About Gluten-Free Children

I’m Gaby, and I want to welcome you to Gluten-Free Children. If you peeped the logo, you might notice an adventurous little girl with a big personality. That’s my resilient, full-of-life daughter Charlotte, who was diagnosed with Celiac disease in March 2023. 

You might be here because your family has Celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or gluten sensitivity. Let’s be real; feeding littles is HARD. Throw a special diet into the mix, and you may feel like you no longer know how to give your child what they need. 

You’re in good company if you need some support in raising healthy kiddos while living gluten-free. 

The Blog

This blog offers easy-to-understand, science-based nutrition information for gluten-free families. I write about topics related to gluten-free eating and how to use that information realistically for your family. 

Finding content you can trust isn’t always easy. The content includes references to peer-reviewed research articles, academic textbooks, and trustworthy websites (life government or educational institutions).

In the future, I will offer additional resources to help you live a gluten-free life, including recipes, product round-ups, and video content!  

But, for now, all content is written by me, Gaby McPherson MS, RDN, LDN and reviewed by Dahlia Rimmon MS, RDN, LDN.

I’m a Registered Dietitian, freelance writer, and content creator. A little about me, I’ve been a dietitian for nearly nine years.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics with an emphasis in pediatric nutrition and a Master of Science in Medical Dietetics.

My career began in public health, serving many diverse people. I’ve helped many families with kiddos with picky eating, food allergies, constipation, weight gain issues, and more.  I’ve also counseled many individuals with chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

My Feeding Philosophy

I believe:

  • Gluten-free children should be empowered to have an abundance mindset instead of a scarcity mindset. It’s not they HAVE to eat gluten-free; it’s they GET to eat gluten-free so they can grow, gain, and flourish. (this isn’t easy, but it takes continued work).

  • Raising healthy kids requires helping them build healthy relationships with food.

  • Kids should not be forced to eat against their will.

  • Introducing new foods to kids can take time.
