Nicole will be starting pre-k in a few weeks. Does anyone have any ideas about which snacks like for school are gluten free that you can purchase in the store. Maybe a list so I can give her teacher I know about the ingredients I mean like a list of snack already made would be great. Because the teacher does the snack shopping. Also there is 1 other child in her class that is partial gluten free,So that helps a bit. Also there are no other children in the school that have celiac. How bizarre.

Thanks

Celina

I also just got some banana chips from Wild Oats that Ryan seems to like well. Fruit cups (you can get those at any grocery store), rice or corn cakes (double-check for glutens), fruit (like the pp said), baby carrots, celery.

Also allergic to soy despite allergist denying. Recurrent diarrhea/chronic soft stools undiagnosed until 9/19/06 - GI doctor said recurrent diarrhea not a problem. Tested through EnteroLabs:

I should add so I don't sound like the worlds worst mother. The doc and dietician said to feed her junk as well as good food to get her weight up...I SWEAR!!!!!

Rice crackers, many grocery store chains carry them

Kraft string cheese

Jell-O brand pudding cups

Fruit cups

Raisins

Dried Fruits

Pop Secret Popcorn

Fresh fruits

Fresh vegetables

Dora stars cereal

Hormel pepperoni and cracker barrel cheese

Perhaps she would allow you and the other family to contribute some specialty foods for all of the children like gluten free pretzels, gluten free crackers, etc...

If she can do her shopping at Wal-mart, their GV brand labels gluten free. It would make the whole process a lot easier for her.
