Gluten free for Kid #3
I have noticed that Kid #3 has a sensitive stomach. We discussed this with the doctor and she was screened for Celiac several years ago with a blood test. The results were negative. Two years and a different pediatrician later, I mentioned it again. He suggested just trying a gluten free diet and seeing what happens. So we are. Her belly feels a lot better and her (**TMI ALERT**) trips to the potty are a lot more pleasant.
So this got me to thinking, maybe we should all go gluten free for a while? We eat a fair share of gluten free products, but the majority of us still eat wheat. I am currently investigating the cost, impact on the overall grocery budget and our health and happiness. I need to experiment with a few things and try them (I have not tried a lot of the products I feed Kid #1!). It is scheduled to be the topic at the dinner table tonight.
