Educational Video about Food Allergies AND Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease Allergy DVD Video
I’m mostly known for my songs about food allergies, but am also passionate about educating people about celiac disease and intolerances. Have you heard my song “Gluten-Free Blues“? I think there is a lot of confusion out there about the differences, but I also think it’s important to highlight the similarities.

For children, knowing the exact difference between food allergies and intolerances is not essential. Is it fair to expect that a 4-year old knows that anaphylaxis initiates in the immune system, and celiac disease occurs in the digestive system? Of course not. Keeping things simple for kids is the key when educating about such complicated things.

This is why I focus on four key messages that are universal to both conditions when teaching about them to children:

1. No sharing Food

2. Wash your hands before and after you eat

3. Respect for each others differences

4. Speak up and tell an adult if you see someone feeling ill

This type of messaging does not scare kids, yet empowers them to help people with allergies or intolerances.

This is the approach I am taking in my upcoming video “Kyle Dine & Friends” which will help educate children about food allergies, celiac disease, and intolerances.

The Kickstarter campaign to fund it ends on Dec. 21st. Pledge and get a limited edition reward today!
