I had heard how great Spain was for gluten free food so I thought I would go and take a look before I took the risk of taking my children on holiday there. I couldn’t believe how much better they are over there than in the UK.
My wheat, gluten, dairy and egg free friend came with me as my guinea pig! To our surprise she was not ill once. It was amazing!
The hotel brought her out gluten free bread at each meal time and a range of breakfast treats each morning such as croissants and pastries….you would be very hard pushed to find this in a hotel in the UK!
The ice cream parlours had a range of gluten free ice creams and gluten and dairy free. They had individually wrapped gluten free cones and all the ice cream boards had gluten free ‘sin gluten’ symbols on as standard. It was just brilliant.
Many of the small market shops were stocked with gluten free food. It was so easy to pick up gluten free and dairy free food. Even McDonalds provided gluten free big mac’s my friend was in heaven!
The people in Spain have a fantastic understanding of gluten free and are very aware of coeliac disease.
Hotels and food businesses in the UK can be as clued up as Spain. Food Freedom are here to make that happen by providing the knowledge and understanding.
I am so happy that I have found a holiday destination that I would feel safe taking my children to.
