  1. My 13yo son was diagnosed by biopsy in August of this year. We have not had to travel since he has been diagnosed. I am concerned with holiday travel coming up. My husband wants to visit his parents this year for our kids Christmas break but, I'm concerned about my son getting "glutened" while we stay at my in-laws. I already know that they will think I'm being irrational if I insist on bringing a toaster and cookware for my son's meal prep. They won't understand about him not being able to use the communal butter dish or serving utensils. Fortunately, my sister-in-law says that there are gluten-free options at their small grocery store. But, I'm worried about what to do, say and generally how to handle this. I don't want to ruin my family's vacation. I want to show my son that his life doesn't have to stop because he has Celiac. I want him to still be able to travel and visit his friends and family! Any good advice out there as to how to handle this with my in-laws and how best to ensure my son doesn't get glutened without offending anyone?
