Welcome to g-free kid!

I am the author/illustrator of the children’s book, Mommy, What is Celiac Disease?
My twin daughters and I are gluten-free for life because of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. I am excited to have this vehicle to share my thoughts and ideas to make your child’s gluten-free journey happy and healthy. Up until now there have been way too many things floating around in my mind with no real place to share them.

As this blog grows and evolves, you will find plenty of helpful topics here, all intended to help your gluten-free child thrive — not just survive. I will be posting all things related to bringing up a g-free kid and will try to divulge everything my family has learned in the past five years, along with easy recipes, book & food reviews (complete with kids’ opinions, too, of course), giveaways and other surprise features along the way.
I’ll also be sharing craft and play ideas, too, as I believe gluten-free kids just need to feel and act normal instead of being overly-focused on their diet and condition.

What you won’t find on this site (at least from me) is: whining, complaining, feeling sorry for ourselves, wishing things were different, swearing, blaming and bad attitudes.  Please join me by helping — with your comments — to keep the tone of this blog as positive as we should all be for our g-free kids. Thanks, and enjoy!

  1. Hi Katie,

    Thank you soooo much for this website. This is something I have been looking for.
    I have 3 daughters 2 have Celiac 6 & 5. Love the tips for parents and the recipes. I just printed out the valentines cards for the girls. They were so excited so thank you! Cant wait to try the marshmellow recipe they’ll love it. I will definately be on this website alot and share w other parents. Its nice to know I’m not alone. Most of the time I cant wait for the holidays to be over because of the stress w the parties at school etc. but this year its been a little easier. Especially when your child gets a teacher that gets it.

    Thanks again!
