Daily Free Eating In Classroom?

10 August 2015 - 03:07 PM

Does anyone have children that are in classrooms that are used for daily, unrestricted eating by all of the students?  We have enjoyed gluten free classrooms for years now, but our latest relocation has us in a school that allows students to freely eat whatever they want in their classrooms.  I would appreciate hearing about the classroom environment for other celiac and gluten allergic/intolerant children.  Thank you!

Effective Research Review - Critical Analysis Of The Study Used To Establish Gluten Thr...

The following article from the Celiac Support Association was super interesting to me.  I am trying to digest it all and apologize if it has been posted here before.




I am always amazed at how much research our family has had to do to advocate for our health and wellness.


In case my link is messed up, the article is:

"Reviewing medical literature:  a primer for those living with Celiac disease

The safety, toxicity or otherwise of gluten...

Author:  Dr Geoff Forbes (MBBS, MD, FRACP) is a Gastroenterologist at Royal Perth Hospital, Perth, Australia; and Clinical Professor with the University of Western Australia.  He is a clinician with expertise in immune conditions of the gut and in clinical nutrition.  He is a teacher and researcher, and as he has family members with Celiac disease, he has a first hand knowledge of living with the gluten-free diet."


It is so refreshing to have such an advocate for the celiac community.  I just hope Australia heeds his words of wisdom!  I am still astounded at what a difference the strict legislation in Australia has made for our family.  I just pray that it stays that way and that other countries around the world follow their lead.  I think New Zealand currently has the same standards, but am not positive.


There is so much good stuff in the article, but I love the commentary on "Interpretation by others of a study after publication", and the first paragraph (repeated in bold as last paragraph of his summary and conclusion) really resonates with me.
