Feeding four-year-olds is hard enough, throw celiac disease into the mix and this becomes a very daunting task. We explore gluten free options at home and in the San Francisco Bay Area and put them up against the toughest critics around... my kids.


In the beginning before we knew



My scrumptious cupcake changed dramatically in fifteen months and we weren't sure why. This babygirl had a sensatiable appetite and would eat anything gave her.  Hence we thought her protruding stomach was the result of a wonderful appetite.  At night, she would sometimes grow restless and we assumed she had growing pains. However, this was not the case. Her excretion was different so I spoke to my doctor about it. At her next pediatric visit the the doctor mentioned that she should have a simple blood test to analyze her gliaden levels since comes from a long line of Northern European descendants.  The results of the TTG blood test were positive for celiac disease so in order to confirm this new gluten free lifestyle change, the doctor ordered an endoscopy.
