To my knowledge there are not too many gluten-free cold cereals on the shelf without looking in the health food section of your grocery store. My family is able to tolerate Fruity Pebbles, its made from rice and as far as I know is gluten-free. Corn pops are still gluten-free now but will be changing their formula to add what starch sometime this month so be sure to check the label.

I have not tried oatmeal so I cannot help you there. I do know in the health food section of my grocery store they have wonderful gluten-free hot cereals made by Bob's Red Mill.

Hope this helps :)

Also for cooked cereal try Lundberg's Sweet Almond Rice cereal, it's wonderful. Shirley

I found that oatmeal was a problem for me so I had to give it up. There is a company called Nature's Path that makes gluten free cereals and they taste good. Its web site is www.naturespath.com. It is a Canadian company so I'm not sure if it's available elsewhere.

I LOVE :wub: the EnviroKidz Cereals. My favorite is the peanut butter panda puffs. YUM!!! Adults can enjoy fun cereals too! ha

As far as the oatmeal question goes. I personally have trouble with it. I had purchased the McKaans Oatmeal that says they are not cross contaminated and safe for celiacs. However, my tummy rumbled every time I had some.

All I can say it try it for yourself and see if you have a reaction, but do be sure to get a brand like McKaans that does not have cross contamination. Some people ARE able to eat it, I am just not one of them. :rolleyes:

These are the ones I've had:

Nature's Path makes a Corn Crunch-Em's and Rice Crunch-Em's that are like Chex.

Arrowhead Mills makes a Maple Buckwheat Flakes that are tasty.

Envirokidz's Gorilla Munch is pretty good too.

Nature's Path makes a Blue Corn Corn Flakes, which I was ambivalent on.

And some stores make corn flakes or rice puffs without malt.

Unfortunately, none of them are as well rounded as I'd like and tend to be low on fat and protein. :-( There are some online places you can get granola from that are gluten-free that I might try at some point, but haven't yet. Cream of rice with dried fruit (mmm... blueberries), milk (or milk substitute), and crushed almonds is good.

Oatmeal gives me a stomachache quicker than cream of wheat. It's been noted that some celiacs can tolerate oats though. Good luck! Thanks everyone for the great info on cereals. Fruit every day for breakfast just isn't doing it for me!

An idea for breakfast might be to make your own fruit breads, and eat a slice in the a.m. most of the prepackaged mixes have great recipes on them, also maybe you could get your library to order some gluten-free cookbooks for you to browse through. I am fortunate to be a homemaker and have time to do this, hope you do too!

I like Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Hot and Tasty Cereal. Also, I've found polenta makes a nice hot cereal for a change. I like my breakfast cereal sweet so I add butter and maple syrup or brown sugar.

Health Valley has a corn and a rice cereal that come pretty close to Corn Chex and Rice Chex. I forgot the official name of the Health Valley Corn Chex like cereal, but I eat it straight out of the box for snacks!

I have tried Kashi Cranberry Sunshine, and haven't had any problems with it. It's a change from some of the more nasty things that I have tried in the last couple of months. ;)

Keep the great ideas coming.

I know I have read that EnviroKids cereals may be cross-contaminated, and I have to say that my experience seems to bear this out. Several days ago, I was taking an afternoon nap, and I woke up to discover that my older boy had eaten an ENTIRE box of cereal (either Gorilla Munch or Amazon Corn Flakes--I can't remember which, but both are labelled gluten-free) while I was sleeping. Well, by that evening he had developed rough, red cheeks (almost bleeding) and the same sort of rash on his bottom. He's still not totally back to normal! I won't be trusting those cereals again, unfortunately!

    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • 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?
