It seems that I have offended some readers. That was not my intent. I was only relating my experience. I still have celiac, I know this. I said that I can tolerate gluten now. I think it is wonderful that there is so much more information available now. I am not suggesting that people take their children off a gluten-free diet. Going gluten lite was okay for me, but it was a personal choice. It was very difficult when I was younger to find help or food. Nowadays, in my opinion, it is so much easier because there are foods that are readily available for people with gluten allergies.
I have read on here that several parents are sad for their children. I always had to eat strange concoctions that my mother created, but I was never made fun of by other children. I know children can be cruel, but I don't think having celiac is anything to be sad about because one can go on to live a normal life. I have and I did it without prepackaged foods. I just wanted parents to know that as an adult who was diagnosed as a child, I am thriving and I didn't feel a loss of any kind.
