Helping Children Love Living Gluten-Free!
What is the Cel-Kids Network?
The Celiac Sprue Association (CSA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals with celiac disease and gluten sensitivites worldwide through information, education and research.
In an effort to meet the unique needs of children and youth with celiac disease, the Celiac Sprue Association formed CSA's Cel-Kids Network. Coordinated through each of the 100+ Celiac Sprue Association chapters located across the United States, the Cel-Kids Network provides children and youth with celiac disease opportunities to meet and share experiences with others of their age-group who are also living gluten-free!
Why join the Cel-Kids Network?
Being a part of CSA's Cel-Kids Network allows children to meet others who know how they feel. Along with get-togethers, they learn important things about staying healthy, making smart gluten-free choices and living confidently everyday. It's nice to know that they are not alone in the world with celiac disease and can enjoy gluten-free foods with friends!
What if there isn't a Celiac Sprue Association's Cel-Kids Network in your local chapter?
If you see a need for a Cel-Kids Network chapter, start one yourself! It's really easy! Begin by making a list of activities you would like to do and then contact the national Celiac Sprue Association office toll-free at 877-272-4272. There is someone who can help you get started. They can even contact others in your area that might be interested. By following these simple steps you will be an example to others of the Celiac Sprue Association motto:
Find a local chapter. Look for the Cel-Kids Network Liaison within the chapter contacts.
