Sandwich Bread For Kids
0

15 posts in this topic

We're totally new to gluten-free and I'm looking for a sandwich bread that my kids will eat and/or tolerate. Prior to gluten-free we ate standard 100% whole wheat, so they're okay not having the texture and sweetness of white bread. They are 2 & 4 years old, my 4 year old especially loves his pb&j! Premade would be fantastic but if anyone knows of an awesome mix I'd give it a try. Thanks!

I use corn tortillas. Not the same, but they do make good wraps.

My girls love schar bread, its sold on the shelf at our store and nice and soft. Only problem is it has to be eaten fairly quick because there are no preservatives in it.

We use Canyon Bakehouse when we are in need of bread. It's very expensive though so we only use it when we absolutely need bread!

Yes, Canyon Bakehouse is (IMO) the very best gluten-free bread on the market. It's expensive, but so good! Udi's multi-grain is good too. It tastes more like french bread to me, but it cost slightly less than the Canyon Bakehouse.

i haven't had canyon bakehouse (and now i want it lolz) but udi's or rudi's breads are good - love the schar, too, and theirs comes in different varieties (like rolls) i haven't tried those yet.  my grandkids eat the sliced bread (udi's rudi's or schar) and they like it.

NotMe, if you like Rudi's, you'll LOVE Canyon Bakehouse. The taste is similar but Canyon Bakehouse doesn't fall apart like Rudi's does.

Buy a gluten-free baking book and make your own.  My 10 yo likes Udi's, but she likes my home made bread a lot better.

Thank you! I found a store near my college that sells Canyon Bakehouse, I'm going to try it first since so many of you seem to like it. If the kids like it too then that's probably what we'll have around until I can figure out how to start baking some decent gluten-free bread on my own to save money.

Is there a particular book you recommend? Sadly I'm pretty new to cooking from scratch, we relied heavily on processed/boxed meals and restaurants before the gluten-free switch this week. I have some time this weekend and want to get some good cookbooks to have on hand, but I'm hoping to find some that start at a simple/beginner's level.

i have a couple of cookbooks, but i don't like *all* the recipes in any one particular book - i don't have a 'go-to' - the interwebs have been mighty handy.  a huge help because you can not only get recipes on the web, most times you can read/give feedback, adjustments or variations.  you might want to check out the baking/cooking section of this forum :)  maybe ask the cookbook question there - there are cooks/bakers on pretty much every level from beginner to accomplished.

After trying every gluten free bread on the market and gluten free flours I was told about 'Maninis Gluten free flour' and I have to say it makes bread that taste exacly like the wheat bread I remember. I am sold, it's really that good! We made the 'Miracolo Pane Classic Peasant Bread Mix' and it's like regular white bread and it smells heavenly while baking.

I don't like canyon house as much as udi's and my daughter (not the gluten free one) has either a bagel or pb&j sandwich from udi's bagels or bread every day.

Jorona...I would recommend a cookbook called gluten-free Makeovers by Beth Hillson. Of all my many glutenfree cookbooks this one by far has been the most helpful to me even with using a bread machine. The author even has the same brand and model bread machine as me.

There is also a section in the back of the book where substitutions for things are listed...most helpful to me  since I also can't have corn, soy, oats, or lactose.

For an all purpose glutenfree blend she gives the amounts or rice flour, and corn or potato starch, and tapioca starch. Most of her bread, cake and self-rising blends contain a certain percent of sweet white sorghum flour. Because of her I started using sorghum flour and it really makes a big difference to me as I especially like the taste of the bread I make using it rather than just using the rice, potato and tapioca starch blend which seem to me are just pure starch.

The publisher of the book is Lifelong Books and the price somewhere around $19 but I bought mine on sale from a place called Edward R. Hamilton Discount Books and so paid considerably less for it.

And since you are new to glutenfree baking I would like to prepare you for failures at it as they seem to happen to everyone new at glutenfree baking. Just hang in there and keep trying. :)

And ask questions here as you need to as many people here will try to be helpful to you.

My cousin who's gluten-free (and fairly picky) has raved to me about Schar before. When it comes to mixes, I know Gluten Free Pantry carries a great mix specifically for sandwich bread.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
