Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this research project was to create a children's story cookbook that addresses the dietary adaptions to avoid gluten and wheat for children diagnosed with celiac. Children's literature has a need for a cookbook that will have recipes appealing to children and have pictures that will make the recipes/ food more visually attractive. The book also included child friendly directions so that a parent can assist a child in preparing the food. The story cookbook also told the story of a young child who has celiac, who is learning to eat differently and to adapt to her disease. Children can learn how to cook easy gluten-free recipes and learn about their disease from the personal story of a child with celiac. The author's niece, was the "story-teller" of the book. This can help children put a face and success story to their own disease.
