i am new here. we are trialling our 2.5yr old on gluten free due to behavioural and sleep issues. within a week we noticed a huge change, she was so pleasant and sleeping really well too. until yesterday. the only difference is yogurt i gave her. it was ski dlite honey buzz. is that a bad one with hidden gluten?

has tapioca as a thickener....I would suggest sticking with more natural, less "altered" versions of yogurt......

Fage is nothing but milk and enzymes. You can add any flavoring/fruit you want.

If you are in the U.S. companies cannot hide gluten. It must be labeled (outside of the obvious things like a loaf of wheat bread or whathaveyou).

I found 2 pages that gave me nutrition information (calories, etc.) but neither had the ingredients for this yogurt. I avoid all except plain yogurt due to 'natural flavors'. They may or may not be gluten-free, but they likely contain free glutamates (i.e. very close to MSG) which bother me. I recently found a plain yogurt that I used to like, turns out it also has pectin added so I didn't get it since I didn't feel like experimenting.

Yoplait says gluten free right on it --- but it's in small letters - you have to look closely. Chobani & Okios (sp?) are gluten free.

Stoneyfield Farms makes the best (in my and many other's opinion) yougurt in the world. It has six different strains of probiotics, it is sweetened with sugar instead of corn syrup, it's 100% organic, and it is delicious. I get it at my local health food store for $5.19 a quart. I usually get french vanilla because I have problems with fruit. (All they carry at this store is french vanilla or plain.) If vanilla doesn't thrill her, you could always add your own fruit or even jelly.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I think Activia has wheat in it! I looked about a year ago and it had it.

I used to eat Yoplait alot until I gave up dairy altogether. Now just Proboitic pills for me.

Activa is made in a shared facility. Depending on the flavor, it does not have wheat in it except for the breakfast blends i believe, i could be wrong.

I actually sprung for a yogurt maker and make my own now. I've read, but never tried, that you can do it in a crockpot or even with a heating pad. My other thought is that she might have an issue with dairy? My son does ok with cheese, but when we used to give him milk he would be up all night.

This isn't dietary, but some of my friends have had good luck with doing epsom salt baths at night to help with sleep.

Just glancing through and they have at least 2 varieties, Breakfast and Fiber with cereal? That have wheat. The plain doesn't seem to but it says processed in a shared facility. Like everything else, read the labels every time!
