  1. My 4 1/2 year old has been diagnosed with celiac since she was 18 months. This has turned into a blessing because it never bothered her that she couldn't eat gluten... until now. Up until this point she woudl say she can't have it beacuse...
  2. I had something similar. My daughter had severe constipation, failure to thrive, poor growth, and a distended belly. Her first GI tested her and said it came back negative. Well mothers instinct told me to go to another one. Thank God...
  3. My daughter is attending camp next week and they are having themed crafts made with food that they can eat. I called and got a list of things so I know what I should bring. Although I have no problem with her not being able to eat everything...
  4. For those that don't know, Bisquick is coming out with a gluten free version. It's already mnetioned on their website! I can't wait to try it! RIght now they are just saying the summer. The recipes look really good! http://www...

  9. Jenny, If you are think you might be giving your child gluten but are unsure, perhaps see a nutritionist. It really helped me! I made a food log by brand name of what my child ate and was able to determine the culprit! good luck!You...
  10. Chex used to supposedly be gluten free, but they still contained malt. They took this out and the boxes that sayd Gluten Free on them are fine acording to the customer service at Chex. Incidentely, Vans waffles did the same thing and then...
  11. I would go to a gastro. Most peds don't know much about celiac. In fact, when my daughter was first tested her first gastro read the results wrong, we went to another one because I didn't feel like I was gettin anywhere by just giving her...
  12. That is wonderful that your school is so good! Everyone should be aware that the law MANDATES that kids should be able to get a gluten free meal in school. This goes beyond a salad or rice cakes. It should be a hot meal and meet the nutritional...
