In Topic: Accidental Gluten In Diet

We were aware of the Corn Pops being no longer gluten-free so, we switched to Malto Meal Corn Bursts by General Mills. They have been a favorite treat cereal for my kids. Now, I just heard that they can no longer be considered gluten free. I will call the company but for now has anybody else heard about this?

I have three kids, and now possibly all four, of my kids on the gluten-free diet. Needless to say the snack and lunch ideas postings are my some of my favorites. It can be hard to keep foods interesting and fun, especially when other kids get good school lunches or snacks at school or outings. I have found that they really enjoy gorp-type mixtures. I will vary the mix with M&M's, Reeses Pieces, gluten-free pretzels, raisins, peanuts, gluten-free cereals, popcorn, mini marshmallows, etc. I mix a big tub of it and then dish it out as needed. Of course, I have to remove the chokies for my 2 year old.

In Topic: Lunch Ideas

one of my kids favorite lunch items is cheesey Chebe balls. i make the dough in advance and cook them in the morning. i also pack gluten-free spaghetti sauce in the little reusable plastic containers for dipping into. they love these, but only if cooked that morning, otherwise they get rubbery. you can also add pepperoni to the balls or wrap the dough around a small piece of string cheese before baking. my 9 yr. old is concerned about what the other kids will say about her food and this passes the test. my younger kids will eat the same things over and over again if i make them more interesting like cheese or meat cut outs from small cookie cutters on gluten-free crackers. i always try to pack a special dessert so the kids look forward to their lunch instead of feeling like they are missing out. Pamela's makes the best cookies, esp. choc. chip!

In Topic: Conflicting Diagnoses?

It's been a while since I posted my first question. I just wanted to update. We did go through with the biopsy on the advise of my family doc and my son was positive for celiac disease. In the meantime, a letter came from the ped. gastroenterologist stating that my son did not have celiac disease. We decided to test my 4 year old son and his IgG was at almost the same level as my first son. What concerns me is that he had very few symptoms other than being very emotionally sensitive and slight and occasional constipation. How many other kids are out there falling through the cracks? oh yeah, another symptom that set off little alarms in my head were large cavities even though we are diligent about oral hygeine. Aren't tooth enamel deficits a symptom of celiac disease? Now we are having trouble convincing family members with symptoms to believe that they should be tested. We have no family history of the disease that anybody can recall. We are checking into the possibility of genetic testing to see where this could have come from -- this might help convince other family members.
