  1. OOOhhh...I can SO relate. We found out that our 7 year old daughter has Celiac 2 weeks ago. Since then, I have been trying to come up with creative things to include in her lunch. SHe has rejected every single one and today I almost felt despair seeing that she had yet again not eaten her lunch. She comes home starving and crying. We used to buy her school lunches which she happily ate. I read a lot of suggestions as replies to your post and that felt helpful. So much of my despair comes from feeling a fear that I can't give her the nourishment that her body needs. I even had the thought today that perhaps we should go back to home schooling so that I can make sure that she eats...and that's crazy talk b/c she loves public school so much. I'm finding that this process is much more difficult emotionally than I had anticipated. I walked down the store aisles the other day crying looking at all of the things that she would never be able to eat. Also, the planet all of a sudden got really small and my dreams of us traveling around the world felt dashed...how are we possibly going to be able to travel to places other than mainstream, western cultures? I hope that this process smooths out. I suspect that it will and that I will find things that she likes to eat...but in the meantime, man this is a DRAG!
