Freezing- Budget101 Discussion List

Hi everyone! Well, you are always so helpful and resourceful! After reading all the posts, I bought an extra freezer a while back. I have read that some of you freeze cheese and milk. It is better (or required) that the cheese is shredded? Does it work better for some cheeses than others

    Hi everyone!

    Well, you are always so helpful and resourceful! After reading all the

    posts, I bought an extra freezer a while back. I have read that some

    of you freeze cheese and milk. It is better (or required) that the

    cheese is shredded? Does it work better for some cheeses than others

    (like soft vs. hard cheese?). How does it affect texture?



    And as far as milk is concerned- does it change the flavor or texture

    once it is thawed?



    I am so curious. I would love to stock up and have extra on hand, but

    there is not enough room in the fridge!



    Thanks, Michelle in MA

    My son is getting married this Fall to a wonderful girl...she isbringing 2 children into the marriage (our first grandchildren). The little girl 5is quite "busy" and unfocused but not diagnosed ADHD. The 10 year old little boy has been diagnosed ADHD and is on medication. I do not know the name of the meds but could find out. Both children are thin(genetics) and very picky eaters (choice)- the medicationthat the boy is on has caused him to lose his desire to eat and he's getting too thin- he looks like healmost has an eating disorder (which I guess he does in a way). My question is to those of you with ADHD friends/children in your homes- does anyone have information on "trigger" foods that seem to set off your children? I know sugar and food coloring are typically linked toADHD, but are there other things we should watch out for? His mother and I are hoping to try to
    managehis ADHD (and his sister's ) by changing his diet and getting him off the medication so he has an appetite again. Any opinions, suggestions or even guesses are much appreciated! Thanks! Lisa G.

    I am a Registered Polysomnography Technologist...(sleep Tech) and we see alot of Children who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD that have some sort of sleep disorder. You said that the child is thin so that alot of times rules out sleep apnea...but not necessarily. Does he snore? still have his tonsils?

    Also she can check out his sleep hygiene. Does he get enough sleep. Sleep at regular times etc.

    kids are the opposite of adults. When we are tired we act lethargic...dont want to do anything etc...Children on the other hand tend to seem restless, cannot sit still, and are basically bouncing off the walls. This is a way to keep themselves stimulated so they do not appear tired.

    Just an idea to look into.

    I myself have "self" diagsnosed with ADD and simply cannot stay on track and it drives me crazy. My best friend is a Pharmacist and she is diagnsoed ADD but cannot tolerate any of the meds....so I guess I would say we are functioning ADDers...lol

    <div style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:10pt;">My son has ADHD and we feed him only natural foods (if you can pick it off a plant) and unprocessed meats, unprocessed flour...pretty much that means no prepackaged ANYTHING!

    Also, getting DAILY exercise for a MINIMUM of 1 hour...and especially if it's outdoors, it's worked wonders for Dylan.

    There are also books out there that show you how to deal with ADHD behaviors, as the standard punishments and disciplines rarely work on them.

    Google the Feingold diet if you really want to get serious. I've heard nothing but awesome things about it.

    My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and oppositional defiant disorder. She was on Trileptal, Adderall and Clonidine. I changed doctors and now she is on Ritalin and clonidine only. I would also like to know about alternative treatments because I would like to take her off medicines. My daughter was getting increasingly worse in terms of aggression and hyperactivity but now is also extremely picky and I will fix her six meals a night if she eats only a little from each one because she is such a poor eater. How old are your kids? My daughter is 4 years old.

    From my experience, cream cheese does NOT freeze well. All other cheese does freeze good. Shredding cheese before is a great idea. Not only because of the crumbling affect but, also you can divvy out the amount you need and not the whole thing. If you do not want to shredit, you can cube it. Milk does fine. It looks gross when it is frozen but, goes back to normal when thawed.

