Need Help...eating And Feeding Evaluation Form From School
0

4 posts in this topic

they know she has celiac disease at school. she was just diagnosed this summer.

school has been in for 4 days, tomorrow is day 5.

so far i am just sending her lunch, and she has permission to get fruit and drink and ice cream and veggies from school if there is something she wants and can have.

so far she has bought tangerines and a drink, but thats it.

today the school nurse called, and has sent home a paper to have filled out and signed by the doc just to help educate and make everyone aware and everything official.

(she is planning to come to my support group meeting i am having monday night)

so i need help as to what to put on this form.

it says:

list any dietary restrictions or special diet

list any allergies or food intolerances to avoid

list foods to be substituted

list any special equipment or utensils that are needed

indicate any other comments about the childs eating or feeding patterns

there is also a food allergy action plan, but i dont think that one needs anything as it deals with epipens, etc

also, a note from the nurse that the cafeteria manager sent me a copy of the menu for the whole month and wants me to know that if there is nothing she can eat on a certain day to let her know and she will be glad to fix whatever she needs.

thanks in advance for all your help

i am still new to this, and am learning..............

on the last 2 sites you need to read the products and make sure they say gluten free cause they don't sell some stuff that isn't.

If you google celiac 504 you should get some pretty good examples of answers for these questions. Also, try any of the websites of the celiac centers like Childrens Hospital Boston for advice about school.

 

http://www.childrenshospital.org/clinicalservices/Site2166/mainpageS2166P12.html

 

this page has a school packet that is really helpful.

 

http://www.childrenshospital.org/clinicalservices/Site2166/mainpageS2166P110.html

 

this is what usually I put.

 

list any dietary restrictions or special diet

Celiac - No gluten (any foods containing wheat,rye,barley, or oats) - barley may be listed on labels as malt
list any allergies or food intolerances to avoid
list foods to be substituted

Can eat fruit, vegetables, milk (chocolate and regular) [fill in]
list any special equipment or utensils that are needed

Avoid cross contimination with any breads or cereals. Food should be prepared on clean surface. Wash any pots. Only use clean metal utensils (etc.)

 

indicate any other comments about the childs eating or feeding patterns

there is also a food allergy action plan, but i dont think that one needs anything as it deals with epipens, etc

No epi pen is needed

also, a note from the nurse that the cafeteria manager sent me a copy of the menu for the whole month and wants me to know that if there is nothing she can eat on a certain day to let her know and she will be glad to fix whatever she needs.
thanks in advance for all your help

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
