newly diagnosed and looking for help

Recommended Posts

My 5 year old was just diagnosed this summer with celiacs.  We are trying very hard to remove all gluten in hopes that the hair loss she is experiencing will be reversed.  She is a very picky eater and is not happy about this.  Do celiac parents allow their child to eat the following:

Doritos (nacho cheese)

Trader Joes hash browns

snow cones from Mr. Softee (packaged)

 

These are items that I have researched and have been confused by the information I have seen online.

Thank you for your help.

Nacho cheese Doritos are my one processed food I allow myself as a treat. I check the label each time I get them though, always amazed I can eat them. But I couldn't have any dairy for nearly a year after going gluten-free. Made me sick. But thankfully afterwards it was ok. This is similar to many people on the board.

i do not know anything about the other 2 foods mentioned, sorry.

usually as a precaution and to speed healing, we recommend going about a year with zero processed foods and no eating out. Just eating whole, simple foods. Very healthy too!

BeanFields, and Beanitos makes a certified gluten free, corn free, version, and the beanfields one is vegan being dairy free. I can give you links where to get them online if you wish. I personally use Protes which are a carb and dairy free version but the flavor is very weak in them and the texture is VERY toasted and a acquired taste. You can find most of these on LuckyVitamin.com.

Doritos in Canada have gluten free on the packaging. There are definitely a staple in our house with 4 kids 13-21.  Unfortunately, my daughter who is the one with Celiac has never liked them, so it is in the house as an extra gluten-free food for her brothers to enjoy.  I am only six weeks into the diet and have crossed the border to the US to find gluten-free products we don't have here in Canada.  Don't know if you live close to the border, but you could definitely have our Doritos.
