Do I need to have seperate plates and silverware?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

i am new and trying to figure this all out. Do I need to have seperate dishes and silverware? Is it ok to wash all dishes together  in the dishwasher?

i have a 5 and 3 year old. I am touching foods with gluten breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.  I feel like I am washing my hands a hundred times a day. I am trying to wipe them down after they eat, but as any of you with children know this does not always happen before their little hands end up all over me or on my face. If they touch my shirt, and the I touch it later could that lead to cross contamination?

 

all feedback welcome.

thanks,

christina

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, you can get glutened by your little ones.   You might consider reducing the amount of gluten in your house.  Maybe even eliminating it all together.  But first, you should get your kids tested even if they are symptom free!  The University of Chicago's celiac website can explain this.  

Your dishwasher should remove all traces of gluten.  Read up about replacing wooden spoons, plasticware, scratched non-stick pans, and get a dedicated toaster.  Our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" is a great place to start.
