Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.

Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.

So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!

My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

A lot of companies have good lists on their websites. Kettle chips has some gluten-free, I am not sure if all of the flavors are. Jello is gluten-free, Frito-lay has lists on their website. Some Hormel products are labeled gluten-free. We like Blue Diamond Nut Thins, Fruit Roll Ups and freeze dried apples, I find those at wal-mart in the dried fruit section.

This website is good too.

Tell us some things that she likes and we can come up with some more ideas.

Milky Way DARK are one of my favorites. The regular are not safe. I got 2 this afternoon, one for today and one for tomorrow. I have to admit I ate them both in one sitting. :ph34r:

Snacks made by major manufacturers that you can find Gluten Free at a regular grocer (but you always have to check): popcorn, applesauce, fruit cups, potato chips - (I know Lay's Barbecue and Pringles are not okay as of my last visit; we generally eat Cape Cod and Kettle Chips), tortilla chips (Multigrain are most definitely problematic), Fruit Roll ups, Fritos, Cheetos (I'm almost sure this one is okay), Potato Sticks, certain yogurt, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, jello, nuts, frozen fruit bars, marshmellows and rice cakes come to mind. However, you must check the labels as it really varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and product to product. Snyder's came out with a gluten free pretzel that you can get at your regular grocer that are very good. There are a couple of cereals by General Mills that are Gluten Free I believe they are the Rice Chex varieties and they are marked on the front of the box. Betty Crocker has a number of gluten free cake mixes sold in most grocers and Bisquick has a gluten free pancake mix. There is a new nut cracker I think by Blue Diamond that is gluten Free. Also, a bunch of the Asian Rice Crackers are gluten free. Van's makes a gluten free frozen waffle although my family does not like them so we make our own and freeze for use later. All these items I have found in my local grocer, Walmart or Target. At Target this week I noticed they sold Cherrybrook gluten free mixes. At my local Walmart they sell Schar Gluten Free Pasta and some other smaller brand gluten free items.

I would like to eat one of those, (they sound yummy :) ) but doesn't the soy lecithin bother you?

I am not sure. I know I have a problem with soy and I noticed raven does too..that's why I wondered if the soy lecithin--ALWAYS in chocolate candy bars--was a problem....?

I'm okay with the lecithin, the oil, flour or protein are a different story. Some of us can tolerate the lecithin but some of us can't. I am very thankful that I am one who can.
