We have mixed views about fast food and GF options. One of the benefits of going GF is that you get back to basics and learn a lot more about food and what is naturally GF & good for you. However, this week Spain launched GF buns in all their McDonald's after working with the spainish Coeliac Society. Many of us know that Finland has long had GF buns and options at McDonald's for ages.
So our question is...what do you think? Are fast food GF options a sign of 'equality' so that Coeliacs get the same options as everyone else in a sense and aren't excluded? Is it important for fast food Coeliacs to be able to stick to a GF and avoid temptation? Or is this all a backward step? Should we focus on healthy GF choices and fast food e.g. with chains like LEON in the UK that are focusing on healthy home cooked style fast food?
We often debate this a lot in the team so we're keen to see what you think.
Tell us your view.
