Meet Lindsey

Lindsey is 8 years old and has gluten sensitivity.

8-year-old Lindsey isn't the only one in her family who eats gluten-free food. Her mom and twin sister are gluten-free, too!

How many years have you been gluten-free?

Less than 1.

What symptoms did you have?

I had constipation, painful stomachaches every day, and I was losing weight.

How do you feel now?

I haven't had one stomachache since I started the gluten-free diet back in April, and I've gained all my weight back, plus a few more pounds.

What's the hardest part about being gluten-free?

The only thing I miss is regular bread and butter.

What's the best part about being gluten-free?

That I get to eat the same stuff as my mom and twin sister, who have celiac disease. And we try a lot of new recipes!

What's your favorite thing to do?

Irish dancing, soccer and softball.
