It's been a long time! I should have dropped a comment in earlier.

I've been GF for years now. It's not really hard to do, especially nowadays with so many products available, and if everyone in the family will go GF too, it will be easy. If don't have any wheat-based products in the house, she won't feel singled out or slighted, even if other kids have those things.

If you can bake, get yourself a bag of Pamela's Artisan Flour. It's GF, and acts pretty much like regular flour in the way it cooks. You'll find it easy to use. Also, if you decide to try one of the GF cake mixes, it's Pamela's all the way. Same goes for the brownie mixes.

Rice noodles, quinoa noodles, corn noodles--you won't be lacking for noodle choices. They don't cook up the same way, and aren't as sturdy, so experiment a little.

I'm happy for you all that this problem was discovered so early for her. It saves her from decades of illness and pain. Hurray!

Thanks Laura,

Yes it's been awhile. I hope all is well with you.
Thanks for the tips. It looks like we are on the right track this time. GF/dairy free has definitely helped, whereas dairy free alone wasn't cutting it. We'll add dairy back in soon. If we can keep that and just go GF it will be easier.

I think it's good that she is starting so young, this will become ingrained more easily. A friend of mine pointed out that she is right at that age where she can use the stove and is willing to learn, so she can start learning how to bake her own GF goodies and cook her own meals.

I keep telling myself "it's not a problem. It's an opportunity". Now I have to go to Trader Joes and find some good GF breakfast cereals.

Is she still not on gluten? If so I have some great ideas for you.

One Sick Mother

Still no gluten! We have been eating a lot more (mild -cos she's a wuss) curries and Asian food in general. Rice all around!
