  1. Did the campus dininig service provide her with any special food? UM does not even have one single gluten free cold cereal to offer. I can appreciate how difficult it would be for them to cook gluten free for her. Do you think it would be unreasonable of me to ask them to purchase Amy's entrees to prepare on occasion? Thank you so much for your advice.
  2. Thank you so much for your reply, I was unaware that celiac falls under ADA rules. She does have a confirmed diagnosis. The University of Miami Office of Disability Services was the one who told me "she needed to get control of her own health" so they are useless. Did you have to deal with a specific office at your college? A nutritionist or counselor of some sort?
  3. My daughter, who has celiac disease,is a freshman in college and she is required by the university to eat in the cafeteria and purchase a meal plan. I have asked for a list of ingredients for their menu but have gotten no where. Has anyone else had to deal with this? One lady told me that "she needs to take charge of her own health". That is difficult to do when you do not have the tool which is as simple as a list of ingredients. I would appreciate any advice you can give me. She is also a vegetarian. Thanks!
