  1. I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons. Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home.
  2. Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools...
  3. Well the update is that I spoke to the school principal who spoke to the entire school. Son's teacher was made aware and is very supportive. Each morning he takes his lunch without fuss to the teacher who keeps it safely locked in his desk. But my son tells me the kids have been much better since...
  4. I feel really sad that your family are not supporting you or your health. Accidentally ingesting gluten can make you very sick and ultimately damage your gut indefinitely. Quite frankly that alone would mean my entire family (who are a TEAM) would work together to ensure the safely and wellbeing...
  5. Actually I just wonder if some people are just stupid. No, I don't wonder, thats a lie. I have noticed though that with my 3 kids who are coeliac, one is extremely sensitive. I had a 98% gluten-free household as the youngest and myself are not coeliac, and he has to keep eating gluten...
  6. And believe me, I could just about murder the little devils. I know 12 year old boys can be dumb, but this really takes the cake (gluten free of course). They have been teasing him and calling him a "freak" for his change in diet, but he felt it was just light hearted banter and he could cope with...
  7. Frittata? Mushrooms with a side of salsa or a poached egg on top. Sautéed tomatoes, steamed spinach and bacon? Coconut yoghurt (non dairy) with some seeds/safe grains, fresh fruit? Fruit compote? Porridge made with rice/quinoa flakes?
  8. Hanshotfirst have you considered cooking or preparing some gluten free alternatives each time, to take and share and show others how good it can be? I know its expensive to do so but it may be a way to show others that gluten free eating can be okay?
  9. This looks like an old thread but I guess it can be revived. I am not coeliac myself but two of my kids are and we are only just gluten free for 10 days. Nevertheless I can see how socially isolating it can be. My kids are 17 and 12. The younger one is the sickest. Right now he can only manage ...
  10. He is 12 and due to being so thin, voraciously hungry at present. I thought about rice crackers and gluten-free hummus - he loves that. No way would he be off playing with little kid and miss food, he hasn't been this hungry for years. The pizza roll up might work. I cant do fish or...
  11. Hi people. I'd just like some ideas for what I can take for V to a formal family dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant has stated there is no gluten-free safe option so I have to take his meal and dessert. I can make him gluten-free chocolate cake so thats fine. But its a three course dinner, and...
  12. Righto. Keeping a food diary is what I will start tomorrow. Thanks everyone. On the plus side Mothers Day is this weekend (here in NZ anyway) and my eldest son is cooking a roast for us. He was very intent on making sure he gets everything gluten free. I am impressed with his dedication....
  13. Yes, I am avoiding dairy also. I think it has made him vomit in the past. Oh heck. Wait. I gave him gluten-free Up and Go in his lunch yesterday. Dam I am such a doofus. I was trying to get some meat on him. No more up and go.
  14. I've just had a call from out GP with biopsy results. She said it confirmed celiacs and has a March 4 level. Does this sound correct? She said she expected it given his antibodies were the highest she had ever seen. We have an appointment on Friday for follow up. At least we know for sure now.
  15. Yes, the broth helps. He wolfed some down and felt okay. He insists he didnt eat anything from his friends. He did however gobble several gherkins last night - I checked they were gluten free but I am wondering now. Dammit. He loves gherkins.
