On The Wings of Hope: Can be found at http://www.onthewingsofhope.com/AboutUsWOH.htm.
Recently, I came across a wonderful company. This company caught my attention with their wonderful story. The Story was a Grandmother concerned for the health of her Grandchild. Joyce goes into detail about the shock of Aviah, her Granddaughter, being diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
They began by thinking with the term “Don’t feed Us.” This original thinking was changed after research and developing coping skills. You can learn more of their story at http://www.onthewingsofhope.com/AboutUsWOH.htm.
This family has developed a vast array of products to help families and individuals cope with Celiac Disease. They even helped 12 yr. old Megan, another granddaughter write an instructional book. Their literature is informative and filled with correct facts. It is well researched and should be in the hands of every parent or grandparent of a Celiac. Their cookbook is filled with a great assortment of recipes. We have been amazed at the quality of the ones we have tried.
Along with their literature they have wonderful safety products. They have a insulated food carrier or lunch bag. The outside clearly warns of food allergies. This should prevent any mishaps. This will also prevent the danger of cross-contamination.
I have been thoroughly impressed with the good quality products from this company. They have a wholesome story and are there to serve the community. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
