My daughter (8 years old) may have Celiac disease. I am being told that the treatment for this is a Gluten Free diet. I know absolutely nothing about Gluten free diets. Can someone educate me? What foods will she not be able to eat?

Foods that contain gluten are mostly foods made with flour (flour has gluten in it). They are things like bread, pasta, muffins, pizza, noodles, some cereals, biscuits, potato chips, anything crumbed, spaghetti, museli bars, cakes, etc. There are some really helpful websites around, and most supermarkets have gluten free food sections. It will be a big change.

Here is another great link to a quick gluten free guide:

http://www.naspghan.org/user-assets/Documents/pdf/diseaseInfo/GlutenFreeDietGuide-E.pdf

I have celiac disease and was diagnosed a few years ago. It was hard at first but it gets very easy to adjust to once you are used to it. When I first found out my diet became really boring. I stuck to rice, yogurt, fruits and vegetables, meat, and salads mostly. But you slowly find other things you can eat and start to adjust your favorite recipes to be gluten free.

Eating out is the hardest part but you learn how to do that too. And there are a ton of restaurants that are now offering gluten free menu items.

It may help to schedule an appointment with a dietician once you find out for sure.

Good Luck!

and since she's 8..I know quite a few pizza places around me have gluten free crusts. I cannot however account for their quality, but I think it'd be worth a look (I remember birthday and end of year pizza parties, and if she's on a sports team or any activity where parents take turns with meals it's something to keep in mind!)
