Exactly what it says on the tin. Coeliac disease made easy for parents as my child has it too. I had to learn fast, finding out all the information quickly.
You too can learn how to manage your child’s diagnosis quickly and easily with my easy online course.
Need some help in learning how to manage coeliac disease in kids? With your child’s diagnosis, your world begins to spin. It’s like being in the eye of the storm. Everything around you is turning, information is being thrown at you. It’s overwhelming and lonely.
How do you even start?
What is a gluten free diet?
I know what it’s like as I had to learn and understand too.
Where to start?
My child was diagnosed in 2018. A total shock. I’ve learnt to live with over the past 5 years and now help parents to learn quickly and easily with my books and online course. I saw too many people struggling to find information at the beginning. You want to know what to do to help your child.
What is coeliac disease & what do you need to do? Is it just bread, pasta and cake to cut out?
It’s more than cutting out bread, pasta and cake!
When it’s your child, you don’t want them missing out. And you want to learn all you need to know quickly & easily!
What can they have? What can’t they have
Cross contamination? What is that?
How to read food labels and what to look for
There’s a lot to take in.
I read, I learnt and saw parents struggle.
Why create books and courses on Coeliac Disease?
I wrote & published the book last September 2022, but before that, I created an online course, for parents to work through at their own pace. You start and stop whenever you like. Download it to your computer, and you can refer to it as you go. It gives you access to me, my knowledge 1-1 taking you through all the information you need to know FAST!
All this was a crazy idea. What did I know? But now I have 5 years experience of helping my daughter. Living a gluten free life in a coeliac world. My original E-book I wrote then put it away. Who’d want that? I quietly put it online. I sold a few. It helped parents. I got braver, I rewrote it and put it on Amazon in December 2023. I’m a regular mum who had to learn & wanted to make it easier for other parents struggling. It is now helping parents all over the world.
I find that totally AMAZING!
Both books are now on Amazon. Or, you can get them direct from me in a book bundle. Saving you over £5 buying both books together – one for parents Coeliac Disease and your Child – What every parent needs to know and one for your child Coeliac Survival Guide for Kids helping kids learn fast to be confident in a fun and easy way.
If you can’t buy it direct in Australia/New Zealand, you can download it – click here!
I’d been so focused on the books that I forgot about the course until I was revamping the website. Really? Oh, yes!
I created an online course, like an intimate workshop. Same thing as the book, I didn’t say I’d done it, I kept quiet, small. Enough of that! Let’s go big! And here it is! Helping parents like me and you.
How can this course help you? It clearly outlines why you need to help your child and how. You need to learn what to do, how to adapt and keep your child safe.
The course walks you through all the steps. At your own pace.
What does gluten free really mean
Learn to read labels
Home – create a safe space
Gluten free diet
Social & family events
You don’t want your child missing out, feeling excluded. It’s a new way of life, much to learn for them and you. They’re shocked too when diagnosed and you have to help them. My book for kids can do that, helping give them their power back, making learning fun and opening up conversations.
I put all of my knowledge into this course, to help guide you through the early stages. It covers different topics, helping you through the process over 90m. You can stop and start when you like.
You’ll understand & know what you are looking for, how to read labels confidently and feel confident in knowing how to manage cross contamination going forward.
I’m a regular mum with a coeliac child. I’m not a medical expert, but I had to find my way, find out information, like you’re doing if your reading this. There wasn’t anything that spoke to me as a mum, everything was adult focused. Being a mum means I know how you feel and that you want to do the best for your child and their coeliac disease diagnosis.
You can stop and start. It’s one video, with me giving you the best of my knowledge to date, to help get you where you need to be.
Download your copy today by clicking on the button to start straight off, making your life that little bit easier as you adapt to a gluten free lifestyle.
You can choose the course for £49.99 as it is or add the book bundle for £75.00. Books are signed and sent by me, saving you more. UK book offer only – but if you’re further afield, drop me an email or DM. I’m sure I can work something out.

