    I just stopped buying it. They will adapt. Rice, tators, and fruit are fine for replacements.

      Bake homemade bread using einkorn wheat flour. Amazon sells it under the Jovial brand. Yes, it's wheat, but it's an ancient biblical strain that doesn't have the same genetics or bad proteins or addictive gliadin that the modern dwarf hybrid wheat does.

      Or you could try emmer (farro). Amazon sells the berries, not sure about the flour.

      Wikipedia has a lot of info on emmer and einkorn.

      I've never tried it, so tell us how it goes.

        I have been doing better with my teens and other family members. They have eating rice, sweet potatoes, white corn tortillas more for their starchs. They still do eat bread sometimes but I switched to one with 7 grains and less wheat and bakery fresh ciabatta bread.

        I have making paleo meals and just adding sides for them. They have been snacking on fruit, hard boiled eggs for snacks. My one who is more of a sugar addict has greatly reduced his sugar sneaking. They are not consuming as much milk as I refuse to spend a ton of money on it and my youngest drinks too much milk anyway. So all in all I feel good with the gradual changes. It helps that we have never bought that much junk and always focused on veggies over grains.

        They are all quite thin and fit so I don't want to limit them too much. Maybe I will buy more cream so they can have that with fruit to up their fat consumption though they do get olive oil or coconut oil when I cook meals and butter or mayo on their breads.

        Now to convert my DH as he is seeing my weight come off, I think he is becoming more motivated. Giving up alcohol will be his big one though he has reduced his consumption along with less smoking which seem to go together for him. He has always been more of meat, potato guy anyway and as always hated wheat. He has way upped his exercise though so I have seen good changes from that alone the last 6 months.

          We buy a gluten free style bread from a local bakery for our lacto-veggie daughter. At 3 she seems okay with but, would go back to regular in a instant if I had it in the house. lol. I'm convinced wheat is one of the issues that flares up her ezcema, bad.

          This one we have though cost $9.50/loaf and is made with Quinoa and amaranth.

            I have one child with Mild ADD ( the reformed sugar, sweetener sneaker) but the other two don't have any issues really. Though years ago one had some mild rash on one leg and both ankles kind of like eczema but has since gone away in his teen years. I would like to move to gluten free I am going to have to experiment with different ones but at least they like white corn tortillas ( that's gluten free usually right?)

              Sourdough has a fermented component. Whole foods carries a sliced, no sugar added loaf that is delicious.

                I always assume they try to sneak flour in somehow. Where I live it's rare to find those babies unless I go hunting at specialty stores/farmer's markets. And then I have to ask the person selling it b/c there's no label.

                  I let my kids/hubby use Udi's white sandwich bread. It's not perfect, but it's not gluten. With my husband's mother having celiac disease and my having it I just don't want to take any chances with wheat.

                      Rice cakes can make a good substitute for bread some of the time. My 4 year-old gets rice cakes instead of sandwiches for his kinder lunch, and I feel good about it because at least it's gluten free and less processed, and the teachers won't think he's being abused through lack of grains!

                        I buy the cheapest bread at Safeway for my family...their in-store bakery loaves. No chemicals or preservatives, no HFCS. Under $2/loaf.

                        Store bread doesn't interest me, but home baked or artisan bread...oh dear. Its partly my 2 year love affair with bread making that brought me to primal. So no, I'm not going to whip up a loaf of homemade bread for my family, because the chances of there being enough left to make 2 sandwiches are pretty low.

                          Thanks for this thread, I have been thinking about the same thing for my non-paleo son.

                          I buy whole wheat bread from Trader Joe's that has a very short and acceptable ingredient list. I don't think white vs. whole wheat matters much--my understanding is that there are more anti-nutrients in whole wheat, even though there are more nutrients as well, so it's kind of a wash. My son is used to whole wheat so that's what we get (he protested loudly the first time he got a sandwich on white bread!) I stopped getting the multi-grain type as it had soy in it.

                          For a dinner roll, I have served almond-flour based biscuits (Elana's Pantry recipe) to company and everyone seems to enjoy them. They are pretty quick to make--almond flour stuff is less picky about how it is handled than gluten flour baking, so that makes it easier.

                          Could hungry teens get in the habit of microwaving themselves a baked potato for a snack? Served with some good grass-fed butter, it might be tasty and easy and cheap (well, not the butter...)

                          I have ended up making fewer pancake-type things even though my son likes almond-flour versions--they end up with more sugar on them than seems worth it. We have also been focusing on reducing sugar, or even just replacing lots-of-ingredients sweets with simpler things like a chocolate bar or yogurt and maple syrup.

                          It's hard to experiment with expensive foods like GF bread or Pure Wraps ("raw, vegan, and alkaline" kind of cracked me up) when I know nobody else will eat it either if my son doesn't like it. I didn't mind so much when I could just finish his leftovers.

                            Great responses everyone. Yes, I don't like oatmeal, cereal or pancakes much because they tend to add too much sugar or honey. Usually they eat grains/ bread on a sandwich and occasional side with dinner.
