E-News Exclusive
Restaurant Guide for the Gluten-Free Dieter
By David Yeager

Eating healthfully while dining out can be a challenge for many clients, but it’s even more difficult if they happen to be gluten sensitive or gluten intolerant. In honor of National Celiac Disease Awareness Month, Today’s Dietitian compiled a list of 25 restaurants across the country known for their wide variety of gluten-free menu items. This list is based on high consumer ratings from AllergyEats, a free website that lists more than 625,000 allergy-friendly restaurants nationwide.

Some cities, such as New York; Boston; Lake Buena Vista, Florida; and Las Vegas, had several highly rated establishments, but we chose the following restaurants not only for their diverse gluten-free offerings but for their geographic locations. Clients who are looking for gluten-free cuisine will find a little bit of everything on this list. Enjoy!

Field Notes
School Climate Can Affect Overweight Children for Life

Kids can be mean, and school-yard bullying can have serious immediate and long-term effects. One area of increasing concern in this regard is the possibility that overweight or obese children shoulder the brunt of bullying. With childhood obesity rates reaching unprecedented levels, this may translate into even more negative behavior being experienced by today’s kids. It’s also possible that children who are disliked by their peers may respond by becoming less active and more likely to overeat, compounding the issue even further.

It’s a vicious cycle, to say the least. Indeed, some research shows that obese children miss more school days than healthy-weight children. One reason may be because obese kids are unhappy due to being mistreated by other children; they may be avoiding school because of a negative emotional climate in the classroom.