When your child is undergoing diagnosis for coeliac disease, you start looking to see what you need to do.
You begin to learn you need to cut out gluten. That should be easy right? That’s just cake, bread and pasta. Easy?
Coeliac disease is more than just removing those three categories. Gluten is in many grains, foods, drinks, sweets and chocolate.
You need to know what you are looking to exclude, how to read food labels, and most of all minimise & manage the risk of cross contamination.
My daughter was diagnosed in 2018. A total shock. We had leaflets but they weren’t on how to help a child. They were for adults. Parenting a coeliac child is a little different. And there began my ‘helping parents help their coeliac child’ journey.
Starting your coeliac journey
Depending on when they are diagnosed, you’ve school to consider, birthday parties, holidays, eating out and sleepovers. All on a new gluten free diet.
It’s all encompassing and hard work. It affects them and it affects you, as you as the parent will carry most of the load.
I saw parents struggling to get the information they needed in ONE place. I’d learnt, spent my time telling others how to do it, so wrote it down and got it on Amazon last December. Not bad for someone with no experience in writing a book, but I’ve plenty of experience in having a gluten free child. I just wanted to start helping parents help their coeliac child.

Writing a book to help parents like me
If you need to know where to start, have someone speak to you from the pages of a book, understand that it’s overwhelming at the beginning, then you need my book. It tells you you’re not alone, guides you through practical information so you can start your journey with a bit more confidence, understanding and know I’ve got your back, wherever you are in the world. As James says in his full review on Amazon (& it was my aim to do so) in the book, “it’s like a hug from within a book”.
However, sadly my book isn’t available in Australia or New Zealand due to me not choosing ‘premium paper’ to print on. But, it should be orderable via a book shop as it’s on the ‘extended distribution list’.
To cover you in the far out reaches, I’ve set it up now as a download here, the same as the print version, and you can read it on your PC or phone. Grab a notebook to make notes, and let’s get you less stressed & overwhelmed, confident and ready for your new life long challenge. And it is a challenge, as each year brings different changes as your child grows, changes school, friendships etc. But, with the right information to hand, YOU will be ready for them as you get to grips with the disease.
Come follow me
Find me on Instagram (where I am more nowadays. & I hated Instagram when I started out!), Facebook or dare I say it TikTok!
My inbox is always open. Connect with me on Instagram & send me a message with any questions. No question is ever too silly, and it helps with providing more material.
My book will help make it all easier for you to make the changes & you’ll know you’re not alone. That’s key at the start of the journey as it is and does feel very lonely.
Printable guides – How to help your child go gluten free easily with our reference guides
You’ve got the diagnosis, leaflets from the Consultant/Dietitian (hopefully), info on Coeliac UK and then you are left to head home and start thinking about how you are going to manage & help your child start their gluten free coeliac journey.
And that quite frankly is a little overwhelming! I know, as I’ve done it too. 4yrs ago I drove my daughter home from her Consultant’s appointment, putting on a brave face & thinking to myself, how am I going to get this under control. How am I going to manage?
I did, and you can too.
But, as I researched and looked to see what I needed to do, there wasn’t a lot that focused specifically on children, how to help them and to help the parents get it all sorted & under control.
And now there is. As well as baking kits, I’ve created and written an e-book from a mum’s point of view that will help guide you in your journey, help you negotiate and navigate the early days whilst giving you the confidence to believe you can do it. As you have to, for your child’s best health.
I created the printable guides, as I wanted something to put on the fridge. Helping me but anyone who came to visit that went in our fridge. So they knew not to touch my gluten free child’s supplies.
It does what it says on the tin, with 10 printable guides for What you need to know, Reading Labels, a poster for quick and easy reference & how to remember what to avoid as well as other guides to help you in the beginning.
Download them to your computer or phone. Print them out, give them to friends so that they know easily.
