Gluten-Free Holiday Giveaway Galore x10!

I’ve teamed up with 9 other gluten-free bloggers to help Katie Chalmers, author and illustrator of the new children’s book, Mommy, What Is Celiac Disease? give away 10 holiday gift bags filled with all sorts of gluten-free treats and trinkets, including a signed copy of her book!

The following bloggers will also be hosting The Gluten-Free Holiday Giveaway Galore x10!, which will run from Wednesday, December 1 thru Wednesday, December 15th, 2010:

But before I give you the giveaway details, please allow me to tell you about this wonderful book!

Mommy, What Is Celiac Disease? has a refreshingly positive message throughout and the pictures are simply stunning.  Katie began writing the book when one of her twin daughters, Morgan, was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2008, just a few months after Katie herself was diagnosed with celiac.

Morgan, the inspiration for the little girl in the book, is a silent celiac, meaning she had no obvious physical symptoms to indicate something very serious was occurring inside her little body.  Morgan was only diagnosed after Katie’s doctor suggested she have her twin daughters screened (to read more of Katie and Morgan’s story, click here).

I read the book from two perspectives.  One, as the celiac mom of a celiac child and the other, as a little girl who had silent celiac disease too, but wasn’t lucky enough to be diagnosed at such a young age, before the more serious health consequences had a chance to grab hold of me.  Oh how I wish I could have been as lucky as the little girl in this book! :-D

The story unfolds as Mother and daughter are taking a walk in the park on a beautiful autumn day.  Mommy needs to tell her little girl she has just been diagnosed with celiac disease and that life is going to be changing just a bit.  Without skipping a beat, mom comfortingly reassures her daughter that everything is going to be okay, as she creatively explains what celiac disease is and how gluten hurts her little body even if it doesn’t make her look or feel sick when she eats it.  Mom goes on to emphasize all the wonderful aspects that a major lifestyle change like this can bring, like having fun in the kitchen!

What I liked most though about this unique new book for kids with celiac, is how Katie touches on a very important issue, one that is so near and dear to my heart, the importance of inclusion and support from our loved ones. Katie offers some GREAT advice for family and friends of a newly diagnosed child, whom she refers to as ‘Supporters,’ on her website and I think it is a must-read for everyone, click here to go directly to the page.

I read the book to my gluten-free kiddos and I could tell by the look in my 7 year old’s eyes, and the questions it prompted from him, that the book helped Sam better understand how gluten affects his body (he loved how Katie illustrated what the small intestine looks like!).

    Hi Heidi,

    Are you not allowing people to enter your contests anymore unless they "twitter or facebook"? You used to always have an option to enter because you were a follower of your blog. Not all of us are interested in twittering or facebooking. Are those words(:.

    • Hi Cindy!

    Good Morning! I don't twitter or FB anymore either–I spend enough time reading Gfree blogs and working my regular job as a Newborn nurse/staying current there and helping my husband with our local business…anyhow…I am sharing this with all my local celiac friends I am making (there are more than I would have ever imagined! SO great for my son to meet them, we are in a small town) Heidi, I know I have said this before, but I mean it, your blog has been such a help to us, so thank you thank you! Hope this might count–word of mouth is powerful too! :) Merry Christmas all!

    • Samantha,

      I just updated the list of entry opportunities to include one that does not involve social media…that was a big oversight on my part, please forgive me. I published at 2am and obviously wasn't thinking clearly, LOL! :-D

      And yes, word of mouth is a very powerful tool, I really appreciate you and your help getting the word out on this great giveaway for kiddos!

  34. Jennifer R. says:

    I would love to win this giveaway because I work at an early intervention program that provides services to kids with developmental disabilities, many who are GF due to autism or celiac/gluten intolerance. I am gluten intolerant, and I know it’s hard enough to deal with eating GF as an adult. I always feel really bad for the kiddos that have to deal with it, and many families that live in this rural area are low income and don’t have access to transportation to get food at the nearest Sprouts or Whole Foods which are 40 miles away. I’d love to give this to a family who really needs it this Christmas!

  35. Rebecca says:

    I have a four year old son who suffers from a gluten intolerance as well as several other food allergies and this looks like a wonderful boook to share with him and his little brother. He oftern asks me why he can't be like other kids…maybe this book would provide him with a bit more understanding and he could also share it with his friends. Again love love love your blog!

  36. Deanna says:

    I would love to read this book as well as read to my 7 yr old.

