  1. My 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with celiac in September of 2012. An although I NEVER rely on someone else to care for or about her disease at times your kids can't help but be in the care of others. I am always very upfront and firm on the fact that she can't have that. I always always pack snacks to take with me when she is going anywhere and let them know she can only eat from that bag ( even if other options may be safe). Well today my daughter went to a class that was offered through the city we live in and I specifically asked the teacher if ANY food or drinks would be given or used for ANY purpose and told her my daughter was Not able to have any food or drinks unless I brought them for her and I was told no they never deal with food or drinks in class.... I pick her up and she tells me mommy we had COOKIES! What???? So I called and spoke to someone and of course got oh sorry, make sure you let them know blah blah. And then my daughter starts vomiting and has been vomiting for the past 3 hours straight :-/. How do you handle a situation like this where it was a blatant disregard for what was said and there is basically no recourse. I'm so sad for my sick little girl right now but also don't want to keep her from doing things due to her celiacs and people's ignorance. Thank you
