  1. Gluten Free Hairspray

    I honestly don't know if hairspray contains gluten because I don't use hairspray, however, I use gluten free everything at my house and like the Live Clean line. All of their products are gluten free. Unfortunately if you are in the U.S. I'm not sure if they are available there as I am in Canada. Here's their website perhaps you could contact them. They do make a gluten free hair spray, among other things. http://www.live-clean.com/
  2. Sorry for trying to help. I'm new to the board today and I wasn't aware of the great Canadian Hot Dog Discussion of 2011.
  3. My 17 month old has Celiac disease as do I. She eats Nature's Path products - Whole O's and Crispy Rice http://www.naturespath.com/ For Grains with meals she eats Quinoa, and white and brown rice. She also occasionally eats Kamut in puff form. My daughter is also allergic to milk and eggs which caused a lot of stomach upset for her. She currently drinks goat milk which she seems to digest much better. Did you check the ingredients on the hot dog?! I have searched high and low for gluten free hot dogs! They almost always contain gluten in one form or another.
  4. My Son's Sad Look Upon His Face

    I have Celiac disease and my 17 mth old daughter also has Celiac disease. I knew that I had Celiac disease going into the pregnancy and I wouldn't change anything. Celiac disease is an inconvenience but it's not horrible enough that I would avoid having children because of it! I eat at McDonald's and Wendy's. I order Double Cheese burger with no bun and french fries. Wendy's actually has a gluten free menu as well. I'm not sure if you're American or Canadian but we're personally in Canada and I know the U.S. fries are not safe at McDonald's. I was diagnosed at 27 years old, shortly after my wedding. I'm not saying it's easy but it's something that is in my opinion very manageable. If you and your son happen to live in the states you should know that Burger King USA offers a Gluten Free Menu: http://www.bk.com/cms/en/us/cms_out/digital_assets/files/pages/GlutenFree.pdf Otherwise you could take a read of the Canadian ingredients and see if you can order a burger there: http://en.burgerking.ca/cms/en/us/cms_out/digital_assets/files/pages/IngredientsAndAllergens.pdf From a quick glance it looks like they may have some options!
