Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that if not treated right can damage the villi in the small intestine. The proper way to treat the disease is to eat foods that do not contain any Wheat, Barley, Rye or Oats.
If you been eating gluten free for a while, experts recommend taking vitamin supplements to make up for some vitamin and mineral missing in some gluten free foods.
This is because many gluten free substitutes are not enriched and have lower amounts of the vitamin found in many wheat-based products.
When looking for vitamins, make sure to look for high concentration of the following:
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin D
We have been using Dinosaurs MultiSaurus chewable. It's available at Whole Foods, Amazon, and other Online stores. The good thing about these is that they taste like candy and they are gluten free. Kids will be happy to get their daily treats
We add more fiber in our diet by taking fiber chews, which taste exactly like gummies. Who doesn't like gummies?
If you're eating gluten-free, make sure to add vitamin and minerals to your diet. Just double check the labels, make sure that its gluten free. (We were surprised how many name brand multi-vitamins are not Celiac friendly)
