Symptoms of celiac disease in children can appear at any time after the introduction of gluten into the diet. Signs often include diarrhea, a poor appetite, a bloated or painful belly, and weight loss. It is therefore important for parents to introduce a gluten-free diet as soon as their child is diagnosed. As the Food Ambassador for Coeliac UK, with two successful gluten-free recipe books to his name, who better to develop nutritious and tasty recipes for children with celiac disease than Phil Vickery?
Gluten-free Cooking for Kids equips parents with everything they need to know on providing their child with a balanced diet, from guidance on the essential ingredients of a gluten-free cupboard to instructions for making gluten-free flour mixes for baking.
Phil has devised over 70 original recipes for children of all ages. For babies, there are lots of fruit and vegetable purées to try, as well as teething foods. Toddlers can enjoy Vegetable Hash with Lettuce and Apples or Sausage, Bean, and Potato Casserole, while children given Roasted Squash and Basmati Rice Salad or Turkey Rolls for their lunchbox will be the envy of all their friends at school. The Party chapter is packed with delicious treats that all children will love, such as Baby Pizza Slices and Zingy Lemon Cupcakes. Phil has even included a chapter of fun and easy recipes for older children who are ready to cook on their own.
