Specific issue that will be discussed include:

- What is the National Lunch program and what information about the program is relevant to those wanting to buy gluten-free lunches at school?

- Tips on working with your SFA (School Food Authority), School Nurse, Nutritionist and Physician.

- What is a diet prescription? Why is it important?

The Discussion Continues... Transition from Public School to College:

Sabra's presentation addressing public school lunch programs will be followed by a panel of moms who have celiac "kids" in college. They will share their experiences and those of their college students who are navigating the college years.

Sabra and the panel will hold a Q&A following their presentations, so bring your questions and concerns.
