Finding Fun Gluten-free Treats for Kids by Danna Korn

I'm a big believer in fun, especially when it comes to eating. And just because your child is on a gluten-free diet doesn't mean he or she should be deprived of one of life's greatest pleasures. It will require a little extra work on your part, but its well worth it.

Don't think your choices are limited to carob and fruit-juice tofu, and don't limit yourself to the health food stores (unless that's your preference - I should have mentioned that I'm big on fun, but I'm also big on junk food; I think its an important part of growing up).

Learn to read labels carefully, and to call manufacturers. Even if a label appears to be gluten-free, you should call the manufacturer to make sure there are no hidden ingredients, and to ask about manufacturing procedures. Many chocolate bars, for instance, are coated in flour to keep them from sticking to machinery and wrapping.

More tips, additional information on gluten-free treats, and lists of gluten-free junk food can be found at www.celiac.com and in Danna's book, Kids with Celiac Disease.

Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range.

You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession.

That is a good choice. That way you can have an official diagnosis. I regret not getting a blood test as it would have made explaining things to people around me a lot simpler. It is common for family members and other people not to understand celiac disease and to think that it is a eatin...
