I see it says spices...do I need to be worried? She's eaten it before with no reaction but I just wanted to ask ya'll if you've ever used it.
Thanks!
and for the record...it's been 4 1/2 weeks and kara hasnt' gained any weight that I can tell. It's been THREE weeks and we still can't get the Celiac "specialist" dietician to call us back!! :angry:

Banquet is part of ConAgra. ConAgra is one of the companies that will label their gluten. So if it doesn't specifically call something out in parenthesis after "spices", then it should be OK.

Here is a list of companies that will call out their gluten sources. If you read the label and it does not say wheat/rye/barley/oats, then it's OK.

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Is she feeling better, though? I didn't notice any immediate weight or height gain in my daughter, but she felt remarkably "unsick" in that first month of gluten-free.

I don't think there is a standard for how much weight to expect to gain--it can be hard to gain while you're still healing, for sure. It can take those villi a while to repair enough to begin absorbing enough nutrients to see a weight gain.

I eat those and I'm fine.

Also her body needs time to heal. Once the healing is started then the body can start to add weight ect.

Thank you. I feel better about the weight gain (or lack thereof). I guess I thought it would be immediate. She does feel better...although she was never aware that she felt bad. I just asked her today if she felt better and she said yes..she feels happy, sometimes, for no reason. :) She goes back to the Dr. in early Jan so I'm interested to see what he says. I still cant' believe it's been a MONTH and no one has called to let me know if she's lactose intolerent. She has no symptoms and until I hear otherwise..i'm letting her have her cheese and milk.

I wish there was a way we could all get our kids together to play and talk to. Kara broke down crying in the car the other day..saying it was hard to watch her friends eat her favorite foods in the lunchroom. She'd love to have a friend in the same boat she's in. If any of your kids have webkinz...email me with their username and I'll give you Kara's and they can at least be online friends in webkinz world. I might even make that a main post in a while so the kids can play online and it'd be interesting to see where every one is from.
Ok..I need to go play with the dog.
Thanks again everyone!

I hope she gains weight soon, it can take a while. Im going on two years and I dont think Im fully healed yet but I have had symptoms for decades and that makes a big difference.

Check and see if there is a R.O.C.K. group (Raising our Celiac Kids) in your area, if not contact the local celiac sprue association and maybe you could have a get together at a church so the kids could play and she could make some friends.My daughter is a little young still at 3 for the net :) but we hope to get involved in a rock group soon.
