I just received this message from a reader who needs help to get her 4yr old Celiac child to eat healthier. Any advice from mom’s out there who could help would be much appreciated.
“Hi, what do you suggest about a 4 yo who was diagnosed about 3 months ago with Celiac and she’s EXTREMELY picky? We went from boxed food to GF boxed food because I’m trying to give her what her friends eat because she comes home from school crying about how she’s “weird” and “different” so I match the crap they consume to make her happy and not “different.” There are no support groups here in KC so we’ve been winging it ourselves. I’ve gotten her to successfully eat one vegetable – carrots – and only one “kind of” meat – pepperoni and beef, only if it’s in a taco. Any other suggestions? She basically lives on “bars,” Fruity Pebbles and dairy products.”
