    The symptoms of coeliac disease in children typically appear three to five months after first consuming gluten-containing foods. Symptoms may include poor appetite, irritability, vomiting and diarrhoea. If left untreated, coeliac disease can lead to malnutrition, osteoporosis and, particularly worrying in children, stunted growth and development. It is therefore important to introduce a gluten-free diet to your child as soon as they're diagnosed. Phil Vickery has developed 70 scrumptious dishes suitable for children of all ages - from babies to toddlers to school-age kids. Baby recipes include Potato Moussaka and Pink Poached Salmon, while toddlers will smile when fed Minty Peas with Lamb or Lemon Chicken, Sweetcorn and Tarragon. One of the hardest parts of cooking for children on a gluten-free diet can be the pressure to prepare a healthy lunch that is 'just like everyone else's'. You can send your kids off to school with Phil's Quesadilla, Berry Smoothie or Chocolatey Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Treat and they'll be the envy of all their friends.

Nobody in your house has weighing scales? That s OK. All you need in NOSH student books are a few spoons and a mug. Want to see what you are aiming for? There are photos with every recipe, to whet your appetite and inspire you to have a go. Are you still on a tight budget? We have priced up every recipe, so no more surprises at the till in the supermarket. Finished all the recipes in NOSH for Students? Here are a whole heap of new ones to have a go at.Sorry to cause confusion with this book and the previous book NOSH for Graduates. We have now updated the description of this book to explain things a little clearer. This replaces the previous, now discontinued, book NOSH for Graduates. We loved NOSH for Graduates, but it never managed to reach as many people as we would have liked in its previous format. So we decided to substantially revamp the book to make it perfect for our students and VOLUME 2 WAS BORN?! We hope this clears up any confusion. Thanks The NOSH Family.
