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!!!!

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
