same song, second verse...

In case you were wondering, "GF/CF" is a gluten-free/casein-free diet, in laymen's terms: No Wheat and No Dairy.
Also it means virtually all fast foods, prepared foods, candy, etc. is out. She barely eats anything anyway, and now two mainstays are out and all of our reinforcers. You wouldn't believe where all gluten shows up...almost everything has it in it, because it is in many soy products, soy lectin, etc. is such a common stabilizer in processed foods.
It will be a big pain in the butt. We obviously can't give Beans goldfish and then say, "Oh...none for you Abby!!" At least not while they are so young. Not to mention getting food out and getting family/friends to comply. Infractions are so easily comitted, even by the well-intentioned, KWIM? I was really hoping that we would not need to do this.
