Editorial Reviews

The first in the Family Health Education Series from world-renown Children's Hospital Boston, "Raising your Celiac Child: Guidelines for a Gluten-free Life" provides all the information the family of a child newly diagnosed with celiac disease needs to get started managing a healthy lifestyle. Experts and families combine to present information in an easily understandable, documentary style. Narrated by a teen with celiac disease, the DVD provides reassurance for parents and role models for children. The DVD is divided into easily navigated modules that permit accessing the extensive information in manageable segments. In addition, key information is presented in summary points that can be printed for future reference. Viewers can access the accompanying Children's Hospital Boston website for additional details or links to other sites. All families facing the seemingly overwhelming task of helping their child deal with a gluten-free lifestyle should view this DVD.

"A 'must see' for all CD patients and their families. The content is accurate, up-to-date and presented in a clear and easily absorbed manner." - Ciaran P. Kelly, M.D., Director, Celiac Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston

"AWESOME! Two thumbs up!" - Danna Korn, Expert on the gluten-free lifestyle

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive guide to the GF lifestyle October 27, 2008
What's most impressive about this DVD is how completely it covers what celiac patients and their families need to do to adjust to the gluten-free lifestyle.

It provides a wealth of sound advice about how to organize your kitchen, shop for food, work with schools, dine out and travel while maintaining the GF diet. It also talks about how to deal with the emotional adjustment of adapting to the diet.

Because it's a DVD, family members can share and discuss the information together. In that way, it's more effective than any book. It's narrated by a teen who has managed the GF diet effectively, and whose success can inspire younger children as well as other teens.

Because it was produced by Children's Hospital Boston, one of the pre-eminent hospitals for children with celiac disease, the DVD's advice is medically sound.

Bottom line: A very efficient way for families to learn a huge amount of accurate information about living the gluten-free lifestyle safely and comfortably.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Gluten Free DVD December 13, 2008
By T. Taft
I was totally overwhelmed when my 2-year old was first diagnosed with celiac. I'd never heard of the disease before. The dvd helped me not only understand what it's like to live gluten free but also to see normal people doing every day things as they pertain to celiac. I especially like being able to watch just the part I'm interested in at the moment - like shopping or eating out - without having to watch the entire dvd. I would highly recommend it especially for newly diagnosed parents or even kids who want to know they're not alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative DVD on Celiac Disease November 13, 2008
As a parent of two children with celiac diseae, I found this Children's Hospital Boston - Raising Your Celiac Child DVD to be very informative.

The DVD is organized in modules which allows to view sections on topics that are relevant to your current situation. The modules cover such topics as what is celiac disease and diet basics as well as cooking, shopping, school and eating out. For those new to the diet, it covers a wide breath of topics in one organized place.

These are real stories. Children, teenagers, parents and experts share their knowledge and emotion. You feel a real connection to these people as they face the challenges of celiac disease and enjoy life on the gluten free diet.

A valuable resource on celaic disease.