    Thanks

  41. What a wonderful resource this book would be for a child! This subject is complicated even for adults to understand. I'm so glad I follow your blog, Heidi, because you've helped me to be aware of so much more than I knew before…and where else would I find a glutadoodle???

  42. Kristen says:

    I'd like to win because I'm newly diagnosed and still learning about what products are out there and which are the best!

  43. Sarah says:

    I would love to win this giveaway. There are sooo many reasons. For me, I want the resources. There have been 5 people in my family that has been diagnosed with CD and we are all trying to learn and support each other. Getting the book would be amazing. We could pass them back and forth. And especially for little Allison who is having the hardest time understanding why she can't have certain things at her preschool, I feel like the children's book would be ideal.

  44. I'd like to win this giveaway so I can sample new gluten-free treats before buying them in the store :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  45. Susan says:

    I would like to win this contest because as a fairly new gluten free dieter, I have a hard time finding products that taste good and recipes.

    I'm interested in the giveaway because I would like a copy of the book. Myself, my two children, and my mom are all gluten free. My son is silent. I'll probably buy the book anyway but freebies are always great. I'm also curious about several of the products. I don't buy many packaged goods because of their cost and leeriness (through 20 years of experience) that they will be worth it.

  63. Meg says:

    I would love to win b/c I found out last year (one week before my wedding) that I had celiacs. I'm still learning and trying new products. It's hard to buy new GF products just to try them, b/c I'm worried that I'll waste my money. this would be a great way to try a new product and perhaps add it to my normal shopping list!

  64. Sarah says:

    I would love to win this for my 2 year old son, since he was recently diagnosed with Celiac!

  65. Cindy says:

    Thanks for making the change, Heidi! I would love to win this contest because I would LOVE to have the book to read to my preschool classes so they could better understand why their teacher is not able to eat the snacks they bring in.

    • Hi Nicole!

      Thank you so much for taking advantage of the bonus opportunities but I will need you to enter a separate comment for each separate task you completed. At the close of the giveaway, each comment box has it's own unique number. The random number generator will give me a number and the winner will be the person with the corresponding comment box number.

      Did I make any sense with that awkward explanation? :-D

      Sorry for the inconvenience!

  79. Colleen Garringer says:

    I would like to win a gift bag so I can try the goodies out on my 3-year old grandaughter who has Celiac's. We almost lost her last year….she was hospitalized…. "failure to thrive"…severely mal-nurished. Finally they pinpointed the problem – Celiacs. Now she is doing fantastic because we stick to a very strict diet. But…being only 3 years old….she is very picky about food so her options are limited. I really want to introduce her to some tasty gluten free foods but….that's hard to do. Your sampler would really help. Thanks for this opportunity to win a bag@

  80. Stephanie says:

    I'd love to win all this great stuff to help stock my pantry, as well as get me prepared for helping my future kids through the transition I'm sure they'll be faced with someday. What an awesome giveaway!

    I would like to win this gift bag for my 3 year old daughter. She was diagnosed with Celiac disease at 2 after spending 5 days at the children's hospital being failure to thrive. We went home on a feeding tube because she stopped eating due to the pain food caused her. Now that she is totally gluten free she is doing great, I feel the book "Mommy, what is Celiac Disease?" would be perfect for her right now! Thanks for this opportunity!

  88. Melissa says:

    Thanks for the chance

  90. Clarissa Shackelford says:

    I submitted the social networking things yesterday, but wanted to add the "why I would like to win" entry today.

    I am newly diagnosed with Celiacs. I am in my 40s. I know a diagnosis at my age is less common. I had mild symptoms most of my life, so it was misdiagnosed my entire life (as far as my mom can tell I had symptoms when I was a baby, but they were clueless… finally rice cereal helped me put weight on! lol)

    Anyway, I have a little daughter. I am not sure if she will ever get a diagnosis becuase we are now a gluten free household. Hopefully she will never have to suffer the symptoms of Celiac if she does have it… since she' being raised to avoid gluten altogether.

    The book sounds like a great educational tool, and we are always seeking out new gluten free treats! I just made my first gluten free cake over the Thanksgiving Holiday and I am feeling like a real person again! There is life beyond those 5 "safe" foods I found to begin with! :)

    Thanks for the fun contest and now I have a lot of new blogs to explore!

    I would love to win this give away, because as an insanely poor medical student it is very, very hard for me to try new GF products. Due to my lack of free time, it is so wonderful when I find an easy to make product that is also GF!! Winning this giveaway would be amazing, because it would give me the opportunity to try some new products that I otherwise wouldn't be able to.

