I'm not familiar with SID and we don't have gluten issues here BUT I have lots of dairy-free recipes if you need them. Let me know what kinds of things you're looking for.
@Gingersnap does gluten-free at her house, so she might be more helpful
Thx so much for all your responses. I really appreciate it as I am at my wits end.
So, she's has food intolerances and, in addition, has sensory issues, meaning she will throw up "offensive foods". And by offensive, I mean a variety of things that would be considered a typical diet. Its a chicken and egg sort of thing as I imagine some foods are associated with discomfort, whether GI or sensory, and they get rejected.
The issue I'm having is with protein. Due to sensory issues she refuses any chicken, fish, meat, tofu, soy products. She will take kefir (lots of sugar=stomach ache) or greek yogurt (lactose issues). I've tried unflavored protein powder but she can actually detect the granules, no matter what I put them in.
We have gone to occupational therapy for nearly a year in an effort to make food "fun" and nonthreatening, as odd as that sounds. Not much help. Nutritionists are typically not familiar w/ the sensory end of it.
We are undergoing a series of tests at a GI clinic and I'm hoping maybe something will show up. In the interim, I'm going crazy. Though I am encouraged by the doctors at the children's hospital- they think there is truly an underlying issue (gee, you think?) rather than my dismissive pediatrician.
Despite efforts to make meal times non-contentious, she's got an older brother who feels that her special diet is unfair and calls attention to it. Seems to be setting her up for disordered eating. Maybe counseling is in order. For me LOL.
Anyway, more of a vent than anything. @Gingersnap and @SAHM1020, thanks for the offer. Its truly appreciated. I think all a parent wants is to provide a whole and healthy diet for their little ones- not nuts and berries :-/
