Studies have shown that one of the main reasons why some celiac patients can’t stay gluten-free is that they don’t have a support group to encourage and help them. Being part of a support group can provide emotional and practical advantages to help you and your child succeed in the gluten-free lifestyle. This especially applies to children, as they face many temptations to “cheat” on their gluten-free diet, especially around non-celiac friends. I highly recommend to parents that they get their children to connect to others in the celiac community throughceliac support groups and celiac forums.
