In Topic: Watch Out For This Halloween Candy

Thanks for the post! You've saved me some internet digging time - for both the twists as well as the Reese's cups. After the 3 kids got home the other night I began sorting and automatically just threw all the twists into a "gluten" box since I assumed they were like twizzlers......I hope the troops overseas enjoy them ;-).

Kinda random question...
But are KIX gluten-free?!

They were my favorite cereal growing up and I haven't had any in over a year (since going gluten-free) and it would totally make my week if they were....

I read on another thread that while Kix are gluten-free ingredients, Gen Mills isn't stepping up to advertise or have them quoted as saying they are safe since they aren't guaranteeing the manufacturing facilities. I've been giving them to my 3yo and she's been fine with the Kix.

Thank you for posting this list! I thought we had our bases covered at pre-school but after my 3yo had 2 "abnormal" bm's after art class today, I'm questioning if she was glutened. So although I will specifically look at the bottles of paint they used (tempura or finger), I can also give them this more robust list of items to use as a reference. Good stuff!

Interesting. My two sons are young (3 and 5). They were doing great the first 6 months on the diet and now we're struggling to see why their symptoms are returning when nothing new has been added. They never tell me if they're hurting (they never did pre-diagnosis either) so I can only go off bathroom antics and behavior problems. I did take away their rice milk and while it seems to have helped, they still seem not quite right. Very frustrating! So, what do you do for breakfast? My 5 year old is a cereal junkie. I limit him to one bowl a day because it's so darn expensive.

When my 3yo was diagnosed, my husband ran out and bought all the super expensive organic gluten-free cereals. *I* buy her chex and kix and of course the Wegmans fruity pebbles. There are a few other options I've noticed on the regular cereal shelf, but since I haven't purchased them yet I can't recall. Chex does also make chocolate chex which is a GREAT snack!

In Topic: Thanksgiving Out Of Town

My husband and son might be going to NY for Thanksgiving to visit G-ma because she is on her third time with cancer. Everyone up there is glutified, so, how am I going to make sure he eats safely? Also, I am pretty sure they will be flying. I know my husband will have to do some shopping when they arrive. There is Wegmans close by so that will help alot. I know he can handle the basics, canned green beans and the like, but what about turkey and dessert? I think I might have an anxiety attack!

At least there's a Wegmans! That is my savior here in VA and I can find ANYTHING I need there. Have your husband shop and stock up on replacement items if he can't influence the food preparation...........i.e. no flour in the turkey gravy, no stuffing into the turkey but prepared on the side. Have your husband get some Hillshire Farms turkey from the refrig. section (I know their ham is gluten-free) and pick up cupcakes/brownies/cookies from the frozen section in the Natural Foods part of Wegmans (that's where the AISLE of gluten-free foods in our store is). Go to the Wegmans website and pull down their gluten-free food item list to highlight what to shop for. They only list their brand names that are gluten-free but you should still be able to identify 95% of what you need and then go to the gluten-free aisle.
