    Default Gluten/Dairy Free Toddler on Holiday

    Hi all! We are travelling to Indonesia (Bali & Lombok) over the Christmas period this year (YAY!) and our 18mth old is in a very strict gluten/dairy free diet, so I was wondering if
    A) Anyone has taken their gluten/dairy free child (or themselves) to Indo and what was readily available i.e GF cooking staples etc,

    and B) If anybody knows the quarantine guidelines regarding taking cooked meals into Indonesia from Australia? (Or how I can obtain official info regarding this?)
    Thanks, I know this is early but I like to be prepared! We've been to Bali many times but never with our GF/DF son

    Sorry no help but subbing because we want to go away soon and none of us can have dairy or eggs.

    I haven't specifically taken a GF child to Bali and Lombok, but have been there a gazillion times. There are GF indications on menus in the cafes, and any restaurant/warung would happily accommodate allergies. Perhaps have a laminated business sized card made up with the Indonesian translation of the allergy specifics (eg No eggs, milk, cheese, pre-made sauces with wheat etc - really spell it out). This might be of more use in Lombok where english is less prevalent.

    As far as taking frozen meals with you - my experience is that you can take pretty much anything in food wise, it's never checked.
