My family doesn't take food intolerances seriously, as they have never dealt with any cases. Or at least, they don't connect the symptoms to food. My mother believes grains are absolutely necessary to health, more so than meat.
I'd give it to hear sometimes. And possibly make your own sourdough rye bread without yeast etc.

I'm all for modifying cravings. Everyone sometimes wants a treat, so why not just displace what you're eating? Instead of eating cake, I'll eat cheesecake or ice cream. Both can be made relatively healthy, or at least not unhealthy. Just reassociate his bread craving with something else. After all, it's probably just a craving for starch. Potatoes, rice, etc. At 21 months old, it should be easy to reprogram his sense of taste.
My grandma made this awesome ricotta cheese cake for Easter. Ricotta cheese, eggs, sugar, vanilla. Pretty much it. I skipped the other 9 cakes and trays of cookies and went for that one. That's my mindset anyway.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
America is suffering from a childhood obesity epidemic and half the people in this thread's suggestion is:
"Give the kid bread because it tastes good, I don't see the problem and it's easier than fighting with your kid."
Because it tastes good? That's the best we can come up with? Isn't that why everyone is fat?
And we capitulate because it's easier than doing the right thing? Shameful. THERE IS NO DIETARY REQUIREMENT FOR NUTRIENT POOR BREAD. Step your game up and be a better parent. You're supposed to be teaching and leading your children, not capitulating to them.
Celiac or not, bread is never the right choice.
For the last time, gluten and grains do not directly cause obesity. There is a world of difference between wonderbread and a organic non gmo bread with only three ingrediants. You are probably worried about giving your child fruit because of fructose as well.
Holy shit people like food that tastes good this is news. I guess we should all do what rebootedbody is doing and eat food that doesn't taste good and make ourselves enjoy it anyway
He who dares not offend cannot be honest.
Is the child fat or in bad health?
I have to admit.... I'm a little leary of the "grains are bad" outside of people with grain allergies. I think it is an AMAZING source of easy to eat excess calories that don't provide much nutrition for the calories.
