In Topic: What Do You Do For School Lunches?

17 July 2014 - 07:44 AM

We do a lot of wrap sandwiches.  The Toufayan gluten free wraps are awesome with turkey, provolone, bacon and a little ranch dressing.  I also do sandwiches on canyon bakehouse bread, cheese sticks w/ salami and chips or crackers.  I usually put a fruit of some kind plus a piece of chocolate or a handful of M&Ms.  We order a bunch of nuts and dried fruits from nuts dot com and make a trail mix as we're trying to increase my daughter's fat/calorie intake.

Are you using a toothpaste without SLR?  I started using one when I suffered from canker sores before my diagnosis based on a recommendation from a dentist.  It helped some so I still use it (I believe Pronamel is what I use).  I only get them occasionally now and they are far less severe!

Cruises are great for gluten free!  There are even some that leave from NYC and Baltimore.  I've cruised 2x since my diagnosis and my daughter has cruised 1x since diagnosis.  She's ready to go back - she felt rather special with all the extra attention and desserts made just for her!

I use Pamela's baking mix which contains almond flour but I haven't ventured into any recipes from scratch.  May look into it and do some trial and error during the holidays.

In Topic: Probiotics? Other Supplements For Kids?

She very well could be getting cross-contaminated at the lunch table although she purposely requests no nuts in her lunch so she can eat at the less crowded peanut-free table.  We did a 504 plan for her which I could update to have her sit separately although that's a tough call based on the social aspect of elementary school. 


I'm certain she's not experimenting due to peer pressure (not that type of kid at all).  I do likely need to explore dairy or other intolerances more... hence that food log that I've been talking of starting but haven't yet done.  I've seen apps for that, anyone use one?  Maybe I'll ask that on one of the general boards. 


Thanks for your input!
