Elimination Diet Help

493 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  cjr
Hey there! Our pediatrician just asked us to put DD on a no wheat, no soy and no dairy diet for three weeks. Has anyone else done this? I am looking for some good snack ideas! Any advice will help. DD already loves some veggies but what I am mostly worried about is the whole cracker/snack issue! She loves crackers and veggi burgers and all of that will have to go b/c of the soy and wheat.

Thanks for any advice!

There are a few good rice crackers out there, as well as other gluten free bread type products. Is your daughter still nursing?
Can she have other grains? Barley flour is a soft, low gluten grain and it bakes up just like white flour even though it's a whole grain flour. I use it all the time with wonderful result. I just sub it in all my wheat recipies.

DS is wheat and dairy sensitive and we don't do soy unless it's fermented. It's really very easy. Spelt make wonderful whole grain bread. DS loves spelt bread, barley grain pancakes/waffles/muffins, fruits, and cucumbers for snack. Here's a recipe for power bars that ds loves. These are really good but I would not recommend baking for the full time, maybe 5 min less. Make sure they cool completely before cutting them, and cut with a sharp knife because they are sticky. I find I have to cut them in strips and the loosen the bottom with the knife. Then I take the whole strip out and slice on a cutting board. I adapted it to suit ds's diet...

1 cup dried figs
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup apricots
1/2 cup almonds
2 cups steel cut oats
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup honey
0.67 cup (1/3 cup) molasses
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp orange zest
1/2 cup dried cranberries - roughly chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon


Power Bars
