TAGS and GIG® Present:
"Way to be Gluten-Free"
Kids' Day Camp

February 13, 2010
10:00 am - 2:00 pm (9:30 check-in)
Cost: $15 per child

PCC Natural Market, Greenlake
7504 Aurora Avenue North, Seattle, WA

This fun and practical workshop is designed to empower kids with gluten intolerance to participate in meal planning and preparation. Kids will learn which foods contain gluten, where to look on labels for gluten information and what key words to look for, and then they will apply that knowledge by shopping for gluten-free ingredients in the PCC store. Our goal is to help kids work towards self-sufficiency and to become proactive in their own care.

This workshop is intended for children aged 6 to 10 years old. Parents are welcome.

Schedule:
Introduction (10 minutes)
Lesson: What is Gluten and Where Do I Find It? (15-20 minutes)
Where's the Gluten? Label reading activity. (30 minutes)
Gluten-Free Shopping Spree -- Kids go on a scavenger hunt in the store for gluten-free lunch ingredients. (30-45 minutes)
When Do We Eat? -- Kids prepare a delicious gluten-free lunch... and then eat it! Includes free discussion time and clean-up. (60-90 minutes)
Gluten-Free Bingo -- A twist on Bingo that teaches kids to identify gluten in foods. (20-30 minutes)

"Way to Be Gluten-Free" will be conducted by TAGS teen volunteers (Teen Advocates with Gluten Sensitivities) and Cynthia Kupper, executive director of Gluten Intolerance Group of North America (GIG). To register for the workshop, visit our website at www.gluten.net, call (253) 833-6655, or email Rebecca.Powell@gluten.net. Space is limited to 15 kids. Cost: $15 per child.
