Your child needs daily the number of his age in years plus 5 to 10 grams. For example, a 5-year-old would need between 10 and 15 grams of fiber (5 years plus 5 to 10 grams). There are plenty of ways to add fiber to his gluten-free diet by including high-fiber gluten-free grains such as quinoa and brown rice as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables. Not only will your celiac child continue to reap the benefits of a gluten-free diet, but he’ll soon be able to enjoy the healthy advantages of a well-balanced diet high in fiber.
