The NFCA set a goal to raise $200,00 by Oct. 31, and they still need $24,000 to reach their goal. They do wonderful work for the celiac community, and with these funds they will:
- Train schools, colleges & hospitals in gluten-free food preparation.
- Work with the FDA on gluten-free labeling regulations.
- Educate manufacturers about best practices in food production.
- Expand Kids Central, NFCA’s online hub for gluten-free kids & parents.
The new Kids Central program has awesome kid-centric content for the younger celiac audience. When you visit www.CeliacCentral.org/kids, you’ll now find an option to choose the Kids or Parents side.
The Kids side is geared specifically for younger fans, with recipes, product reviews and stories written for kids, by kids. There’s also a Gluten-Free Homeroom, which arms kids with the knowledge and tools to make their needs known, even when you’re away. The Pep Talks section features inspiring notes and quick tips from adults who know what it’s like to be gluten-free.
On the Parents side, they’ve added new sections for Articles on parenting a gluten-free child and Research from the pediatric field. You can also find links to kid-friendly gluten-free recipes and product reviews.
This is a great new resource for families! Check it out today, and if you are able, help support the NFCA.
