Hi all! We are travelling to Indonesia (Bali & Lombok) over the Christmas period this year and our 18mth old is both gluten and dairy intolerant 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? Thanks, I know this is early but I like to be prepared! We've been to Bali many times but never with our GF son

I have not been to Indo but have travelled to Asia with dairy and egg free children alot. Obviously rice and rice noodles are readily available. I take my own baby formula or soy milk in tetra packs (the soy milk in asia is completely different to Australia and my kids won't touch it). I find dairy not so difficult as in Asia they are not so big on dairy. I also expect gluten would not be too difficult as it would mostly be a rice based diet. you should be able to easily get rice and vegetables and meat but I do not know much about GF eating myself. Egg is much more difficult Good luck I know what it is like travelling with kids with allergies and intolerances. It is not fun. I would take a stash of GF crackers and snacks your child enjoys for both the aeroplane and the holiday....upside = once they have been eaten you have more space in your luggage for shopping!!
