A lot of gluten free foods are higher in calories..but mostly it's th ones specially made gluten free. Naturally gluten free are not necessarily higher. My niece has CD. She was 8 when she was diagnosed. When she found out she couldn't eat cheerios or oatmeal I thought she was gonna have kittens. My sister learned that most of the Chex cereals are gluten free, always have been. They are now marked that way. She drinks almond milk which is gluten and dairy free, 1/2 the calories and fat of cows milk. She does buy her some of the special mixes off and on..but mostly she doesn't miss them. She is able to get good carbs with fruits and veggies. A 3 yr old is a tougher challenge because they really can't understand why they can't have something..

Bob's Red Mill has a whole line of Gluten free products and mixes that are quite yummy. I had a friend that was severely allergic to gluten and he was skilly as a rail, AND he had irratable bowels.
