So when I asked our GS troop leader if we could change the brand type of the a few of the foods for their campout to make it safer and less confusing for the leaders and helpers this is the response:

************************************************************

It's actually easier for me if your girl and the other two girls have their own food items sent in by mom. That way someone who's not aware of the issue didn't get the wrong item, and it slips past us. We can be confident that she and the other girls will have safe foods. We will also make it as seamless as possible so the other girls in the troop have no idea, just like last year.( last year I attended and did everything for my girl this year I cannot attend)

You should provide items for your girl that will not be safe from the general supply (breads etc) Please also supply her own labelled hotdog/s'more stick. Anything that you send to cook with for them should be labelled, and we will keep it separate and just for your girl.

*************************************************************

The sad part of this very politically correct response is (not that she will even hear me out on this) is that by changing the brands it makes it easier and more "seamless" for them to deal with. The fact that we have to be peanut free for that allergen girl says it all...

I just wish people would open the dialogue so I can explain how much easier it is to change a brand than to have separate items. BTW we are talking hot dogs , snacks (pretzels and popcorn) and yogurt.

Not sure why you need to change the hot dogs, popcorn and yogurt. In the US, there are very few, if any, that contain gluten.

It might be easier for you to just tell your daughter to only eat what you send. That way she or someone who doesn't understand won't have to decide.

But I see your point. It would be easier to say " Honey, you can eat anything but the pretzels, graham crackers and hot dog buns". That works if no mom decides it would be fun to add a food item at the last minute.

I *always* sent my son's food and drinks for him, I never asked anyone to change anything for him. By sending what I know is safe for him, I had NO worries that he would be fed something that would harm him.

There are 16 kids with bag lunches and 2 full meals "THE KIDS" must prepare , serve and cleanup afterwards. So the less gluten the better was all I was going for.

My main point being, that some people won't even open dialogue to discuss it. That's sad !
