My DS (almost 3) is finally seeing his pediatrician on Friday for his severe failure to thrive. From there we will go straight to the lab to get his blood work done including his Celiac Disease screen (just for my own knowledge so I know what the test says). On Saturday we will start a gluten free diet. I am not looking forward to this, but am looking forward to getting some results. I would love to get some ideas on how to do this. It is wheat, barley, rye and oats I need to avoid right? Does anyone have the time to write in their favorite gluten free recipes?? Also, does anyone know if I can just take one of my regular recipes (ie banana bread) and substitute the flour for gluten free flour?? Or do I need special recipes written for gluten free flours specifically? Also, can we share your/your child's favorite gluten free products ie cereal, bread, pasta? My son isn't a big fan of potatoes, rice or beans - hopefully that will change with time. Thanks so much!!!
PS I tried searching this forum for help and got over 14,000 hits for "gluten free" references. I don't have time to read through that many posts!!!
