Gluten Free Kids Interview Profiles are geared toward giving gluten free kids a voice. They offer insight for parents by becoming conversation starters and may offer some comfort and camaraderie to other gluten free children. This interview, like all of the Gluten Free Kids Interview Profiles, was performed through an online form. All answers are in the child’s own words and recorded in a way that protects both the integrity of the answers and the identity of the child.
