This weekend the Texas paper The Monitor ran a profile of divorced single dad Fred Cano, who is raising a 2-year-old girl on a gluten-free diet. The article notes that "Each day her father packs her a school lunch of assorted bowls of meat, vegetables and sliced fruit. He also makes sure that her daycare services know what is and isn’t on the menu for Emily." Yet, he says, "It’s hard because sometimes she wants to eat like other kids so badly."

Kudos to Fred and his parents and sister, who together look out for Emily's health--and Happy Father's Day to all the dads who help gluten-free family members (themselves included, of course) maintain healthy diets!

JUST WONDERING Have you helped Heathers?
