The Kid Start Wellness Foundation is a San Diego focused non-profit organization. We provide tools to empower our school-aged children diagnosed with celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders through expert education and engaging activities.
Our quarterly activities, such as a Halloween Party and Lasertag, include a short gluten-free diet reinforcing quiz with prizes, gluten-free treats, and expert-led workshops and cooking classes designed just for school-aged kids and teens.
Our vision is to support and inspire the San Diego community's successful diagnosis and management of children's gluten-related disorders.

I thought we needed something to bring us closer together and more "social media" friendly! It is the same name - "Enjoying Life Without Gluten". Please go to the page and "like" us! I just got it up so photos will be coming. Please feel free to offer any advice!"
