I buy some things for the whole class (like the gluten-free play dough-it is a huge container). For the things that come up once a year -like cereal or pasta for a craft -I usually just bring in some for her. Most of what the preschool she attends has is okay because this is her second year and they make sure to order the basics from crayola or another gluten-free source (I have a wonderful preschool!).

My best advice for dealing with a preschool is to maintain contact with the teachers as they plan for activities. Make sure they are comfortable calling you (home/cell), e-mailing, and talking before/after school about what is coming up. And leave a box of stuff at school: bandaids, gluten-free cookies or candies for that surprise that will come up, regular snacks for every day, change of undies/clothes if "accidents" are still an issue.

Hi there:

The list below says that the Crayola modelling products are gluten free. They do not have added gluten but they do have cross-contamination issues. This was confirmed to me by a representative on the telephone and here is what their own website says....

Answer

The exact ingredients of our products are proprietary, however, we are happy to provide you with the 7 most common ingredient requests NOT FOUND in products currently manufactured by Crayola--This does not include products manufactured under license. Please check packaging carefully to determine manufacturing company.

Peanuts

Shellfish

Fish

Tree Nuts

Eggs

Milk

Latex

(Latex gloves are one of the personal protection options requested by and available to our employees for the occasional handling of raw materials and finished goods during the product manufacturing process.)

We are often asked if any of our products contain gluten (wheat flour). Gluten is contained only in Crayola Dough. Other Crayola modeling materials, including Model Magic modeling compound, Modeling Clay, Air-Dry Clay, and Model Magic Fusion are gluten free. All of these products, however, are produced on the same machinery. Although the machines are cleaned prior to the start of each production run, there is a slight possibility that trace amounts of gluten from Crayola Dough may be present in the other modeling compound products.

For information regarding specific ingredients not listed, please call us at 1-800-272-9652 weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time.

Please note the date on the list- I made this list in 2005. There have been many changes in products since then. Contact manufacturers for current information. My current list is several pages now and dated May 2009 (too long to post). E-mail me if you'd me to send it to you. Tania

Yes, always check the date of posts here. What could have been a safe product in 2005, may not be 2009.

Thanks Tania for sharing your current information.

Hi Tania,

I'm new to the group and read your old list of Gluten Free Wheat Free products posted in 2005. I would greatly appreciate it if you could email me your most current list which you mention below as last updated and dated May 2009. We have a 3 year old grandson who was diagnosed with Autism and is allergic to many foods especially Gluten/Wheat/Casein/Diary. Your list is invaluable and is much appreciated. Thank you again. Hoping you can email the list to my gmail account.

Hello,

I too am working on gluten free (also dairy and egg free) supplies for a first grader and a preschooler. I would be thrilled to get a copy of your list. I have been e-mailing and calling companies, but your work could save me hours (maybe days!).

Thanks!

Thank you again for the helpful information! I'm wondering if you know about Yes! paste. I'm trying to find an option for my 2 year old in his pre-school class. I found recipes for making paper mache, but I was hoping to find a suitable paste for their class. I e-mailed the makers of Yes! paste (Gane Bothers & Lane), and this is the reply:

The ingredients are: water, dextrin, borax, glucose, glycerin and preservatives. I just want you to know that I can not guarantee that this product is gluten/dairy/egg free.

Any thoughts?

Thanks again!

Tolly

Does anyone know about ink pads? My dd's teacher called to find out about them & has many different brands. I called one, Center Enterprises, & they said "well, if you're concerned about it, then don't use it" Hmmm, nice response :angry: I'm guessing they're not willing to actually look into it for me.

I might just have to get a list from the teacher, but that seems like an awful lot of work on her part, plus she shares supplies with another teacher. sigh.

I wanted to update this list with a few things I researched independently since they weren't covered on the list. They were confirmed by e-mail or phone in late August.

Plaid Paints - Makes Apple Barrel- sold at Walmart is gluten/dairy/egg free

Rich Art tempera paint, sold at Michael's craft stores is gluten/dairy/egg free.

Prang paints - all are gluten/dairy/egg free

Now to start working on the stickers......

Thanks again for this list!

Thank you for posting this list! I thought we had our bases covered at pre-school but after my 3yo had 2 "abnormal" bm's after art class today, I'm questioning if she was glutened. So although I will specifically look at the bottles of paint they used (tempura or finger), I can also give them this more robust list of items to use as a reference. Good stuff!

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      Looks like you got some good info from previous posters.   I don't understand why you and your doctor think that dairy contains gluten?  Lactose is a sugar not a protein like gluten.  I think you have some other issues.  
    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
