Serving foods that are appetizing is no easy task for the parent of a child on a gluten-free diet due to condition such as celiac disease. Forbidden foods, wheat, rye, oats, and barley, pervade most recipes and food labels are not always clearly marked. This cookbook, however, can save families time, money, and anguish by providing clear guidelines for selecting ingredients and preparing food safely. But best of all, this is the first cookbook to provide delectable gluten-free recipes formulated especially for children. The rest of the family will want to try them, too. In addition to food recipes, there are tips for cooking substitution, entertaining, a list of resources, as well as a detailed trouble-shooting chart for the gluten-free baker. Sanderson also offers advice on how to deal with situations outside the home that may compromise a child’s diet, such as peer-pressure and day care.
