When we went to the lake last week one of the things that I had to bring was a toaster just for Samuel. Why? The toaster in the cabin was used for gluten bread and the risk of cross contamination is too high. So, in our family, we have a separate gluten free toaster. This is just one of the things that I’ve learned since Samuel was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
Tomorrow night I will be on the Udi’s Gluten Free Forum live chatting about Gluten Free Tips, Tricks and Strategies for Kids. Like how do I make Samuel’s normal normal when all around are eating gluten. What about playdough and playgroups? How do you quickly explain gluten free to other kids? What about birthday parties?
I hope you’ll join me and we can chat some more about living gluten free and kids. I’ve already been blessed to email, facebook, and tweet with many of you about gluten free and kids and I’d love to see you there. Come with your questions and advice – it will be fun, informative, and full of support!
