Need Help...eating And Feeding Evaluation Form From School

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

they know she has celiac disease at school. she was just diagnosed this summer.

school has been in for 4 days, tomorrow is day 5.

so far i am just sending her lunch, and she has permission to get fruit and drink and ice cream and veggies from school if there is something she wants and can have.

so far she has bought tangerines and a drink, but thats it.

today the school nurse called, and has sent home a paper to have filled out and signed by the doc just to help educate and make everyone aware and everything official.

(she is planning to come to my support group meeting i am having monday night)

so i need help as to what to put on this form.

it says:

list any dietary restrictions or special diet

list any allergies or food intolerances to avoid

list foods to be substituted

list any special equipment or utensils that are needed

indicate any other comments about the childs eating or feeding patterns

there is also a food allergy action plan, but i dont think that one needs anything as it deals with epipens, etc

also, a note from the nurse that the cafeteria manager sent me a copy of the menu for the whole month and wants me to know that if there is nothing she can eat on a certain day to let her know and she will be glad to fix whatever she needs.

thanks in advance for all your help

i am still new to this, and am learning..............

on the last 2 sites you need to read the products and make sure they say gluten free cause they don't sell some stuff that isn't.

If you google celiac 504 you should get some pretty good examples of answers for these questions. Also, try any of the websites of the celiac centers like Childrens Hospital Boston for advice about school.

 

http://www.childrenshospital.org/clinicalservices/Site2166/mainpageS2166P12.html

 

this page has a school packet that is really helpful.

 

http://www.childrenshospital.org/clinicalservices/Site2166/mainpageS2166P110.html

 

this is what usually I put.

 

list any dietary restrictions or special diet

Celiac - No gluten (any foods containing wheat,rye,barley, or oats) - barley may be listed on labels as malt
list any allergies or food intolerances to avoid
list foods to be substituted

Can eat fruit, vegetables, milk (chocolate and regular) [fill in]
list any special equipment or utensils that are needed

Avoid cross contimination with any breads or cereals. Food should be prepared on clean surface. Wash any pots. Only use clean metal utensils (etc.)

 

indicate any other comments about the childs eating or feeding patterns

there is also a food allergy action plan, but i dont think that one needs anything as it deals with epipens, etc

No epi pen is needed

also, a note from the nurse that the cafeteria manager sent me a copy of the menu for the whole month and wants me to know that if there is nothing she can eat on a certain day to let her know and she will be glad to fix whatever she needs.

    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
    • @PosterboyOne thing is though I never get heartburn. And this only happens when I've consumed something for consecutive days, like I had the bananas and too many nuts. But if PH has something to do with it then maybe when I'm eating more vegetables and broth that's why I usually feel much better, it's more alkaline. On a ph urine test whenever I'm feeling like this I ALWAYS have a reading towards the acidic part. When I feel better it always goes towards the alkaline level and usually in the ideal level. Part of it started when I was under high stress in the first place. A few years ago. I couldn't eat as much/well because I was very worried about things. The realization about celiac came later but basically my world fell apart and I've fought but never felt really okay again. Then at the worst before I knew about celiac disease I was vomitting for days. Now I can eat many more foods but it's still very touchy if I don't strictly eat vegetables, broth, lots of water and small amounts of fats and protein. I'm scared to take anything artificial. I've only recently been able to take very small amounts of probiotics. Is there no way to repair your stomach acid without taking pills? Would going on a strict alkaline diet help?  I read everything you wrote except the link which I don't know if I can concentrate right now. Thank you.
    • I have seen this a few times....run a gluten free bakery....one of my previous customers has the disease, but he gawks at my prices and then goes eats from other stores and consumes gluten products.....I tried offering freebies left over items to get him to switch....been watching him degrade over the past 3 years. He now walks...odd like Frankenstein with locked knees and a wobble and seems be much less active not appearing at this job few days a month now....I do worry about these people. Celiac effects everyone different some violently, others do not see the damage or have grown so use to the issues that they consider them normal. It is a sad thing to see. I have seen improvement in my own body following a strict diet and regime and see major consequences when I trip ......I can not imagine anyone cheating but my reactions are bad with many side effects. Celiac being a AI disease can cause other secondary complications I am all to aware of if  you cheat, mess up.
    • I don't know, it's probably best described as a lot of bile, sometimes yellow, sometimes green (sorry) and a lot of mucus (sorry_) and when I eventually throw it up  (if it gets to that point) it's burning in my throat, so I equate it with acid. Also because of the term "antacid" I think of it as a lot of acid but I guess it's a lot of bile, mucus and I thought the extra stomach acid produced dealing with whatever food I ate. I've done the wrong thing though because now I'm in the pain I was dreading, with swollen eyes and everything and really bad depression now and hopelessness. I keep feeling like it's all futile and too late. That however hard I try I can't figure everything out in time to be well.
