Recommended Posts

We started Belle on her gluten-free diet on saturday night. She has been doing really good and understanding of the diet. Amazed me since she is only 3! So this am I went out to clean the snow off of the car. I came in and she informed me that she had eaten 3 dog biscuts!! The first ingredient is wheat! I can't believe my little stinker! I just hope this doesn't set us back too much!

Oh my! It's funny what little kiddos will put in their mouths...but I really hope she doesn't get too sick from them!

However, if she remembers she got sick because of something she wasn't suppossed to eat, that could prevent this happenning again. I hope she stays well!

I cleaned out a very low shelf that had had pots and pans in it when my son went gluten free. It had all of his finger foods *he was three, as well*. I made a big deal about how these were HIS foods and if he wanted a snack, he could go get one himself. I marked his name on all of the containers as a back-up of what exactly was his. Ultimately, I ended up purchasing a large pantry cabinet from Ikea and deemed that his food closet. All his food continued to be marked with his name... as a back-up form of identification for his peace of mind *as well as mine*. It worked wonderfully. He never ate anything that wasn't his because he felt so proud of having his own stuff in it's own spot.

For some reason 3 year olds love dog food. My son would eat relatively little people food but would clean out the dogs bowl every chance he got.

Yep, my daughter went after the dog food too. Wheat withdrawals, or possible pica could have been a reason she was too young to tell me at the time why she was eating it.

Both of my kids like to eat dog/cat food. what is it with that?? I can't keep the baby away from it! He also barely eats any table food, but goes straight for the dog dish. go figure.

I hope your little one feels well!

I recall tasting liver snaps once. One of the colors was better than the rest, though I don't remember which one :)

I heard about a kid who was exchanging his food with that of the dog. His parents had no idea, until the DOG kept getting sick!

Now, if you child starts drinking from the toilet...

Well we had only been on the diet since saturday so I am not sure how much I would see. But she sure is crabby this afternoon! Not herself at all! Just can't wait to see if gluten-free helps her!
