One of the things we have tried to impress upon our son is that while being unable to eat certain foods is inconvenient it really is not that limiting. He can eat what he wants to eat, we just need to plan ahead. We also try to remind him of all the other children with similar issues. We want him to know that he is not alone and it is helpful that he is not the only child in his school with the same issue.
At the Gluten-Free Expo we met Stasie John, author of a new book called “The Gluten Glitch” which is all about a little boy who, like my son, sometimes misses out on things because there is something that happens last minute and we can’t do a safe swap. We bought her book and my son loves it. My husband has been reading it to him over and over and over. We even had our first ever taco night since the boy in the book has a taco night.
So if you want to pick up a copy for a child you love who can’t eat gluten, here is a link to Amazon. The book is also available in the UK from Amazon.
