You may remember my discussing the need to explain to school about the requirements of the gluten free diet, to make it easier for my daughter to go on school trips – or other trips without me.

I thought I’d provide the letter that I sent before her most recent school trip, in case it is useful to anyone else. I wanted to explain to school not only what she could and couldn’t eat, but also what the likely effects would be.

Do feel free to download, cut and paste and generally reuse for your own purposes, but bear in mind that this was written for the UK, so you might need to double-check some of the detail.
