LisaLulu Posted May 20, 2014 Share Posted May 20, 2014 My husband and I are paleo and the kids eat paleo at dinner and gluten free at breakfast and lunch. I want to transition the kids over to paleo in the next while. Should be fine for the youngest one, but our oldest has several roadblocks. 1. She's allergic to eggs (as am I) so that rules out a lot of recipes for the whole family as we do not keep eggs in our house. 2. Her school has a very strict no nuts policy so any nuts or nut butters are completely out when it comes to lunches. 3. It's hot out and her lunch can only stay cool for a very short time with an ice pack where it's kept on a shelf in a hot classroom. Her school doesn't have lunch but does 2 'nutrition breaks' one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Being as she's 4 years old I can't trust that she will eat meat at the first one when it's still cool enough to be safe rather than eating it at 230 in the afternoon when it's been sitting in her bag for 7 hours. 4. She has Aspergers and is very sensitive to certain foods/textures to the point where they make her retch. This includes leafy greens, which rules out a lot of calcium from non dairy sources. I tried giving her bone broth and she found it repulsive. She will not eat fish bones. Despite her condition she already eats better than most kids we know, but only because everyone we know feeds their kids SAD garbage and she does her picky eating within the realm of fairly clean food choices (so lots of fruit, nuts, meat, potatoes and cheese). Any suggestions would be helpful. I have considered just pulling the plug on certain foods, but my kids are also pretty skinny and active already so I worry because a lot of her calcium and calories comes from cheese.
