    Dang! We keep kosher (I keep having to explain at work that, no, I’m not going to the farewell lunch) and one of my kids has celiac. That child remembers pizza. Mine isn’t as good (I’m told, I think it’s better, but hey, I’m not the one with celiac). That child is adjusting. They have pizza Friday at school. It is HARD.

    It doesn’t matter how many Udi’s chocolate muffins I send. It is still hard. But I will send them. And bake GF cookies. And when it’s our turn to take snacks, you bet it will be GF stuff.

    But… I also know that my other child had a severely food allergic kid in class. When I brought in home-made rolls (no celiacs in that class) it was the ONLY treat the whole year that kid could eat.

    When the celiac gets us down, I try to remember that. It’s not just celiac. There are people who are allergic to chocolate (and I told my allergist that I would refuse such a diagnosis). Or milk. Or soy (do you know how much stuff has soy???).

    It’s still hard.

    My grandson is 17 was diagnosed with celiac this past summer.
    I feel bad that he doesnt feel like eating for much of the day. At that age most teens are eating you out of house and home. Some days he hardly eats anything.
    When he was small he loved golash and would have seconds. Also liked grilled cheese. He does try pizza but doesnt eat all the crust.
    I just feel really bad he doesn’t eat. Don’t know how he can go all day till after school and not eat.
    Sometimes in the morning he does have deli meat, but that is only twice a week.
    Any tips on how I can be mote positive for him?
