Eating Out

Recommended Posts

I took my son out for breakfast Thursday AND Friday like a fool. He only had eggs and fruit. He's had pasty poop ever since. I feel like such a sh*t. He was doing so great with only an accident here and there in 5 weeks. I feel like I should have really known much better.

I wanted to do the same thing but stopped myself and only went to places where there was a gluten-free menu. And still we could of had issues. It is ok! You are just fine!

Thanks for the encouragement. I went out last night and gluten challenged myself and have been sick all day so I think I really need to be checked out further. If not by my doctor then maybe by enterolab. I may ask him to do the gene testing to see if I carry it at the very least. Wednesday I'm taking the kids to the Mystic Acquarium and hoping to pack enough food for the day. Going to be a bit overwhelming for one 6 hour trip. Not sure what to pack for lunch. Sometimes I think I only feed him snacks for lunch if we are out. Geesh. What a lousy mom. Kidding. I think. Thanks again.

It is tough! Especailly with Belle cause she is dairy free as well. I pack PB&J sandwiches, fruits and veggies, apple sauce, fruit leathers and chips, plus some gluten-free snacks. Things like that. Have you had any testing done for yourself? My blood tests were neg but I had so many symptoms so I just went gluten-free and I feel sooooo much better! I will never touch gluten on purpose again! I got glutened this week and was sick for 3 days. It was awful! I hope you the trip goes well and have fun!

When my 2 year old was new to the diet, I took her out to eat, I made sure everything on her plate was gluten free, real eggs, fresh fruit, cottage cheese........I forgot to check her chocolate milk though, she was halfway through the second glass when my husband picked up the little carton to look at it, and in bold letters it said MALT, I felt so bad :(

It can be soooo hard to have a young one that has food problems. Both my sons have food allergies, and my oldest, I believe, got my celiac disease as well. It makes me so sad that we cannot take him to restuarants, particularly becuase he has gone to them in the past. However I know that to truly manage his illness we simply cannot take him out to eat. Is that a huge burden on us to prepare EVERYTHING he eats??? YES IT IS! But, when I see him smiling, happy, healthy, and not sick it is worth every bit of effort I must put forth.

Hang in there, and give up on the restaurants too much cross contamination issues out there...and if they just make you feel bad and make your son sick, why bother, and why waste your money???
