Am feeling depressed challenged by the latest food restriction. My boys are 8 and 4, are also dairy free and can't have peanuts or sesame.

So far we have
Rice flour pancakes
Eggs and bacon, no carbs

We can't get gluten free rice crispies here and the amaranth and quinoa options have been dismissed by the 8 year old as horrible (they are!)

Suggestions welcome!!

What about potato cakes

Can they have soya?

Magicmayhem Thu 28-Mar-13 17:23:55

how about an omelette, or scrambled eggs,

Smoothie? With milk substitute , banana and peanut butter and oats if allowed? Plain natural soya yogurt with homemade fruit compot?

Sorry just saw about the oats blush

Rosti with bacon lardons?
Soya yoghurt with banana and blueberries?
Rice flour fruit muffins?

Would they consider rice pudding made with eg almond milk?

Rice porridge -two ways.

1. Made with rice flakes and rice milk in the microwave, with a bit of added Pure margarine and served with golden syrup and or fruit.

2. Mashed banana and rice milk mixed with baby weaning rice. Gets expensive using this for larger children sized portions.

Also potato bread.
Mix mashed potato with rice flour and dry-fry slices in rice flour. Then the slices an be frozen and reheated in Lakeland toaster bags to guard them from any crumbs in the toaster.

Thank you all!! Great suggestions! Thank you!

Soya yogurt, why didn't I think of that!!

Pressed post too early, rice suggestions also great, I have ground rice in my blender before so will try that. Potato cakes were not popular but will try again.

rice krispies?

Rice crispies have barley malt, but at a low enough level for some coeliacs to tolerate it.

Pancakes made from gram flour or buckwheat flour?

DD is 5 and is dairy, soya, oats and barley free and she has her special rice crispies from H&B (sorry I know you said you could not get them) but she follows it off with a pot of puréed fruit which she calls her " special yogurt" (you can buy them in the baby isle but they don't look like baby food iyswim just 4 pots.

Also could your DC tolerate lacto free milk?

Hash browns and beans. Potato waffles and beans.

Although you may have to make your own as shop bought may have wheat in.

Fruit an yoghurt I love raspberys an blueberrys with honey on.

The Doves cocoa rice seem to satisfy all your needs and are really tasty.

Buckwheat makes tasty pancakes too, and you could make american style ones and freeze so you only have to microwave them in the morning. Try making some muffins with various berries, carrot muffins (like carrot cake, but with applesauce instead of oil and pineapple to reduce the sugar) and freeze them so they can choose
