#722986 Making Safe Gluten Free List For Preschool

Posted by climbmtwhitney on 15 August 2011 - 09:18 AM

Hi Everyone. My daughter is getting ready to start preschool and I am trying to put together a list of gluten free items and ingredients. Does anyone have any on here that are current? I am new to this because this is the first time she is going to school. I am a little nervous about it because we do pretty good at home and am worried that she will have problems when she goes to school. Any advice anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. I am also trying to compose a letter to other parents asking them to inform when they are planning on bringing birthday treats in so I can make something that my daughter could have. This is just frustrating because I am afraid I am forgetting something. Also we live in the south and people do not know what gluten is here and they don't understand Celiac disease either.I know some of you have been going through with school packs for years. Please help! :-)


Hi.

As far as the birthday treats.....we've found it easier to keep a gluten-free goody jar at school to cover the birthday/teacher/party treats. There will always be the parent who forgets to tell the teacher they're bringing a treat or the teacher who forgets to tell the parent. It makes it easier for all.

I can't help much on the gluten-free list, but I do know that Play Doh and some finger paints do have gluten. Also, be sure the teacher understands that your little one can't string dry pasta or cereal. One of my kids came home with a fruit loop necklace. :o

#652494 Got Ideas For Breakfast Protien

Posted by climbmtwhitney on 10 November 2010 - 06:20 PM

My breakfast protien is pretty limited and I really feel better if I start the day with a hefty dose of protien. I need some new ideas.

No Casin, No Eggs, No nuts. Right now, I'm having soy yogurt or a few slices of lunch meat. I'm pretty sick of them.


Hi.

We like Wellshire Farms turkey bacon and breakfast slices (like large slices Canadian bacon). We get them at Whole Foods. We also like Jones Dairy Farm mild sausage links. Don't let the "dairy" in the name throw you, they're casein free. We buy them at Raley's. And, we like Applegate Farms chicken & apple sausage. Applegate makes a bunch of other flavors too. We can find these at almost any store.

#472732 I Love Candy Corn

Hi.

Jelly Belly candy corn is supposed to be gluten free too. Probably a bit pricey though.

I, too, am a candy corn fiend. Mmmmm! :P
