As Celiac Disease continues to get diagnosed more and more often around the world, one trend that is really growing is more and more children are being diagnosed at really young ages and need to live on a gluten free diet. This of course means that in addition to the normal worries of these children day-to-day lives, they will also have to deal with staying gluten free while in school.
