  1. My dd went gluten-free at the age of 6. At first she thought that gluten free breads, cookies, etc were so gross. So I simply stopped making gluten-free baked goods and stopped buying them as well. I would feed her anything that was naturally...
  2. Welcome to the boards! So sorry that about everything your little guy has gone through, but yay for a diagnosis! When my dd was diagnosed I was so very relieved to finally know what was wrong and what I can do to help her. Here are a...
  3. I'm not in Michigan, but welcome! It definitely takes time adjusting (and even mourning!) to all of the dietary changes. My dd was diagnosed at the age of 6 last year, and my second daughter just tested pos at the age of 5. My recommendation...
  4. A few ideas for breakfast that I had for you are: -cooked rice with milk and sugar -pre-cook hard boiled eggs and keep them in the fridge, serve with fruit, yogurt, milk, etc... -I make a lot of things ahead of time (waffles, pancakes...
  5. My oldest daughter was 6 when diagnosed. My 2nd daughter was 5 1/2 when diagnosed. Both tested positive through blood tests, no endoscopies were done.
  6. If you want to know whether you have celiac or not you MUST continue to eat gluten. The test results will be inaccurate if you have already eliminated gluten from your diet. If I were you I would eat gluten until you can get a proper diagnosis...
  7. Definitely have her keep eating gluten if you want her to have the biopsy. We chose to not have my 6 year old daughter have the biopsy after a positive blood test. With her strong symptoms and our family history of celiac, we felt good...
  8. My dd (7) has celiac, and my 2nd daughter (6) just tested positive as well. We do have gluten bread, pasta, oats, and crackers in the house. I do all that I can to avoid CC (seperate toasters, strainers, cupboards, etc...). My daughter...
  9. My kids love them with rolled up with cream cheese, ham, and cheese
  10. I really want some opinions here! My husbands family has a STRONG family history of celiac. His grandmother was diagnosed 8 years ago, his mother diagnosed 10 years ago, and my oldest daughter was diagnosed 9 months ago (blood test had...
  11. It is so very heart breaking to see what these little ones go through. I have a 7 year old DD with celiac, and our 5 year old just tested positive as well. One thing that we have found helpful is to be sympathetic, but straight-forward...
  12. My 7 year old daughter loves baking gluten-free with her easy bake oven. I will typically just make a normal batch of gluten-free cookies, and then give her a little dough to put in her oven. She thinks its great.
  13. For my 7 year old we send: Italian pasta salad (full of veggies, cheese cubes, pepperoni's, etc) Tuna salad and a rice cake Egg salad Chicken salad Apples, celery and PB Fruit, ham and cheese kabobs Homemade lunchables 7 layer...
  14. My 6 year old daughter was just recently diagnosed with Celiac. Her doctor does not seem very educated about what is and is not ok (she gave us a handout that had been printed in 1994!). I am switching to a doctor who specializes in Celiac...
