Matthew has yeast in his gut and I've learned from other ASD mommies that pear juice is the least of the "yeast feeders" (as far as juice goes). I send Matthew to preschool with juice for lunch and snacks, so I usually try to send him with 1-2 boxes (depending if it's a long or short day) and a sippy cup of 1/2 juice, 1/2 water for lunch. Let me tell you that pear juice is not easy to come by (unless you buy the Gerber kind in the baby aisle...but I prefer the organic).
We have 3 Whole Foods stores nearby that I frequent for his GFCF foods. Today I hit the jackpot in Fairfax...pear juice boxes! As you can see in the pic, I now have 48 of them...woo-hoo! The last time I went there they didn't have any, and now they don't b/c I cleaned them out! And none of the grocery stores carry pear juice in bottles anymore...what's up with that?! So if you ever see pear juice (any brand), let me know b/c I'm always on the hunt!
