How do you increase gluten-free awareness and make your gluten-sensitive child feel special among his non-gluten-sensitive friends and relatives? Invite company over for baking gluten-free cookies. His friends will enjoy the gluten-free cookies and can bring some home for their own families. The praise his friends will give over the cookies and the baking experience will make your child feel just like non-gluten-sensitive children. As part of my gluten-free advocacy activities, I host regular monthly cupcake parties, inviting gluten-free families from the community, usually mothers and their celiac or gluten-intolerant children. You can also host a gluten-free party and invite other families, allowing your gluten-sensitive child to meet and bond with other gluten-sensitive children.
