My daughter was diagnosed 1 year ago and has been gluten-free ever since. We are 100% gluten-free at home and her bloodwork all looks great so I'm fairly certain she is not getting gluten in her diet. The problem is she is still not gaining weight. She dropped off the chart for weight and BMI. We had a follow-up yesterday and her doctor told her to start to high fat/high calorie shake supplements a day. She gave us some pediasures as samples as well as a list of shakes to make at home w/ added protein and fat. Pediasure was not a hit with the first try but I blended it with some frozen berries and that was slightly better. Does anyone have experience in helping a celiac child gain some weight? What worked? She eats fairly balanced but she's never had a large appetite so I know this is going to be a struggle. She seems motivated to try and eat more. Funny how when mom and dad harp on her for months to eat more it doesn't register but now that the doctor told her she's onboard so I'd love some more tips on what she can eat as I suspect shakes are going to get old really quick with her.
