A Review...

"As both a mother of a celiac child and dietitian, I found KIDS WITH CELIAC DISEASE to be an excellent resource. Upbeat and user-friendly, this guide offers practical tips on navigating the gluten-free food world, from school lunches to birthday parties, while providing in-depth information on how to maneuver through the medical arena from diagnostic tests to medical terminology." --Eveyln Tribole, M.S., R.D., author of Healthy Homestyle Cooking

More About the Author

(www.dannakorn.com) ...
Known as "The Gluten-Free Guru," Danna Korn is an author, motivational speaker, and renowned expert on the gluten-free diet and medical conditions that benefit. She is the author of six bestselling books (her 7th is in the works) on the subject of the gluten-free lifestyle, including three in the prestigious "For Dummies" series. "For Dummies" authors are always the gurus in their field, and are asked to author the books -- not the other way around.

Respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten-free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it, she has been featured in People Magazine, on ABC's "20-20," and dozens of other national media outlets.

Danna's passion for helping people live (and love!) a gluten-free lifestyle was born from a desperate need to help her own son. In 1991, her son was diagnosed with celiac disease, a genetic intolerance to gluten. Doctors told her that her son, like others with celiac disease, would "suffer" a life of deprivation and restrictions, and they gave her no direction for following a gluten-free diet, which was the key to his improved health. Danna wasn't about to accept that sentence, nor would she flounder like many others attempting a gluten-free diet did. Furthermore, she was committed to helping others who could benefit from her knowledge. She was a mom on a mission to help millions.

Without the benefit of the internet, and ignoring the widespread warnings that no one would ever publish a book on the subject, Danna conducted extensive medical research with the nation's foremost experts, and then wrote her first book -- she sent four proposals to publishers. She received four acceptances.

Her work in the gluten-free community has had profound effects, resulting in availability of products that would never have made it to store shelves, and a skyrocketing awareness of the benefits of a gluten-free diet.

Several bestselling books and thousands of speaking engagements later, Danna has earned the moniker of "Gluten-Free Guru" -- and in the process has helped improve the lives of millions by helping them adopt healthier lifestyles. She is a partner with General Mills and their gluten-free initiative, and a consultant for Prometheus Laboratories. In 1991 she founded (and still runs) the world's largest support group of its type, R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), which has more than 140 chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Danna's passion for wellness extends far beyond gluten-free living. She is co-founder and CEO of Sonic Boom Wellness, an innovative corporate wellness company with more than 100 well-known clients throughout the world.

Format: Paperback
As a registered dietitian I've always felt a little helpless when talking with parents of children who have celiac disease. I could offer lists of foods to allow and avoid, resources to local support groups (that are mostly for adults), and a little guidance about how the school lunch system works. But how do I explain, in the short amount of time most insurance companies give me, how this family will travel, go to birthday parties, have sleep overs, and live life? I can't.
But now, I have something more I can offer. "Kids with Celiac Disease" is a book full of practical ideas for all sorts of situations. Danna Korn has done a great job of including things that most people don't think about: what to take on a trip; the importance of teaching your child how to manage when others won't know anything about his diet; to be kind to yourself as you accept this diagnosis. Life is a process.
The book is so much more than tne usual list of recipes you may expect. It includes a definition of celiac disease, a discussion of which medications and little-known ingredients to look for, how to cope with inquisitive family and friends, and some of the politics that surround a gluten-free diet. In addition, Korn has included an extensive list of resources for families on a variety of topics related to gluten-free living.
All-in-all, if there is a child with celiac disease in your life, this is a great book to have in your library.

A Kid's Review on August 16, 2005
Format: Paperback
All these other reviews are from parents and doctors... Well, I'm an actual patient, and a teen at that. This book was given to me when I was diagnosed a few years ago, and it hasn't steered me wrong yet. I take it with when going places overnight, if I need to double check things, and I have most of the lists in it memorized, I've read them over so much. It really was a life saver, because I had no idea what I was doing before I got this. And, since I'm not attached to a parent at the hip anymore, the diet ultimately falls into my hands alone. So, if you have a kid with Celiac, I highly recommend this book. It covers all the basics, like what to watch out for, what's okay, and it has suggestions for replacements for the bad stuff. It also has a few very good tips that make sure the one(s) with celiac don't feel like freaks. Having been there, I must say that that is a very good thing. A "Special Diet" tends to do some serious damage to a childs' self esteem in the grade school years(High school years are a bit mean, too).

All in all, I say that if you or a loved one is newly diagnosed, you should really do your best to get your hands on a copy of this book. You'll not regret it. ^_^

In my opinion, every newly diagnosed celiac or parent of a celiac should leave the doctor's office with their diagnosis AND this book. I spent so much time trying to gather information when my son was diagnosed. There was so much to learn, I felt like I was going crazy! This book not only addresses many of the medical questions you may have about celiac disease, but also the social, emotional, and day-to-day problems and concerns that are now factors in the lives of those with celiac disease. It will answer questions you may have now, and questions you don't even know you've got yet. The writer has a child with celiac disease, so she knows what daily challenges there are. She's been in the trenches. The book is so user friendly too. It's a great resource guide. I spent a lot of time jumping around looking up answers and gathering ideas before I even sat down and read it straight through. I can't urge anyone enough . . . buy this book. It is worth it's weight in gold.

Like most parents, we were pretty shell-shocked by my 5 yr old son's diagnosis. I spent hours on the Internet researching Celiac Disease. Problem was, most of the information was geared towards adults. My initial response was less concerned with what he could eat and more concerned with how am I going to make sure he feels "normal"? What will I pack for lunch at school? How can I send him to school without something happening? How will I deal with the 5 birthday parties he has in the next month? Danna Korn's book answered all of those questions and the other 1000 I forgot to think of. This book is a life saver. My son started Kindergarten 3 days ago and I feel like all is well. I read it cover to cover in one night. As parents of celiac kids, we are not alone. Danna Korn helps you see that.

Such children must have a gluten free diet. Kids With Celiac Disease will also help families cope with post-diagnosis transitions and show how lifestyle changes can lead to happy and healthy lives for such children and their families. Of special value is the guidance concerning menu planning, grocery shopping, food preparation strategies, and whether or not it is necessary for the entire family to have a gluten-free diet. There's even a section on junk food! If you have a child with celiac disease, you need to sit down and read Danna Korn's Kids With Celiac Disease from first page to last. The result will be a much happier and healthier kid, -- with a mom or dad relieved of the stress, anxiety, and uncertainty of not knowing how to effectively parent such a child.
