Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder, which is mainly caused by intolerance to gluten. Medically also known as celiac sprue, children who are sensitive to gluten can’t eat the protein, which is found in wheat, rye, and barley and other grains derived from them. In young children, who have celiac disease, gluten damages the villi - a projection that absorbs nutrients from the food and is found in the small intestine. And when the villi are damaged, a child can also become malnourished. Thus, in order to keep your child's immune system healthy, today we have jotted down a few ways through which one can teach kids how to go gluten free. *Images courtesy: © Thinkstock photos/ Getty Images
