre-school 5 days a week now and I was so worried about him eating gluten-free. I'm very lucky-the school staff is awesome and he has his own "drawer" of food. Anyway, hope this helps. It's so overwhelming at first finding all the gluten-free food, but trust me, it gets easier!!! And remember, McDonalds hamburger happy meals are gluten-free without the bun (not breakfast but can come in handy when you need to do the fast food thing). Take care and good luck to you...Lisa
Was looking for some help....I know it doesn't sound very healthy but often we need to hit the "drive-thru" and I only have one (out of 4) gluten-free child. He's only 20 months and doesn't quite understand but he definitely knows when he can't have what everyone else is getting. Any suggestions and thanks in advance for your comments.