    If you go to a alternative doctor such as a chiropractor ,they will tell you to stop all dairy. We did this for my youngest son who had fluid in his ears and the ENT wanted to put tubs in them. After 6 weeks of non dairy eating the fluid was completely gone. Anyways, during this time our entire family went no dairy. We noticed within a few days that the hyperactivity in my oldest son who has ADHD drastically changed. He was no longer doing flips in the living room and making crazy sounds. Then after about 4 weeks he had ice cream at school. Oh my. He was like a top that was wound too tight. He was crazy. Going non dairy doesn't mean just giving up milk. It means no whey, caesin, milk powder, milk, yogart, cheese. We drank Rice Milk for awhile. Sarah Lee Honey Wheat bread doesn't not contain dairy. Parkay squirt doesn't not contain dairy. Pop Tarts are
    dairy free. You just have to read the indredients. Another thing is gluten. But most alternative doctors will day do the dairy elimination first. I know that changing a diet is extremely hard and takes a lot of patience because you almost have to start cooking from scratch. Health food stores do carry non dairy products. Hope this helps.

    Sugar, dyes, artificial flavors, preservatives, msg. high frutose corn syrup. In other words stick to as natural diet as posible. I have 3 kids with problems - mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adhd and autism. I try to keep the diet as natural as pos and have seen a difference. Some people even go gluten free. That I haven't been able to do. For the 10 yr old. maybe try a dif med. My son was on one med he lost so much weight we went to another and his eating got a whole lot better. Keep in mind that often times kids with ADHD don't have just adhd there are things that go along with it. So the picky eating might be a sensory thing (with my little man, if it dosen't pass the sniff test, it won't get eaten), with time it does get better. They also say kids with adhd esp boys need the omega vits. The omega 3-6-9 or the DHA. My kids will only take the Nordic Naturals because they can swallow them, but boy are they expensive. Hope this helps.

    Keep the child away from anything with RED DYE in it. That is what he doctors told me about my son who also has ADHD. You have to read everything carefully..........jello, ice cream, candy, soda For some reason the red dye triggers the ADHD. It is true though.......when I got my son off of the red dye his ADHD was ALOT better!!!. He is now 13 and has grown out of it but I still limit the red dye in his diet. Kelly in IL

    Let me be a little more specific... The only cheese I buy and freeze is: american,colby, cheddar,pepper jack, colby jack and mozzarella. I never tried to freeze velveeta and I do not use any other type of cheese. Hope this helped some. Have a great weekend.

    MSG can be a big trigger. Being picky may not be a choice but part of

    his issues if he has anything else wrong with him. Mine was 13 before

    he was DXed as Autistic for example and most Autistic kids are picky

    eaters. I can't say all because mine isn't. lol Yes if he's getting to

    thin he either needs to get off that med and try something different

    or add something that will help him gain weight.



    Something that that may help is allowing him to choose what he wants

    for dinner a few times a week. Even having him help with dinner may

    get him more interested in eating. He's old enough to pick out a

    dinner he likes, and can stir stuff up in a bowl or measure stuff to

    help.

    I totally agree with this, but I didn't know this myself until mine

    were just to old for it to work with. But if you start off when they

    are babies with this type of diet I think it would be great for any

    kid not just those that are ADHD. In fact those parents that already

    eat like this before having kids may have "normal" kids were as if

    they ate all the junk they would of been ADHD.

    I have freezed both milk and cheese for years without a problem. With freezing milk you need to take a couple of glasses out of the top of the container before freezing otherwise it will expand and make a BIG hard to clean up mess when it freezes. With cheese, I use a relatively hard cheese--sharp cheddar I have found to work the best personally, and wrap it very securely in plastic wrap and then freezer paper over the plastic wrap. With the cheese once it is thawed I grate it up for salads, tacos, etc with out a problem. I have also frozen cheese that is sliced but individually wrapped. When it is thawed nobody has noticed a difference from the frest cheese. Nobody ever noticed a difference in the milk either!
