      The Everyday Wheat-free & Gluten-free Cookbook

      by Michelle. Berriedale-Johnson

      Coeliacs are people who suffer from a sensitive reaction to gluten, which is the protein found in wheat and rye. Similar substances are found in barley and oats.;Since gluten damages the lining of the small intestine of coeliacs, it makes their ability to absorb adequate nutrients from food difficult, which results in severe illness resembling malnutrition. Coeliacs may be acutely ill with weight loss, tiredness, lethargy and breathlessness.;The only treatment which can rectify a coeliac condition is a gluten-free diet. A coeliac must not eat any food which contains flour or wheat, barley or rye in any form. Ths means excluding bread, biscuits, crispbreads, cakes, pastry, pasta, breadcrumbs, semolina and food cooked in batter. Flour is also an ingredient in many tinned, packaged and processed foods as well as ready meals. A gluten-free diet can therefore pose major difficulties for the coeliac.;This recipe book offers 200 recipes using special gluten-free flours, breads and pasta now available on the market, many of which coeliacs can obtain on a doctor's prescription.

      by Wyndham. Boobier

      How nice it would be to find a book about children's nutrition that was written for parents by a parent.

Written by a father and nutritionist with over five years experience giving lectures on nutrition and health promotion to parents and children of all ages, this is such a book. There is no claim for it to be the most comprehensive 'text' on nutrition, but it is written for parents and carers of children who are truly concerned about their health. Contents include: Diet and Health - the Basic Building Blocks Vitamins Requirements of Pre-School Children Minerals Healthy Eating for School-Aged Children Physical Activity Healthy Eating for Adolescents Reading Food Labels Healthy Eating - The Balanced Diet Diabetes - Some Basics.
