She is eating Udi's White Sandwich Bread - about 3 slices per day. It is made with brown rice flour. I had read that brown rice is a fructan and should be avoided on many sites, but our dietician said it is not an avoided food on the elimination diet. So far Tootsie is doing really well with it. It tastes great toasted.
A snack that we have recently discovered is Corn Thins by Real Foods. She likes the sesame ones. Sometimes we spread a little Adam's Peanut Butter on them or a little cream cheese. She also likes Pirate's Booty for a snack.

"The VERY latest food composition data available, as of 2/2011, show that brown rice has a "trace" of fructans and white rice has "none detectable." Long story short, they are both very acceptable on the elimination phase of a FODMAPs-restricted diet. If a person has an adverse reaction to brown rice, it is very unlike due to FODMAPs." -Patsy Catsos
