  1. Potatoe Chips

    Utz chips say gluten free on the bag. My family loves them!
  2. Thanks for posting this! We love their sausages!!
  3. Just wondering if anyone safely eats the Yoplait kids yogurts or gives them to their celiac kids? We eat the regular Yoplait, but my son wants the small Dora the Explorer Yoplait kids. Thanks a bunch! Cali
  4. It seems like Target didn't put out there brand of Candy Corn this year. I combed the aisles with my daughter and son yesterday, no luck. Just Brachs. Bummer. p.s. we are in northern mass.
  5. Thank you all so much! These are wonderful ideas. I was having trouble kick starting my brain. I've got the gluten free down but to add the nut free as well, I panicked!! thanks for your help!! Cali
  6. Hi My son started preschool and his classroom is nut free. I am having trouble thinking of some gluten free/nut free snack ideas besides fresh fruit and cheese. Any ideas for products that do not contain both? thanks Cali
  7. When we go to the dentist they use regular pumice mixed with crest toothpaste. It works great and our hygenist has been so nice about preparing this special for us! Just make sure they know this is a serious thing for you and nothing can be put in your mouth without verifying it is gluten free. Good Luck!
  8. We use Method brand dish soap.
  9. Our kids live on these crackers! Especially the cheese. I find them at Stop & shop, Market Basket, and some local health food stores. I think you can buy them on amazon too! Good Luck, Cali
  10. Our kids live on these crackers! Especially the cheese. I find them at Stop & shop, Market Basket, and some local health food stores. I think you can buy them on Lame Advertisement too! Good Luck, Cali
  11. We also eat the Blue Diamond Nut thins everyday! We love the cheese flavored. I just bought the blue diamond Almonds and so far so good! I have been looking for a nut that we could eat safely...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that these work out! Thanks for the tip! Cali
  12. Sunblock

    This is always a concern of mine too!! We used the Banana Boat kids dryblock all last summer safely, I loved it because the sand didn't stick to the kids when I reapplied at the beach. You can also go for the more pricey but very good California Baby brand. It says free of gluten and many other allergens right on the label. Good Luck and have a great time!! Cali
  13. I've had the same thoughts about this new Tide. If it helps at all, we started using the one with lilac and baking soda, and have had no problems. We are extrememly sensitive in this house! I actually found that my son's skin irritations improved. I was using regular Tide, but heard that many consider it very harsh on the skin. Good Luck! Cali
  14. My hands are usually cracked, sore, bleeding and scratchy at this time of year, BUT I've been using Gloves in a bottle this year and my hands feel oh so soft!! I love this stuff! Good luck! Cali
  15. Aquafresh says it is gluten free on their FAQ page. We also use Arm & Hammer Peroxi Care with no problems. Good luck! Cali
