Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

Fast Food GF/CF: Don’t Scream!

It’s not easy, it’s not healthy and it’s not perfect, but this is how we run it:

McD: French fries, apple dippers with no caramel.
BK: French fries, apple sauce.
Wendy’s: French fries, mandarins.
Chick Fil A: French fries, fruit cup; lemonade’s OK.  Their policy is separate fry oil but you don’t know for sure without asking.
Panera: fruit cup, Mango Smoothie (without the raspberry swirly stuff).

He won’t eat: plain hamburger meat (unless it is the size and shape of silver dollars; he calls them “meat disks”—quite appealing).  He won’t eat grilled chicken either.

If all else fails, I keep a tiny Tupperware bowl full of organic peanut butter in the Town & Country; we like to eat that with a plastic knife.

Other ideas?  Keep them coming!  Alas, we’re new to this…

We occasionally allow a french fry cheat but as far as I understand it – McD’s fries are offlimits for wheat & dairy.
Someone tried to explain that the ‘hydrolized’ meant OK but I dunno…..

French Fries:
Potatoes, vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*), citric acid (preservative), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil ((may contain one of the following: Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness), dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent). *
CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK (Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients).
