Food is our fuel, our power, and our lifeline. And for people with celiac disease, it really is our medicine, too. For students with celiac disease, getting a safe, healthy source is extremely important, but the process also can be extremely challenging. Fortunately, as celiac disease becomes more prevalent, schools are taking notice and beginning to more readily offer accommodations, gluten-free food choices, and—in some states—even entirely gluten-free school lunch menus.
Getting your child’s school to take these steps can be tricky. While the details and considerations can vary by state, school, and even grade, the key steps to successful, safe, and healthy gluten-free eating for students remain the same regardless of age.
