Overview

How I Eat Without Wheat by Karen Fine

"How I Eat Without Wheat" is a picture book for toddlers and young children who have diets that restrict them from eating gluten and wheat. The book uses rhyming text and entertaining illustrations to tell the story of a boy who takes a positive approach to his change in diet and restores his health.

After my 22 month old son was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003, I was unable to find any toddler-age book that would help me explain to him that everything was going to be alright. We did not want him to go through life thinking that just because he had a different diet than some children, it did not make him any less "normal." There are plenty of children on special diets for different reasons and I emphasized at home "not to make a big deal." He's now thriving thanks to the new products on the market from increased awareness about celiac disease, gluten intolerance and wheat allergies. A change in diet has changed our lives and I hope to inspire other young children to live happy, healthy lives.

My children are gluten intolerant. They love this book, particularly my 4 year old who says it is about him. It has made a difference in our lives and help educate their classmates about how their diets are different and that they can't always share food etc. Love this book.

This book is a must-have for any families dealing with gluten-intolerance. It is so difficult for young children to understand why they have to eat different foods than their friends and family members. Ms. Fine's book presents a delightful explanation and is educational for children and adults alike!

I bought this book for my sister's daughter who is allergic to wheat. It is a very good children's book that helps children understand how to cope with their sensitivities in a light-hearted and whimsical manner.

I bought 'How I Eat Without Wheat' immediately upon hearing about the release of it. I have celiac disease and so do several of my friends, as well as their children. As a premed student, I think this is a must have for any bookshelf. It helps children understand what they are going through with a disease. It also explains what their friends might be going through as well. The brightly colored pictures are beautiful. The rhyming scheme is catchy and it is simply a wonderfully written book. I don't even have kids and I wanted a copy!

Young children are not small adults, and explaining "why" and "why not" regarding dietary limitations needs to fit a child's perception of good health and habits. This book does an excellent job of putting the reasons for gluten-free food into a context to which a small child can easily relate.

Just purchased this book because my family has gone gluten free recently. The illustrations are cute and fun. The message is simple and helps kids and parents understand that there are many options for those of us that can't have wheat or gluten. I love that this book is spreading awareness! Both my kids enjoyed this book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that is facing the gluten free challenge.
