School Is Having A "take A Plate" Day

11 posts in this topic

So I was just handed a note by my daughter who forgot to give it to me yesterday.  On Thursday, her class will be having a class party that they won because they have a high percentage of children eating healthy food for breakfast.  Makes no sense to me, the kids are eating well so we'll give them junk?  Anyway, each child needs to bring in a plate of food to share.  I hate these parties.  Even before I knew she was coeliac, we're vegan, so the class parties involving Happy Meals and pizza were never any fun. 

 

I'm thinking of taking a fruit salad, but being winter the fruit that's in season isn't too good, not many options like in summer. 

 

Any suggestions?  Oh, I'm getting my hair done this morning then going to the GP this afternoon then picking my daughter up from school and going swimming then to taekwondo, tomorrow I'm leaving town and will be back at 4.15 then have netball at 5.30 so I'm pretty time-poor as well.  Or maybe she can have Thursday off? Just kidding about that last part :D

I love those days too (not).

 

My son is nut allergic, so different but similar. I tend to send him in with a lucnh box of things for him to eat, which I know are safe, and try to make it similar to what others migh have, so sandwich, chips, cupcake, fruit etc, and also send something for the class to share (but put his portion in the lunchbox already, because of cc etc). Great chance to educate people on the joy of a good gluten-free cake?

 

This way he doesn't feel left out. TBH I probably give him more 'treats' for something like this than I usually would so he feels included, but I know he eats helthily the rest of the time.

 

Hope it all goes well (especially the hair B) )

Are there good veggies that are in season? A party doesn't have to mean all junk. Maybe a veggie tray with a healthy-ish dip. And of course, as was pointed out, send your daughter with her lunch completely packed, and a treat so she feels like she isn't missing anything. Or you could just say screw it and buy a bag of chips to send. :lol:

Yes there are veggies, but at her new school I do wonder how many would know what celery is.  Culture shock.

omg I can't believe I didn't think of this before, but if the school isn't doing that whole "zomg the world has to be nut free blah blah blah" crap you could do ants on a log. Far more appealing than just veggies. I'll still get 1/4 of the way through a jar of peanut butter with my celery and then be like omg what happened? :ph34r: Plus the celery will be less like a UFO covered in nut butter and fruit. :P

As someone with a son with a nut allergy, I'd seriously think before taking nuts, Anapylaxis is no fun for anybody....

Schools generally have a policy in place for either the classroom or the whole school if they have a child with a problem. If parents haven't been notified it shouldn't be a problem.

 

ETA: sometimes it is also just a specific nut, which means you could just use a different nut butter.

There are no known nut allergy children at the school (70 children over 8 year levels, not a big school) but I'm still funny about nuts in environments like that.

Too late for the deadline, but how about a cold rice salad?

    • these sound like celiac reactions  yes   ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction   always and find your self a great natural practitioner and   rebuild  your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet  Good Luck
    • Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me.  I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific.  I wondered if anyone else had this problem.  I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!?  I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case!  Thankyoy  steph 
    • I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this.  I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist.  Today marks day 23 of diarrhea.  Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse.  I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little.  If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C.  The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly. 
    • Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
