Gluten-Free Kids: Raising Happy, Healthy Children with Celiac Disease, Autism, and Other Conditions 2nd Ed (2nd Edition)

The lending library is temporarily closed.

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. This new edition 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; and Tips on dealing with kids whose diet is complicated by sensory or cognitive issues.
