Synopsis

As public awareness has grown about the gluten-free (GF) diet being a requirement for anyone with celiac disease, so has evidence that suggests the diet can help improve other conditions; it seems to reduce the symptoms of autism, and helps diabetics lower their glycemic index. Written by an authority on gluten-free living and the mother of a son with celiac disease, this revised and updated edition of KIDS WITH CELIAC DISEASE is now titled GLUTEN-FREE KIDS because it also speaks to families whose child may need to be gluten-free for reasons other than celiac disease.

All the practical strategies and reassuring tips are here that thousands of families relied on in the first edition to teach their child to adjust to the GF diet, deal with eating outside the home, shop for ingredients, learn to take control of their diet, and manage behavior. In addition to explaining the GF diet to a child with celiac disease and how to maintain a GF kitchen, GLUTEN-FREE KIDS also includes:
- Adaptations for introducing the diet to a child with a developmental delay or poor impulse control;
- A new chapter on the benefits of good nutrition, avoiding processed foods, and making healthy GF choices;
- Advice on different types of medical testing for celiac disease and other conditions;
- Tips on dealing with kids whose diet is complicated by sensory or cognitive issues.

The author's conversational, can-do attitude gives anyone the confidence and know-how to manage the challenges of the GF diet, especially those who need to maintain the diet for a lifetime. Parents, doctors, dietitians and other medical professionals who prescribe GF diets will find this a useful and practical resource.
