My daughter's school has specialised walk to school days each term to get all the kids in together for a fun morning. Their "reward" tomorrow will be a breakfast of a sausage sizzle. So I just had to tell my daughter she has to miss out, I don't have time now to organise an alternative for her.

Who has a freaking sausage sizzle for breakfast at school?

Cook up some bacon real fast?? A bacon sizzle? Heck, I'm not exactly sure what a sausage sizzle is. If it's just sausage, could it possibly be gluten free? Or are they going to add a wheat crust, eggs, etc.?

Okay, this is going to be one of life's challenges....

Sausages on bread. Not at all suitable for a kid who is vegan and coeliac. If it's all about healthy living, why the heck does it need to be something that unhealthy at the end? Last term it was fruit.

That's crazy , I agree!!

We have the same thing but when they get to school they have fruit/fruit cups and milk or juice.

There are times when a fun snack or dessert is acceptable but not on a healthy walk to school day. Geesh . what are they thinking !!!!! Wrong message folks !!

Sounds to me like the organizers of this year's breakfast don't eat much fruit themselves. In my opinion - when something like this is planned by parents it often changes "flavor" from year to year. Are they serving fruit in addition to the sausage/toast?

Perhaps you could speak or email one of the organizers to let them know that:

1) They have excluded your child and any other with a restrictive diet from taking part in an activity that they were previously safe to participate in.

2) Fruit, Juice, Milk are far more healthful choices for this type of event.

If they make no changes, find out whom is organizing for next year and let them know your concerns - so your child can safely participate once again.

I'd bet there are many parents with similar concerns to yours that will not voice their opinion - if no one speaks up, the organizers will not understand the error they've made.

No, last term they had fruit, this term they had sausage sizzle. We are only halfway through the school year here, and it's the same people organising it. Well, she missed out and she was very annoyed at them because 3 staff members offered her a sausage on bread and she hit the third one away because she shoved it right into her face, so my DD got in trouble. I put it back onto them and said WHY would the staff do that? I would have reacted with the second time, she has more patience than I have.

I'm sorry that is awful - staff? Goodness gracious - can you bring your concerns the Principal? That's not just rude, it is potentially dangerous for your daughter.

    • You can always check to see how long the lab order lasts, if you'd like to continue eating gluten longer.
    • Might be something else in there, perhaps he ate something else with gluten, something was mixed in the chips, the chips were flavored or in a snack mix with pretzels. I get that way with gluten, but the last 2 times the gut issues render me unable to argue like that but I do go Mr. Hyde like =. Seems to be linked to my mental confusion that arises when I eat gluten the fog and looping of thoughts causes extreme anger and makes it where I can not connect things and think rationally leading to anger, outburst, random acts, and punching and breaking things out of frustration.
    • I hate to say it and be Mr. Negative ass here. But I had this exact same thought about having kids, I do not wish any kids I have to have my AI issues, and decided I would wait a few decades if need be for the new gene editing things they are working on so we can have them changed. Call me crazy.
    • Unsure but I would say wheat, when making that kind of soup you normally use wheat base flour as a thickening agent when preparing the soup. Often formed into a roux with the meat juices after cooking the meat and before adding the rest. Yeah I have issues with the pick up thing too, never accidentally ordered but I have to call them after every order to make sure they know it is me (manager knows me) and they do not put seasonings or sauces on stuff.   It is one of two restaurants in town I trust, but there are only two sides they do that are safe. I bring my own sauce, and main meal order the sides and a drink and go there to fee like a normal human sometimes. lol On a cooking note you can make your own using another flour, a deep nutty flavor like sorghum works great with this or garbanzo for the roux. You can also go and apply another technique where you take some roma tomato chop them up and stir them simmering with a bit crushing them with the ladle in the ban and it will thicken in to a roux like consistency. I find this last method pairs well with a cooking wine to deglaze and add brightness when finishing and can be used for flavorful soup bases or gravies.
    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.
