  1. My youngest son is four and has been gluten-free for 1 1/2 years since diagnosed with celiac disease. It is awesome to see him so healthy again! Breakfast: Black Label bacon fried eggs Snack: potato chips Betty Crocker fruit snacks Lunch: Gerber Graduates Meat Sticks (similar to Vienna sausages and easy to heat up in microwave when in a hurry to get to birthday party) sliced Granny Smith apple Yoplait custard style yogurt Snack at friend's birthday party at bowling alley: gluten-free cupcake stored in freezer for birthday parties (order from Whole Foods Gluten-Free Bakehouse: a dozen vanilla, a dozen chocolate and store them in my freezer) See http://www.wholefoods.com/company/pr_10-04-04.html homemade icing (butter, confectioner's sugar, vanilla, blue food coloing) blue-colored sugar sprinkles Dinner at cafeteria: hamburger patty cut up dipped in Heinz ketchup strawberry jello Bedtime Snack: grapes Okay, not our healthiest day,but we were pretty busy. Also, an easy, unbelievably deliscious dinner that all four of my sons, my husband, and I love: Texmati rice (tastes like corn) topped with Monterey Jack shredded cheese heated up rinsed canned black beans gluten-free salsa (and sour cream for those who can have gluten)
  2. I feel so bad. Since December 1, I have been letting my four sons eat their traditional chocolate advent calendars. My four-year-old son with celiac disease has had diarrhea ad tummy aches for over a week. He looks so skinny. I have been racking my brain as to what's been making him sick. I just checked the ingredients on the advent calendar and found the culprit. Whoops! We'll let him have a cholate kiss every day until Christmas instead.
