Soy products aren't a great choice for Os, although they are considered neutral. Wheat gluten is absolutely the worst thing for Os and for anybody with a gluten problem. It's the same exact wheat protein that she needs to avoid in wheat products, only refined and concentrated!

In general, those fake meat products are highly processed and unhealthy for everybody.

Giving her real meat, either turkey or beef, is a much healthier choice. Number one, it's less processed. Number two, Os need meat in their diets for optimal health. A high fat diet isn't going to raise her cholesterol; it's the carbs that mess up blood lipids in Os.

Hot dogs in general are fairly highly processed; even the most natural ones should be an occasional treat or a "transitional item." It's best to limit your reliance on these kinds of foods and help her develop a taste for things like homemade beef burgers, homemade roast chicken, stews, meatballs, etc. Also, if she's used to eating hot dogs on buns, she may be more open to eating another kind of meat in another method (say, meatballs with rice or rice pasta, or chicken legs as finger food) rather than bunless hot dogs.

I occasionally give my girls the all beef hotdogs that are uncured, by Applegate farms. They are delish. I forgot to add that my girls eat meat almost everyday (grass fed). I also make compliant chicken nuggets and fish sticks for them, with toasted and ground up Udi's bread. I bake the nuggets in the oven.

My oldest also get very bloated whenever she eats gluten, dairy, and/or corn. And soy makes her break out on her forehead!

Also I am confused... can she have Soy Milk or Wheat Glueten which is in Smart Dogs, Veggie Hot Dogs or would Turkey Dogs by Jennie O be better. She is glueten senstive, but not totally allergic.The Smart Dogs are a lot less fattening 45 cal vs the Turkey dogs have 70 cal and 45 cals from fat. Sooo confusing on the best to give her.

I'd take the fat any day over the gluten.  But like Ruthie said, it's better still to stay away from hot dogs as much as you can.

No whole wheat rice cakes, please!  Wheat in any form - puffed, gluten, flour, etc. is not going to help either child be healthy.  Look for 100% whole rice cakes.

Any time you buy pre-prepared foods, it's going to require a lot of reading on your part, at the store, and the quality of foods are not going to really contribute much.  

Making foods from scratch will require time at home, cooking, but will pay off in the long-run.  

The second option is going to give your children the best long-term results.  Think:  fresh foods, no chemicals, no additives

Processed food is an avoid.. all hotdogs are processed all brands are processed, you would be better of to give her turkey homemade, not deli meat..
She needs to have no wheat at all. Sometimes people don't understand what wheat is.

Since she's an O, actual meat would be better, and you should avoid gluten.  I looked up the ingredients of the Jennie-o dogs and they look pretty scary .  Do any stores near you sell applegate farms products?  They sell turkey dogs that are all natural, have no preservatives, and are gluten free.  I think they just have meat and spices, so unless the spices are avoids they should be much better.  (organic valley also has some natural hotdogs.  I think they're sold under the organic prarie brand)

get ground turkey and other compliant animal protein and add the spices and form into sausages or patties......no additives or junk there

yes that's the ones I was recommending, they have no avoids. No gluten, dairy, casein, or nitrites. Obviously not for everyday, but when we bbq that's what we eat. Grass fed beef is the best choice though! For her school lunch I use the applegate farms uncured turkey with no nitrites. If your daughter is as picky as mine, it's impossible for me to give her asparagus and a steak in her lunch box. I have to also be realistic. At home for dinner and weekends it's a different story.
