in need of hug!! started gluten free today for my 2 yr old who seems to understand and is being very brave..i however am having a tough time. we are going to have her all natural foods as much as possible, but we were looking for treats to keep at pre school for unannounced b'days, it ws hard enough with her anaphylactic milk and egg allergies, now this

i know it'll get easier as it did with her allergies and as i find recipes that are easy to adapt, but today has just been horrible

but on the plus side only one tantrum, no biting her sister and a generally much mre plesantkid

Oh, your poor wee one -- milk and egg allergies and celiac to boot :( Yes, it is going to be a tough regime to get adjusted to (and get her adjusted to). Definitely natural foods is the way to go, but I wouldn't have a clue about treats that can be kept on hand. Maybe something like Larabars (mainly nuts and dates) would work, although they are large for a wee one. Here are your {{{{{{hugs}}}}} as you go through the adaptation process of her diet. Hang in there -- it will, as you say, get easier as you adjust to it. :)

It will get better!

For treats at school check out products by a company called "Enjoy Life". All of their products are free of the 8 major allergens and gluten. So you can send them even if your school is nut free. http://www.enjoylifefoods.com/

Have you subscribed to "Living Without"? If not, I think you'll find it really helpful. Good luck to you. Is she allergic to egg yolk or white? The good thing is that most children grow out of egg allergies from what I've read.

I tried to hook you up with the peanut butter cookie recipe that just uses 1 cup PB, 1 cup sugar and 1 egg, but didn't see it with any egg substitues. It might be worth a whirl. Sending you hugs, good luck to you and your little one!

It will get better!

We are dairy, egg, soy, tree nut, peanut, palm/coconut and banana free because of ana food allergies and Celiac. It is possible! You can do this Mama!

Enjoy Life is awesome to start with! Also , we got DS one of these for school and those unannounced treat things that come up at school:

Indie Candy Co.

Call and talk to them and they'll put together a great treat bucket to keep at school ;)

Also, I baked up and frosted some allergy free cupcakes and asked if I could keep them in a tupperware in the staff lounge freezer. Is there a fridge/freezer at your daughter's preschool? Then the teacher just gets a cupcake for my son whenever there is a party.

Hugs, Mama!

We have been very happy with Orgran products. According to their site,

All Orgran products are Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg free, Yeast Free, GMO Free and Vegan

Orgran has a great big bag of little bags of cookies that we keep at school for our kids. I have a small Tupperware box that we keep in their classrooms that has a variety of safe stuff - candy, cookies, dried fruits, drinks (nut milks and juices).

Good luck in this transition period, and it does get easier! We are gluten, dairy, soy free here. :)

A fun treat can consist of a sliced banana with honey drizzled on top....or a frozen, chocolate-covered banana. Or frozen fruit bars that you've made yourself.
