Recommended Posts

Okay ... My toddler has made much progress since last year .. he is wheat intolerant / not positive for Celiac.

We are making out first long distance trip .. ( making the trip and possibly having to get him food out is the problem..... I cant pull along side the road and scramble some eggs... ) Help What can he eat... I read about wendys french fries... But besides taking some food onthe plane ... I am flying southwest... What can he eat that i dont have to worry about being in the car with a vomiter. I will have gluten free bread and trix and corn puffs .. but that is only going to last for a while.. I have 6 hours to entertain him... Help ... wendys hamburgers with out the bun I heard is fine .. but help I cant find any of the old posts.... Help ... help help . thanks

How about some Lara bars? I tried those and they are nice (I shouldn't really eat them, as they are high in salicylates, but I needed something). Also, does he like things like carrot and celery sticks? Those keep for quite a while in Ziplock bags.

Wendy's chili and Frosties are gluten-free. Be sure to check whether they have a dedicated fryer before ordering the fries.

Chick-fil-a's grilled chicken salad (my kids like salad, don't know if yours does) and waffle fries are gluten-free.

Hardee's has "low carb" burgers wrapped in lettuce leafs. You wouldn't believe how happy my 13 year old was to be able to order a burger at a fast-food place!

Buffalo Wild Wings -- except for the Asian and Teriyaki, the sauces are gluten-free, but you HAVE to get them ON THE SIDE. They mix the breaded chicken in the same bowls.

Bumblebars are good.

What about gluten-free cookies?

Envirokids bars.

Peanut butter and crackers.

You should really bring a cooler filled with foods he normally eats. I might be misunderstanding but do you have a 6 hour drive after the flight? If there are grocery or health food stores along the way, it would be safer to stop at those rather than fast food places. That way you can get new ice (or bags of frozen fruit) to keep your cooler cold as well. I'd list snack ideas but I'm sure most of the snacks he normally eats can be brought along on the trip :)

No the 6 hours is leaving and waiting to get on the plane. Yeah I think its excessive but you have to check in and I have a 1 1/2 hour drive to get there. so there is not a opportunity of stopping or running out to get something from whole foods while waiting for my plane..see my problem...

So snacks trix cereal .... corn puffs .. gerber wheels ...

We ordered scrambled eggs at a resturaunt ... that worked no vomiting... But I will write down the places.... See my baby is the only one suffering. NO ONE else is ,, so that is a problem when we are all eating our food ... what is he supposed to do . He is also a picky eater... I have introduced energy breads he likes them .. but only with cheese on them ... ???????? I have tried everything... He knows some thing is up with food .... He just doesn not know what. ... He is really smart. But that is my problem .

Just bring plenty of cereal and gerber wheels and Energ bread with cheese to the airport and hopefully everything will go well. I know it's hard to travel with a toddler, but bringing 6 hours worth of food into an airport is easy...I'm sure you'll be fine :)
