    Thanks Kelly for the great information. I flew back home to AZ already so won’t be in Chicago for that event:( It was great to see you at the expo and I couldn’t believe how many people were there. We will be at the Scottsdale AZ expo this weekend. Looking forward to meeting some of our local AZ gf vendors as well as seeing so many others that we met this past weekend:)

    My eight year old daughter was recently diagnosed with celiac disease. She’s been such a trouper about not eating gluten but we’re having trouble with breakfast. She likes eggs and gluten free pumpkin bread but does not like any of the gluten free cereals. She really wants to have the Cookie Crisp Sprinkles which does not have any gluten in the ingredients or a warning about being manufactured in a facility that has wheat like the regular Cookie Crisp cereal but when I called the company, they or course said that they could not guarantee that it was gluten free. I know this is not the healthiest of breakfasts but she eats a lot of fruits, vegetables, nuts and other healthy foods that if I could just give her this cereal for breakfast once in awhile, I know she would be so happy. Does anyone with celiac eat this or could give me some advice as to what to do when a food doesn’t have any wheat/barley/rye but isn’t certified gluten free? I would really appreciate any comments!
