I'm Lucy: mother of a coeliac. I've been dealing with the diet since 1996, when my daughter was diagnosed aged 1.
Since then, we've learnt a lot about how to live gluten free, and how to manage the day-to-day issues involved in raising a gluten free child—everything from birthday parties to expeditions, Brownies to school meals.
Whether you are recently diagnosed or been living gluten free for a while, and whether you are a coeliac or caring for one, I hope you'll find something useful here.
Do explore - and if you have questions or comments, please feel free to add them or to contact me direct.
We've been dealing with the gluten free diet for over 20 years now - everything from the day to day niggles to the big political decisions.

Raising Your Coeliac Child is based on 20 years of real-life experience. Lucy’s eldest daughter was diagnosed with coeliac disease as a baby, and the book offers a common-sense approach to dealing with the many issues involved in raising a happy and healthy child on a gluten free diet.
It is aimed at people caring for children who have just been diagnosed with coeliac disease, but would also be helpful for older people who have recently been diagnosed or for health workers supporting the newly diagnosed.
