cursted and yogut

One group of grandchildren was camping with their parents and friends this weekend.

This is the shopping list of one of the children who's in third class.  I note her spelling is well behind her abilities in maths where she understands and practises concepts and ideas well beyond what is expected of her age.  She's always been that way.

I also find the foods listed puzzling.  They do not eat many lollies at all.  Sweetness comes from fruit, usually.  She's one of the two girls who are coeliac.  Well she definitely is, and her younger sister's gluten intolerant but not yet coeliac diagnosed.

She hates GF bread, although eats a little of the bread her mum and dad make and leave before baking in the fridge for up to a week.  That alters the dough structure so it's more acceptable.  The "cursted" may be OK, depending on what it's made from.  "Yogut" should be OK, but some brands have additives she can't have.

What I really find strange is that she's very particular about what she eats and has been for a while.  She knows the difference something with gluten makes to the way she feels, possibly even landing her in the hospital with severe stomach cramps.

It's wonderful that she understands the consequences of her food choices - that will stand her in good stead!

It's good that she knows what she can and can't eat. It will keep her being well.
I think good spellers are generally born, not made. You can become a better speller by hard work, but it is a constant battle!! I expect and custard made with anything gluten will be 'cursed'!!
