How To-Gluten Free Kids and Their Parents

Hi there!

Are you a parent dealing with a gluten free child?  Do you have trouble conveying what is gluten free to teachers, administrators, babysitters and more?  Wouldn't it just be easier if you had a list you can hand out?  I think so, and so I have provided a resources below that you can print out and hand out.  I have provided lists and forms.  This form is a form that lists everything that is safe and unsafe for your child.  All you have to do is fill out your child's name in the spaces provided and hand it out to the designated parties.  Worry no more!  You can also find these lists in my GF Parent Index as well as my GF Tips page.

Gluten-Free Candy and Snack List-This list comes with a form you as the parent can give your child's teacher as to what your child can have with this diagnosis.  It also shows you what kind of school products such as finger paints, crayons and playdough have gluten in them.  Please add to this list that Betty Crocker Whipped Frosting and Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy frostings are gluten-free, as well as the Gluten Free Betty Crocker mixes (must indicate gluten free on the box).

**Please note that McDonald's french fries are NOT gluten-free.  **Please also note that most butter/margarine's are gluten-free but always check the ingredients.  

Gluten-Free Basics-This list offers the basics of being gluten-free.  It gives information for foods, candy, snacks and even more school oriented products like certain soaps and squirt paint bottles that your child cannot have if gluten-free.  This list also gives planned out breakfasts, lunches and dinners for your gluten-free children and/or family.

Gluten-Free Candy List 2004-This list offers different kinds of candies and chocolates that have been checked as gluten-free.  Please note that Lindt and Godiva are NOT gluten free.  Milkway is NOT gluten-free.

Gluten-Free Candy List Resources:-Since ingredients always change, this is a list of brand's websites that you can always count on.  Contact brands directly.  Link has contact info.
