Celiac Disease Awareness Month Activity

This is the first of many Celiac Disease Awareness Month Activity ideas for each of us to use to help promote awareness of Celiac Disease during October.

I imagine those of you out there with school age Celiac children that Gluten Free Options during School lunches can be difficult.

To help promote Celiac Disease awareness and to improve the School Lunch situation, please see the following post from The Beyond Rice Cakes Blog which is written by Vanessa Maltin who is the director of programming and communications for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA). In this post, there is a link (which I also included here) to submit your comments/input to the USDA which is revising the Child Nutrition Act in 2009.

The deadline for submission is October 15, 2008.
