  1. Thank you, I will speak with his teacher on Monday when he returns from spring break! You all have been very helpful. I have checkout a bunch of books from the library so I plan on reading through those if I have anymore questions I know where to come. Again thank you all for your help.
  2. Thank you these are great suggestions! I really appreciate it!    My other question is how to approach him about not eating things at school that aren't sent with him any suggestions on how to handle that he doesn't really seem to understand we are trying to get him to ask an adult before he eats anything so that we can make sure its wheat/gluten free.
  3. Domino's (And Some Other Pizzerias)

    Hello!   My husband works for Domino's my son has recently had to go gluten free so we all are. I asked him about it and he confirmed what many are saying here. Everything is prepared on the same surfaces so while the crust may be gluten free nothing else is. There is so much cross contamination that goes on. Most of their stores are small in space and so separating things to make everything truly gluten free would make it rather difficult. As has been stated Dominos has placed a warning that their pizza shouldn't be eaten by those with Celiacs.
  4. I love to cook and I am pretty good at it.   His favorites are toast (with nutella), Chicken Nuggets, Pizza, Mac and Cheese. He is also allergic to shellfish I should have mentioned that before. Ice cream and popsicles are a staple. HIs birthday is coming up in May any ideas on what I can make for a cake for him would be great he loves chocolate. He loves French frys. Wow I am making him sound like a junk food junkie. He also likes veggies and fruits but other then the meat mentioned above he isn't huge on meat anyway he is a major bread junkie which is making this really hard he loves rolls, bagels, donunts  and muffins. I have a bread machine so making bread isn't an issue. We have tried a few of the gluten free breads however he gets upset that they aren't "his" bread that he is used to. So anything I can get that is as close to real bread as I can get is great. I should mention his fave bread is a whole wheat one..
  5. Hello, My name is Angel, my son is 4 years old. Recently he's been breaking out in hives 3 or 4 times a day. I took him into his doctor and they did some blood work. It came back that he is allergic to wheat. They told us to go wheat free or his allergy could really start affecting him worse. I started doing some research which led to more questions. My son doesn't have Celiacs but I wasn't sure where else to go. We are going completely gluten-free in our house hold because the more I read the more it said those with a wheat allergy may also be affected by some other foods containing gluten. They want to give it some time to see if this works before doing more tests. So here are some questions,   What is the best way to introduce a 4 year old to a gluten-free diet. He is struggling with this and doesn't want to eat much because it isn't the foods he is used to.   My son is in school, how do I go about stressing to him that he can only eat the foods that I send with him?   I would appreciate any help that I can get Thank you.
