Celiac disease or gluten intolerance is a serious health problem affecting both children and adults worldwide. Parents whose children have a gluten intolerance or celiac disease carry a special responsibility. Not only do they have to be alert to what their children eat at home, they have to try to protect them when they go to school or sleepover.

Celiac disease is the immune system’s reaction to gluten. Gluten, which is found in grains such as barley, wheat, and rye, can cause health problem for kids who have sensitivity to the protein. Create a little notebook in which you can write down what foods your child eats or can eat. If your child is spending a night with a friend, he and his notebook with gluten free food’s guide can go off together. The friend’s parents can consult the information to determinate which foods are safe and which they should avoid.

If your child is starting gluten – free diet, you should explain the diet to him before you begin. Have fun. You and he might prepare the foods together so that your child better understands this diet and willingly participate in it. Now you can easily find gluten-free products and baked goods at healthy food stores or through the Internet. Create your own gluten free ingredients list, which will help you with your cooking. You will have to experiment with new ingredients and perhaps even discover new recipes. Unfortunately, sometimes it can be tricky to come up with tasty meals. Luckily, we have a solution! Read on to find a few fantastic recipes that you can spin together in no time. Here are some great gluten-free recipes.
