What To Feed 1 Year Old

3 posts in this topic

My 11 month daughter has had violent GI reactions to gluten products. She had a gluten and allergy blood panel and Celiac Disease nor allergies were shown in the blood work. Her pedi suggested that she go to a GI doctor to have a biopsy, but I don't want to put her through that at her young age. In the meantime, we are making sure that she has a gluten-free diet. So far, she is a very happy and healthy baby being gluten-free.

She only has 4 teeth so options for foods are already limited. I want to give her more textured foods. So far, I've given her rice cereal, yogurt, rice puffs, fruits, veggies, potatoes, sweet potatoes, ang gluten free waffles. I bought some gluten free pancake mix and Udi's gluten-free bread today. Do you have any other suggestions?

Actually most babies at this age can eat almost anything, regardless the number of teeth. They just chew with their gums.

You can give her the bread with all kinds of spreads, cooked or fresh vegetables, meat or chicken in various forms, mashed potatoes, rice, practically anything you are having cut into smaller pieces.

As for the celiac, there will be no use to biopsy her at this time if she doesn't eat gluten regularly.

My youngest daughter is 13 months and she eats gluten/dairy free right now - she eats anything I give her, whether it be rice, beans, any fruits, any cooked veggies, cooked potatoes, small bites of meat, etc. She never did like pureed baby foods so she's been eating table foods and chewing with her gums from before she had any teeth.

    • Hi Sunshine, There is a program called a 504 plan that some schools will follow if you get one approved.  It helps the school identify proper ways to deal with a child's particular needs.  Probably it is helpful to have a 504 plan, but they may require a formal diagnosis for it.  I suggest you talk to the school and ask them about it.  Tell them the situation with the kid and about the stress he would need to go through to get diagnosed.  They may be willing to work with you without a formal diagnosis.   I am not saying you absolutely have to have a 504 plan for him.  School districts vary and some may be more accommodating than others.  A 504 plan may give you certain rights, but I  am no expert on them. The gluten challenge is 12 weeks of eating gluten for blood tests.  The payback for being formally diagnosed is questionable IMHO.  Treatment is the same regardless, eating gluten-free for life.  One thing to be aware of is that celiac disease has a genetic factor.  So he got the gene from one of the parents.  Anyone else in the family could have celiac develop at some point.  So testing every couple years for all family members is a good idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Thank you everyone. I appreciate all of the information and support.  I am feeling overwhelmed right now and it was really getting me down yesterday. I don't feel so hopeless now. 
    • Okay. I think I will start with an allergist and a dietitian. 
    • Yes, that list I posted includes stuff to look out for in your cosmetics as well, I think. Spices get contaminated often depending on brands, sources, and packaging plants, you have to find brands that are certified, I find Spicely Orangics works here. Supplement wise I am on a ton. I take combinations of Liquid Health Brand, Stress & Energy and Neurologic Support for B-Vitamins, I take Doctors Best Chelated Powdered Magnesium. I drink a bunch of almond milk and eat a lot of nuts, seeds, green leafy veggies, and a huge viarity of foods always having a mix to balance out my needs in vitamins (I studied alot an worked with a dietician to learn what contains what and find my balance). I found a IBS targeted probitotic from jarrow seems to work best with me and no bloat. List of other supplements if you want but with celiacs different people can get different deficiencies and you should probably talk to a dietician and see about having your own regiment built up. I just listed the common ones. I was thinking about this later on and after I got off the stuff for awhile I found myself randomly vomiting from some foods, none of the brain fog, numbness, Just throwing up. Ended up I developed intolerance to certain foods like egg yolks, soy, and a few others things. I also developed allergies to corn where I would just get sores in my mouth and digestive tact and run 99-102F Fevers when I ate anything contaminated with it. And a peanut allergy that caused me to distend and swell throwing up for hours and getting a rash later on. My different reactions to different foods made my dietician laugh at how odd my body is (we both did after talking for awhile) and my doctors found it interesting and kept on wanting to run more test.
    • I will cut dairy out immediately. I have eliminated most processed foods already. I do use a lot of spices. I read labels on everything. It is so overwhelming. Is there a good list of ingredients to look for in cosmetics, soaps, supplements... ? It has been recommended that I take a probiotic, calcium and vitamin D. Do you take supplements?
