More Snack Questions

Recommended Posts

My 5 year old was just diagnosed. He is in Pre-K. His school serves ceral and crackers during snack time. They said they will serve all the kids in his class the same thing if I just tell them what to serve.

Does anyone have any recommendations for cerals that are just regular brands from the ceral isle (not organic) that are gluten free?

Dora the Explorer's cereal is supposed to be gluten free -- I think it's Dora's Stars or something like that. It's cinnamon flavored.

Perky-O's are good, although $$, and they are gluten free. (gluten-free version of cheerios - frosted, apple cinnamon varieties available)

maybe veggies and fruits? raisins? trail mixes with gluten-free ingredients?

It's nice that they are willing to accommodate. I'm sure lots of moms on this site will have plenty of suggestions.

Vampella--I can relate. We are from Canada too, and the mainstream foods that are gluten free here are definitely more limited. As for cereal that we can buy right off the shelf (not from a health food store), the only one that we have found is from the Real Canadian Superstore. It is President's Choice Crunchy Corn. It is in their "Organics" line, but not at the organic price. We buy a box of them for between $2.99-$3.29. They are like Corn Pops and all of my kids love them.

I send in all of my daughter's snacks to her preschool. I do not do it so the class can all have her snack for fear that another kid would say, "Eww, this is gross." After reading "Kids With Celiac Disease" by Donna Korn, I have always stuck to this method. At her birthday parties, I have had some food for everyone - Pirate's Booty, Tings (all by Robert's Gourmet) or Soy & Flaxseed chips from Trader Joes, fruits. But I had a regular cake for all the other kids and a special cake for her (her own Cinderella which was a HUGE hit!!!). I also had regular dinner for everyone else and her food for her. I have been very lucky that all of her little buddies have been very supportive and are used to hearing that other kids have eating restrictions. Her teachers are AMAZING and always let me know when someting is coming up so I can send in substitutes for her and they always have me read ALL labels. Her school has purchased gluten free play-doh for the class.

Good luck!
