Celiac.com 05/24/2013 - Gwyneth Paltrow is gluten-free and on a publicity swing as part of her role in Iron Man 3 this spring.
In an interview in Self magazine, Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow spoke a bit about the benefits of eating gluten-free, and about her gluten-free cook book due out next month.
Paltrow has been derided by some for perhaps being too strict with her children's diets, by some for making her children a gluten-free diet, and by others for allowing them to break that diet.
But the "Iron Man" star explained to Dr. Mehmet Oz, that the dietary restrictions were due to her children's allergies, rather than stern parenting style. She said that Moses, 6, "has very bad eczema and he's allergic to gluten and she [daughter Apple, 8] is allergic to cow dairy."
She adds that, at home, she tries "to make everything gluten-free for him because the difference in his comfort is unbelievable when he's sticking to what he's meant to be eating."
Paltrow's new cookbook, "It's All Good," details how she steers clear of processed grains when feeding her children, and goes out of her way to avoid gluten.
