Today, we thought we weren't doing very badly. We were eating foods that we thought were safe, the kids were doing okay.
Then we let my son have some tea - cammomile tea. Loose leaf, so no gluten issues with the tea bags, but after the tea, my midget starts having a case of the crazies. Terribly upset for no reason, won't sleep, angst driven - the exact opposite response you might hope for from tea.
And after a quick check for ingredients, we find out it contains oatstraw. Also known as groats. Also a possible gluten contamination issue that no one seems to be able to agree on, especially if you react to oats. We don't know if he does yet or not, as we haven't let them have oats yet.
Poor dear. I feel so guilty! Darn it.
Honestly, I wish we had more information. What little I could find was very contradictory and leaves me feeling, as I often do, like I'm going to have to abandon the food until I can figure out what the real story is over the ingredient. Another research project, here we come.
Sigh, guess it's another one for the 'live and learn' column. Somehow, I wasn't expecting such a long column over the last year. :-P
