Celiac disease is treated mainly with the same prescription used several decades ago—gluten restriction from the diet. The precepts of omitting wheat, rye, and barley, however, are considerably more difficult for parents to follow today due to advances in food technology, TV advertising, and changed cooking habits. This little 56 page book, written by a celiac patient's mother, expresses briefly the dilemma of eliminating gluten from a growing child's diet. Mrs. Carpenter has responded to the "Don'ts" prescribed by her physician by assembling over 100 gluten-free recipes which should be very useful to other parents as a positive approach to interpreting dietary restrictions.
