Looking For Ideas For A Preschool Holiday Potluck

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

My daughter's class is having a hot chocolate party on Tues and the parents have been asked to bring finger foods. I'm not much of a baker but wanted to make something gluten-free that would be tempting enough for my daughter so that she wouldn't notice all the gluten-y baked goods.

I'd love any and all suggestions! Thank you!!

mmm... what about making cookie samwiches? Make a sugar cookie recipie (which you can find on here by searching), cut the dough to size, then put some frosting or whathaveyou inbetween the layers. For added fun, perhaps add some colored sugar or something dusted on top of them.

Random thought, not sure if it would work, but something like that might work.

How about fruit kabobs, cheese & deli meat roll-ups., marshmallow snowmen, Christmas mice cookies, gluten-free chex snack mix,, when we did this we made for everyone in the class.......another is sugar cookies (gluten-free, of cours) & ready made icing & jimmies & all the kids decorated a cookie themselves.

When my daughter was young, I made caramel corn. It's easy to make a big batch of it and I put it in individual bags so they could take it home if they wanted to and it would be free from cross contamination. Her class had mulitple food allergies so I needed something that was safe for all. Luckily the boy with the corn allergy wasn't in that class. He was a tough one!

If you want something more festive, make small popcorn balls. You can add bits of red and green jelly candies or little jelly beans if you want more color.

    • New to this gluten-free life
      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.   https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/gfr
    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
