Food, the Holidays & the Truth about Eating Disorders
Think about your favorite holiday food. Maybe pecan pie, maybe roast beef, maybe stuffing, maybe sugar cookies. Let’s say you are hungry. Think about eating that food right now.

Guide to a Guilt-Free and Gluten-Free Holiday

The holidays might not always feel the same for them, especially if they have celiac disease.

Talking to Kids About Celiac
Maybe you've mastered eating gluten-free as a result of a celiac diagnosis. Maybe you're still figuring it out. Maybe you have non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), and are trying to navigate the medically mysterious lands between having celiac and not having celiac. Whatever your situation, you might agree that it's not always easy to maintain a gluten-free diet. Now imagine what it's like to be a gluten-free kid. Be wary of pasta necklaces and play dough in art class. Sit there politely while everyone else eats cupcakes on the first day of school. Don't eat the pizza at the birthday party (or the cake).
