About this site

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 intolerance. I am excited to have this vehicle to share my thoughts and ideas to help make your child’s gluten-free journey happy and healthy. Up until I started this site, there have been way too many things floating around in my mind with no real place to share them.

As this website 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 5+ 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. And besides my (somewhat sporadic) blog posts, there is a wealth of information on the permanent pages of this site (explore the black menu bar) which is meant to give gluten-free families everything they need to be successful.

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!

This website represents my personal views on products, services and topics that I believe are helpful for Celiacs and their families.  None of the opinions expressed here are magical formulas, and they may or may not be right for your own family. The sole purpose of this website and book is to help spread awareness about Celiac disease and to pass along insights and tips that have been helpful for us in our own personal journey.

All information provided on this site is for informational purposes only and may change over time. Be warned that many products and recipes I recommend may contain other food allergens (the only thing we avoid is gluten) so please consult your doctor or nutritionist to discuss which food items you can/cannot consume.

This website (http://www.gfreekid.com) makes no representations as to accuracy, completeness, currentness, suitability, or validity of any information posted here and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its display or use. All information is provided on an as-is basis.

If you are a company wishing to send product samples for a review, I will be pleased to provide my family’s honest opinions, from gluten-free samplers. Please email me at kachalmers2(at)gmail.com to make arrangements.
