Since 2003, the Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults by celiac-disease authority Connie Sarros has helped thousands of time-stressed parents prepare food for their children with celiac disease. Since the first edition published, the gluten-free guidelines have changed significantly and new labeling laws have greatly increased the products that are safe for a gluten-free diet. At the same time, interest in the diet has grown, thanks to increased diagnosis and a growing awareness that gluten-free diets may improve other conditions, including autism-making this revision especially timely.
This revised edition includes new and revised recipes, along with alternative casein-free options (casein is a protein found in dairy foods). Thanks to these changes, the new book will also appeal to parents of children with autism and other conditions, who have found success with a gluten-free, casein-free diet. The recipes are all kid-friendly, run the gamut from simple treats to hearty meals, and are sure to satisfy even the most finicky eater.
Connie Sarros (Fairlawn, OH) has been preparing wheat-free, gluten-free recipes for over fifteen years, since her father was diagnosed with celiac disease. A popular speaker, she is well-known in celiac circles, lecturing regularly at celiac conferences, health-food stores, and hospitals and has earned the nickname “The Gluten-Free Guru.” Her work has been featured in First Magazine and Cooking Light.
