It's that time of year again...

It's Coeliac Awareness Week this week and CoeliacUK are encouraging people to try the Gluten-free for a week challenge to help raise awareness, raise money or simply to support your loved ones who have no choice about being GF!

Why not get your loved ones to try it too - it will help them to understand the practical and emotional side of living on a restricted diet and help them to learn how to cook for you.  Get them to check out my Yes/No foods (lactose products in pink for those who are also lactose intolerant) and Food preparation pages to get them started.  Remember it's really important they understand the issues of cross contamination as well as checking labels and ingredients.  If you are not sure they totally get it, why not cook with them so you can can an eye on what's going on in the kitchen or offer to wash and tidy as they cook.
