#673232 Hershey's Chocolate

Posted by Leah's Mom on 05 February 2011 - 07:07 PM

They mix all the mix-ins with the same machine. If they have oreos or cookie dough as a mix-in, there could still be pieces of that left on the mixer arm or that metal top the put on the top of the cup.

Actually we were told by a McDonald's manager that there isn't cross-contamination issue . . . he said that big clear spoon with the hollow square end in your McFlurry fit's onto the mixing machine. Every McFurry has it's own stirer. We watched and that seemed to be the case. I would be more suspect of the Reeses Pieces. . . . Hershey has been very disapponting with there gluten-free disclosure.

#654535 First Holiday Season Being gluten-free

Posted by Leah's Mom on 18 November 2010 - 03:35 PM

The key is creativity at holiday meals . . . it doesn't necessarily have to be more costly. If you google "gluten free thanksgiving" you'll find tons recipes for the holidays. I personally like the following link:

http://www.ivillage....ipes/3-b-297755

There are 11 recipes for gluten-free side dishes including traditional favorites like stuffing, green bean casserole. Now that bisquick makes a gluten free mix, a homeade pie crust is easy and pumpkin and sugar is naturally gluten-free:) Homemade whipping cream would also be gluten free!

I hope you have a wonderfully memorable Holiday Season!

#651863 What To Do Please Need Your Help!

Posted by Leah's Mom on 08 November 2010 - 06:53 AM

First things first, you are Not Helpless in the matter. You are your child's best advocate. Since the biopsy is an ordeal . . .my suggestion is that since your household eating habits are already gluten free for the whole family, make sure she follows the same diet when away from home too(no cheating). Make sure you know her vitamins and meds are also gluten free. If her symptoms stop after a few months of being on a strict diet, you can assume she does have Celiac Disease or a gluten intolerance. I wish I had taken that advice 8 years ago when my daughter was three.

Best of Luck!
