She had been labeled a failure to thrive, her speech was delayed along with motor skills. Once the gluten intolerance was diagnosed, things turned around quickly. She's growing like a weed, loves school and is a changed little girl. I her to pieces.
She is so intolerant you can't use a 'gluten exposed spoon' to put food on her plate. We had pizza one night and I put her left over gluten free pizza on top of the regular pizza to refrigerate. I never thought about cross contamination. She couldn't eat her left over pizza because it had touched the other one.
I've read that gluten intolerance can possibly be traced to introducing gluten foods to babies at too early of an age.
I'm in the early stages of helping a gluten-free food company get off the ground... These are exciting times!
