Eating Out In Washington Dc - Need Suggestions

11 March 2015 - 05:16 AM

Bringing the kids for a visit on spring break in April.  Last time we were there, no one was diagnosed.  This time 2 of the 4 of us are gluten free.  We plan on getting a hotel with a kitchenette so we can cook breakfast and pack a lunch, but we'd like to eat out a couple of times too.


However, the thought of being sick while traveling, or having symptoms on the train ride back horrifies me.  My 10 year old is very sensitive so we need places that don't just offer gluten-free options, but really know and understand cross-contamination, etc.


Options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, even a bakery for a treat would be great.

Great Lunchbox For School/camp To Help Protect Against Cross-Contamination

28 June 2014 - 05:36 AM

We've been using a "wrap-n-mat" in my son's lunchbox for a couple of years and that worked well to provide him with a clean surface for his lunch while at school (can't count on the tables being clean since they are just wiped down with a damp rag between classes).  But half-way through third grade, my son didn't want to use them anymore.  Taking the extra step made him feel different than the other kids and he just likes to blend in.


This lunchbox (Solvetta Flatbox) is awesome and solves our problem.  It is also great for summer camp and picnics.  The sides zip down to create a placemat.  It is plenty big enough for a kid and looks cool.  All his friends want one. 


Just toss it in the washing machine to clean it.


Now he has a clean surface to eat on and doesn't feel weird or different.


Just thought I'd share in case anyone else was dealing with this same issue.
