Review

The author's expertise, can-do attitude, and focus on good nutrition gives anyone confidence and know-how to maintain the GF diet, especially those who need to be gluten-free for a lifetime. --ForeWord This Week, January 13, 2011

As many as one out of every 133 Americans has celiac disease, and many of them are children. Danna Korn, a nationally recognized authority on how to live gluten-free offers guidance on how parents and caregivers can help children adjust to a gluten-free lifestyle. The best ways to educate family and friends, what to look for when grocery shopping, tips for maintaining a gluten-free kitchen, and substitutions for gluten-containing ingredients are offered in a friendly, reassuring style.

Health information is included too, with a discussion of testing methods and common symptoms. A helpful appendix lists ingredients and additives that are safe as well as those that are forbidden. A glossary defines common terms related to his autoimmune condition. --Taste for Life, January 2011

Korn covers everything. Parent emotions and grief. What to do (when going gluten free). What to say to your child and to others. How to read labels. Celiac sprue. Gluten intolerance. Wheat allergy. School. Birthday parties. Camp. Restaurants. Cheating and accidental infractions. It's all there. --Not New to Autism Blog (Homeschooling, Autism & ''Stuff'')

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book full of good info. For general purposes, you will be glad you bought it.

Unfortunately for me, it is almost verbatim exactly what is in this author's book "Living Gluten-Free for Dummies". Our whole family was recently diagnosed [some have celiac, some have gluten intolerance]. I had bought her Dummies guide and LOVED it - it is awesome. Then I bought this book looking for more information specifically geared towards children. I was so disappointed to find that it is mostly the exact same info that is in the Dummies guide - much of it *exactly* word for word the same.

My suggestion if you don't have any of her books is to buy the "Living Gluten-Free for Dummies" because it is more complete - you will get the kid info, but also a lot of other info beyond what is in this book. Both books are great in their own right, but you don't need both of them, it will be a waste of your money.
