Dumb Questions!

I'd love some input!

Is it safe for a 4 y/o to do a painting craft with an empty Pringles can?

What do you think of hay rides for young kids? Too risky because of CC or just good fun if you wash up afterward?

Thanks!

Gosh, I'd be nervous about the Pringles can. They're hard to clean well. Maybe you could use a cardboard tube from wrapping paper or get one at a craft store instead?

Hay rides - I guess it really depends if it is wheat hay. I know I've seen some other parents on here say their child got sick from a hay ride. Is there a way you can call and find out what type of grass the hay is made from? A farmer should know if it's their own hay, but places that buy baled hay probably wouldn't have a clue.

Pringles can--if I had personally scrubbed it out with soap and water a few times, then I'd be OK with it, what about a Lays Stax can?

Hay rides--my dd was one of those who got very sick from a hay ride. I always ask the farms before hand now so I can prep the kids if need be before we get there-less disappointment and fits later.

I'm a farmers daughter and my father NEVER grew wheat, so please ask. We gres Alfalfa, and all hay was made with that. A dairy farm may not have any wheat at all growing there, but a crop farm is totally different story.

I agree, call ahead. In my area, and in my experience, it's been almost all wheat. Make sure if they tell you "it's just straw" you ask "what kind of straw" The last guy I talked to took a bit to get him to understand the correlation.

We just did a hay ride last weekend. Both kids seem to be fine however the hay was alfalfa not wheat. The farmer there told me that typically if they say "straw" it is wheat. He told me that straw is the bottom of the wheat. Just thought I would pass that along. All of the people we spoke with were so nice about our questions. The first two didn't know so the found the man who owned and operated the farm. He answered all of our questions and the kids have been fine. Good luck and happy hay rides!

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.

    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
