    Being gluten sensitive is not nothing.

    I would definitely talke to the mum about it and reframe it as a health choice for your daughter.

    Maybe offer to provide some gluten free alternatives for your kid so that it's not an imposition on her to become a short order cook?

      Coeliac is a serious medical condition and the damage it does in the gut is cumulative. It can lead, in later life, to Crohn's disease, diverticulosis/itis (i have this and it's no joke) and having to wear a colostomy bag for the rest of your life. I suggest you get your daughter the full blood test as a first resort, and the biopsy of there is still doubt. She will then have a medical diagnosis and no intolerant person (which this woman, IMHO, is) can say she is just fussy.

      So if your child had a peanut allergy would she give her peanut butter then and watch her die with the resultant anaphylactic response? One would hope not.

        Tell people that you're jewish, and its a Kosher thing; they will construe asking questions about it as anti-semitism.
        "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

          There are many megalomaniacs who's only targets are children.

          this is not a light issue, how you treat the defenseless says too much about your personality and values.

          this person is willing to ignore a child just because they are a child. what else are they capable of.

          Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
