Maybe there are some family camps! I just found this one googling around: http://njycamps.org/...ly_weekend.html


In Topic: Gluten Free Camp For Kids! (Texas)

22 July 2013 - 05:54 AM

My daughter went to Camp Weakaneatit in June and had a blast. And it was such a relief to not worry about what she was eating all week (for both of us). I highly recommend this camp or any that you can make it to - we drove from Virginia to Georgia and it looks like this will be an annual trip!

 

My daughter wasn't ready for camp this year, but we are talking it up for next year. She wants her sister to come, so I'm glad that they take siblings. Did she love it? What were the highlights?


In Topic: Lunches

22 July 2013 - 05:50 AM

I know that there are lots of great ideas on the other links, but here are a few from our house. My daughter loves some of the GoPicnic gluten free lunches -- they come in little boxes about 350 calories, mostly organic / preservative free, really healthy options. Of course her faves are the ones that are more junk-foody. The one called Turkey Stick Crunch is her favorite. It comes with a turkey jerky stick, bbq popchips, a fruit leather strip, a seed & nut mix, and a small chocolate. They're high-priced, so we just keep them on hand for food emergencies. I leave one in my office, one in the van, and some in the house, but they're not for everyday.

 

For every day lunches, we do ham & cheese on toothpicks (rolled up), a couple of pieces of fruit, some carrots, a yogurt, and a drink. Sometimes a bag of chips. My daughter never has liked bread, so she usually passes on the gluten free breads, but occasionally she wants to take a grilled nutella sandwich. Sounds strange, but it's delicious. Carrot sticks, celery sticks, and anything else that can be chopped small and arranged cutely in a lunch box are great. I overpack her lunch because she's always starving after school and I want her to have some options left to nibble on before we get home.


In Topic: Dining Out Success!

I feel like we keep getting different information on Red Robin. Maybe it depends on which restaurant? I haven't dared yet..

I'm sure it varies from location to location. I've walked out of restaurants when I felt that they wouldn't be able to handle the food to my satisfaction. We went in at an off-peak time and when the host asked if he could help us, I told him that I wasn't sure and that I had some questions about their gluten free menu and how they handle gluten free food. He pulled out the menu, went through the procedures, told me that the bun was pre-made and pre-wrapped in plastic and that they open them as needed. I don't know that they would have taken the time or paid such close attention if it was noon on Saturday or some other busy time.


In Topic: Mental Health?

Okay, well, the visit with the doctor was okay, but I didn't feel like I could speak freely in front of my daughter, so now I'm waiting on a call back. The good, no GREAT news is that now at 6 months gluten free, all her serology results are back in the normal range!! Her TTG was ridiculously high in December, and now it's 3!! that's right, three! Whew, I'm glad all of this gluten-free living is working. I was so afraid of bad results.
 
I signed up for a webinar (I'll try to paste it below) on supporting kids living with chronic food allergies. I know it's not a food allergy, but I hope to glean something good from it. Meanwhile, we are researching child psychologists and trying to get recommendations in the region. We need to find somebody soon that we can start meeting with. At the very least, we need help with communication.
