The article focuses on the gluten-free diet offered at the Rochester, Minnesota School District. The advent of gluten-free diet was influenced by Mary Kay Warner, mother of a child who was diagnosed with celiac disease. Warner approached Sherri Knutson, student nutrition services coordinator for the district, to ask for gluten-free options at school for her daughter. Using advise and research from doctors dietitians, gluten-free meals were created and offered at the school district, allowing children with celiac disease to take part in school lunches.