It’s what Gluten Free Little Cook is all about. Making life a little bit easier, because having a Coeliac child is hard enough.
All yours for £9.99. Making life just that little easier.
How do your record what you child is eating in the early days? If your child has just been diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, then you’ll know about all the things that they can’t eat. But what should they be eating & how much?
This Coeliac Disease Food Diary for Kids is going to help you out, giving you a reference point, diary pages to record what your child eats and notes for your records too.
Your child’s dietitian should be able to provide you with all the information, but in this handy e-book guide, you’ve a reference as to what to look for, how much to eat and an easy way to record it all.
Calcium and Iron are two important food groups that your child needs. Coeliac UK state that a child needs 1000mg per day. Does your child get their full intake?
Coeliac Disease – what do we eat now?
I’ve been there. I was like you but don’t think for a minute we manage to eat everything of my charts or eat the rainbow. Far from it, but, I do my best.
My daughter was diagnosed 4 years ago & there’s a lot to take in and a lot to do.
This 90+pg e-Book contains:
Top Tips you need
Child Record Sheet
Overview on reading labels
What does GF mean/what to exclude
Top label reading tips
Our printout poster for ‘what you need to know’
Good Foods & Daily Needs
And a 3 months diary records with a weekly check on calcium levels.
Download it for £14.99
Once, I was exactly where you are now. You can do this. You have to do this.
And if you need more – you can grab both books in a bundle in the shop for £30.00

Coeliac disease? When your child is diagnosed with this horrible disease, it’s a bit of a shock. You take it in but then wonder what you need to do. Having a coeliac child isn’t easy, there’s lots to learn and many challenges. But, like anything, once you know what you need to do, you can go forward with the knowledge your child will be better for it.
It’s ok to feel sad, frustrated & angry too. That’s how I felt in the beginning when my child was diagnosed – a total surprise – and one I wasn’t expecting.
So what does having a child with coeliac disease mean and what do you have to know and do.
One, it’s not an allergy – it’s an auto immune disease. A reaction by your child’s body to gluten.
Two, it’s the only disease you can control by diet alone. That in itself is amazing.
But there are many other caveat’s with this disease to factor in:
How you cook
What you cook
Minimising risk of cross contamination
Overwhelming and confusing isn’t it.
Need some help getting your head around it all?
The level of help varies throughout the UK. We were lucky. We’d a GP who understood we mustn’t give up gluten until diagnosed.
A referral to a dietitian and consultant within 8 weeks of diagnosis. A folder of leaflets.
I scoured the internet. Read lots. Joined Facebook groups.
Anything to help my child.
Over the past 5 years, I’ve seen that some don’t get that help. They don’t get the leaflets (that you lose & can’t find anyway!!) or guidance on how to start their coeliac journey.
I saw that parents like me struggled to find out the information. We needed simple all in one guidance. From a mum’s point of view.
Me? Write a book? Are you quite mad?
I decided to do something about it and put everything I’ve learnt and more into the hardcopy book & this e-book. But what did I know about writing a book.
Nothing. So I learnt. It’s all mine, from the front to the back. But with coeliac disease, there’s lots out there for adults if you look. But for parents with children? There isn’t a lot.
It’s a big learning curve.
One, which is lonely, frustrating & overwhelming.
And yes, it’s hard. I won’t lie about that. I make it look easy now but I too have days that are just painful. The planning is constant. But I’m nearly 6 years down the road. The very beginning is confusing and complicated.
I didn’t know anyone else with the disease or anyone with a child that had it. I’d no idea where to go for help when we started out. I used the internet & googled, I read. There’s no need to struggle, It’s about getting the right information.
I’ll help you get through the storm at the beginning, when you are finding your feet to a secure place where you know what you are doing, what you are looking for, how to look for it and how to negotiate almost anything.
I share our story with you so far, stories from other mum’s who have been in the same situation as us.
