I'm leaving for Italy tomorrow, and was VERY nervous about food until I found out these really awesome yet surprising facts.
1- Every kid gets tested for Celiac in kindergarten.
2- Pharmacies are REQUIRED to carry gluten free food.
3- The government gives you a little extra money every month to buy gluten free food.
4- Schools must have gluten free lunch options.
So, learning this, I am beginning to wonder what the Italians would think of Disney channel's Jessie episode when the little annoying boy Steward has Celiac disease and is laughed at ON THE SHOW. After many people got angry, Disney channel deleted some scenes and put it back. Though, some parts are borderline rude.
There is another blog that has more information on this episode, including the deleted scenes. I will include the link below:
