Hi, I’m after advice regarding school cookery classes for my 12 year old son who has Coeliac disease and Autism.
Today he had his first lesson and he’s arrived home from school really distressed because some of the children were using regular gluten-containing flour in the classroom. Although he didn’t handle the flour himself it was airborne and he’s saying he feels unwell.
He struggles to express his feelings so he’s not being very clear (he’s very upset at the moment). I am trying to stay calm and level headed but I am unsure if he’s just extremely anxious about the new school year or he’s feeling unwell because of flour in the air.
I suppose what I’m asking is can Coeliac sufferers become ill by breathing in gluten containing flour?
I’ve googled the question but there’s no clear answer!
