The Gluten-Free Cookbook for Kids
By Adriana Rabinovich
One in 100 people in the UK are affected by coeliac disease, an autoimmune disease caused by a reaction to gluten. For parents of children affected by coeliac disease, as well as gluten intolerance, cooking meals can be a bit of a nightmare, as all foods that contain gluten – a protein found in cereal grains - can no longer be consumed. As well as the obvious foods, like bread, biscuits and pasta, this cuts out a wide range of foods, from pizza and processed foods, to sausages, ice cream, sweets and sauces.
Adriana Rabinovich was one of the parents who found herself in this position, after her 17 month old daughter was diagnosed with coeliac disease, and she’s written this book to help other parents who are trying to adapt to cooking for a child with coeliac. The book is packed with over 100 child-friendly gluten-free recipes, from pizza and chicken nuggets, to crisps and cake. There’s also lots of practical advice for parents on eating out, travelling and dealing with school trips, help with adapting to a gluten-free lifestyle and a top 10 of kids favourite dishes, gluten-free style. There’s even a recipe for gluten-free play dough!
