Very Confused

4 posts in this topic

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I have three children, two that have been recently diagnosed with celiac disease. I am having a very hard time getting them to eat. My son is 9 and my daughter will be 6 next Tuesday. She (Abbey-Rose) is the tough one. She was very picky to begin with. Now I am afraid she is going to starve to death :( . Her biopsy was done on Monday, her GI doctor said that her duodenum looked suspicious, does anyone know what that means. I will gladly take any advice anyone has on how to cope with all of the info. and ways to get them to eat.

Thanks,

Stephanie

Hi Stephanie.

There is a book out about fun foods for kids to eat that are gluten free. I have made my niece (celiac) corn dogs, ravioli, etc. Also, Danna Korn has a book about raising your children gluten-free and also you may want to see if there is a ROCK (raising our celiac kids) group in your area -- they're bound to have some good ideas.

Does your daughter like chicken nuggets? There are gluten free chicken nuggets -- sold at Whole Foods and other health food stores. Also, there is good gluten-free pasta in different shapes. Kraft macaroni and cheese -- the cheese sauce packet is gluten free (you should call to check, I haven't checked in several months) so you can so you can use gluten-free pasta and then make the cheese sauce.

Also, Kinnikinnick makes good gluten-free bread (www.kinnikinnick.com) for PB&J sandwiches or grilled cheese, etc. (the bread is better if it is lightly toasted, but it is the only ready made bread I will eat).

Hope that helps. Good luck.

Kim, gluten-free for 5+ years

Kim, I was wondering if you have the name of those gluten-free chicken nuggets? My kids are nugget junkies and I would like to make sure our Whole Foods carries them before my kids go gluten-free. (The finish testing next month) Thanks.

Also, would you happen to know if Kinnikinnick carries any yeast free breads?

And are the breads really more like real bread, or are they very dense like the other store bought gluten-free breads? I can't get past how heavy they are, and I sometimes try to slice one in half since two pieces is just too heavy for a sandwich.

God bless,

Mariann

I ordered the white sandwich bread from Kinnikinnick and it was very good. Hope ate a grilled cheese and I had some french toast. It is worth the $$ and A LOT better than what is found in the local stores!!!!