    I would love to win this giveaway for my sister in law. She was diagnosed with Celiacs a couple years ago and she has really struggled with the diagnosis. She has experienced depression, anxiety and plain old frustration. We have tried to support her as best as possible, but this would be fun to give her to show that we understand what she is going through and that we want to help.

    I would love to win this prize to give to my 2 year old. He was diagnosed with celiac disease when he was 15 months old.

  155. for the Gluten-Free Holiday Giveaway Galore x10. I am really hoping to win the contest because I have a 17 year old daughter that was just diagnosed allergic to wheat. She is so beautiful but was struggling mentally and physically to the point of me not knowing how to help her. We are so thankful to finally know what was causing it. After taking her off all gluten, her face is clear and bright and her smile has returned. You can see pictures of her on my blog. http://whatsfordinner-momwhatsfordinner.blogspot…. I have always baked and cooked, but learning all about gluten-free is new for me. This win would be a big boost in supplying what my daughter needs to stay healthy.

  168. Kim Russo says:

    I want to win this prize because my children have gluten intolerance and it is hard to explain why they can not have it, that we are not punishing them, etc. by changing the way they eat. This looks like an awesome way to try and show them.

    My mother and I are just newly diagnosed with CD. Since my mother is on a very limited budget and cannot afford to buy gf foods, so she eats very plain and simply. I would like to win it so she could experience gf foods and expand her menu. Also it would help us understand CD better.

  172. This is great! Those snacks all look (and sound) wonderful and I know my kiddos would be happy to have some yummy snacks they can actually eat.

  173. April says:

    What a great giveaway. It's great to see all the attention given to celiac disease! Keep up the great work :)

  174. April says:

    Thanks for offering this great giveaway! I would like to win this prize because as a Celiac for 10 years, I am always looking to try new gf products. I would love to share reviews of some of these products with the Las Vegas Celiac Support Group.

  175. Carol King says:

    I'm glad to hear about this book, My 5 year old was dx 2 years ago after I was. He had seemed fine until we went gluten free at home and then my Ex was still feeding him gluten, he suddenly started having symptoms after visits with Daddy. We have struggled against a lot of misinformation from the Daddy camp and I think this book would be so helpful for my little guy!

    I have liked Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom and Mommy what is Celiac Disease on Facebook

  176. Dena says:

    I would love to win this to get a chance to try a new item with my family, or a new book! Either way, it's all good to me. My 9 year old son would definately appreciate the book.

  177. Christy says:

    I would love to win this giveaway because my 10 year old was recently diagnosed and the rest of us are awaiting testing. With a minimal budget for food already, I have no idea how we are going to make this new gf life work but have no choice. This giveaway would be such a blessing to our family.

    We've been gf for 3 years now (myself and my four girls are Celiac). This contest is awesome! Would love to win it, since five out of the six people in our house are gf…we spend a lot maintaining a gf diet. This would help out a lot! I wish everyone who entered 'good luck' as most of us know a gf diet is expensive. Happy holidays everyone!

    Hi,

    I just read the article about Katie's book that was printed in The Buffalo News. I live in a small town about 30 miles south of Buffalo. My youngest daughter is 7 and was just diagnosed with celiac disease in November. When she was 2, she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She has been on an insulin pump since she was 4 and is doing great! She had no symptoms of celiac, but, her routine blood work done by her diabetes doctor showed the markers for celiac. After the upper endoscopy, we knew for sure. We met with a nutritionist, and things are going very well. It is more work for sure, but it helps us to all be healthier! Our other 3 children had blood work done to test for celiac…and my second daughters(she'll be 11 on 01-01-11) results came back positive. She will be meeting with a GI doctor on Dec. 22nd, I'm sure this will be to schedule an upper endoscopy. She cried at first when we told her, but then realized this is something that would bring her and her sister closer together. I would love to win this giveaway to surprise my girls with some goodies!

  190. Susan says:

    My daughter is 5 and has celiac. She is getting used to having to bring a cupcake and pizza to parties and not being able to eat or play with things other kids have.

    I follow adv of a gluten free mom on facebook I've liked the book on Facebook and I shared a post on my wall about the book as well :)

  191. Trish says:

    My 7 year old was diagnosed with Celiac disease last January (was in the hospital Dec 28th diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes)

    She is a terribly picky eater and I stopped working this past year to manage her diseases. I would love for her to be able to try all of these products!

    Merry Christmas!
