Growing up my little sister and mum struggled with celiac disease. Eating food with gluten or wheat in them would cause stomach cramps, diarrhoea, hot and cold sweats and sore joints. Theses are just few symptoms that can occur if you are allergic to wheat or gluten. There wasn’t much knowledge back when they were diagnosed and not much of a variety to buy.

Years have gone by since there diagnosis and now I have two boys of my own who also have celiacs disease. I make there nursery lunches from scratch and all there meals but they miss out when it comes to going out. I took them to Waitrose cafe to be told that they no longer serve gluten free for breakfast or lunch and they didn’t have any gluten free sandwiches in the meal deal either. Yet there was plenty of food for a vegan or vegetarian. All the cooked food had gravy or some sort of wheat/gluten based product in or on it. Why as a store that sells gluten free is there not a menu in the cafe for people with the allergy. It is not hard to separate gluten with none gluten and avoid cross contamination. My boys left upset. There was so many cakes and nice food and they couldn’t eat any of it. 

gps and doctors are diagnosing more people each day with celiacs. Shops should cater for this allergy especially if they sell it and make there own version of gluten free products like Waitrose. 

I would like to change peoples attitude to gluten free. It’s not just a diet like some people think it causes long lasting damage to small intestines for those who have this allergy and is also linked to headaches, weight gain and other problems internally. 

my children love fruit and veg and have a healthy diet but they should still be able to have treats like normal children. My sister, mum and now dad who has recently been diagnosed should also be able to buy a meal deal like a normal person. I don’t want my family or anyone else with the disease feeling left out and not normal.
