I'm actually surprised they hadn't already thought of it. Did you see them on Undercover Boss recently? I love that show.

No way no how would I take dd to eat at Subway. I just don't see how they could keep contamination out. Megan is super sensitive to gluten and I just don't see how a restaurant surrounded by this much gluten could safely offer gluten free anything.

I agree actually. I tried once (only once) to buy a salad from there for my daughter. (She's sensitive, but not as sensitive as yours to gluten). She had a horrible reaction and was ill for three days.

We also avoid pizza places that offer gluten free pizzas. I'm sure that some people with allergies won't react, but sadly, mine will.

I know a lot of moms who are doing gluten free for ADHD rather than something like Celiac disease. I think it would work well for them, but yeah... if it's an allergy as bad as peanuts, no way!

BensMom, definitely. If they are avoiding gluten, but have no significant reaction to it, then it's going to be great! And truly, I do appreciate businesses that try to put a spotlight on issues like Celiac Disease. I am grateful for their effort even if it doesn't benefit me. (Plus, I'm an absolute fan of their grilled chicken onion teriyaki subs!).

Subway has always had the option of making the sub into a salad. That's the best GF option for Subway because there should be no cross-contamination. I was GF for a while, trying to help daughter with reflux while BF, and always got their salads.

I noticed this the other day when I actually went into the Subway and not the drive thru. I have a good friend who has to avoid glutten. She is excited about it. We try to limit glutten, but have not gone completely glutten-free.
