Nathan has been so accepting of his new food plan but Eric is seriously not impressed. They are taking their lunch & snacks every day to the daycare & Eric complains every morning that he doesn’t want to take lunch. He tells me it is because I pack too much. Daycare says it is because he wants what the other kids are having.
I really think the GFCF is doing him a lot of good too but am not certain that anyone else is supporting me on this. I know that I have not been as strict with his foods as I have been with Nathan’s, so maybe it is my own fault. I have been strict with the CF for at least 1 full week & that has brought good results. I wish it didn’t take such a long time to get the gluten out of their systems. It would be a lot easier to say “LOOK! This is working for both kids” if it only took a few days like casein.
I think that for now, I will keep fighting Eric on eating GFCF, at least until Nathan starts Kindergarten. If Nathan has to take lunch to daycare, so must Eric. That gives us about 8 more days of fully GFCF for them both. As I type that I am wondering – is Eric fully GFCF though?? Or, is he getting extra treats at daycare that I am not aware of. It is looking more & more like he needs to be on enzymes, even more than Nathan. I must get busy & research them I guess.
