Abstract: Lifelong compliance to gluten free diet is a prerequisite for maintaining well-being of children with celiac disease. It becomes very difficult to restrict wheat based food items from the North Indian diets predisposing children to micronutrient and micronutrient deficiencies and may impair physical and cognitive growth of these children. A cross-sectional study was carried out among 40 children (5-12 years) already diagnosed with celiac disease and were following gluten free diet from last three months. The data was collected from a health facility at Gurugram, Haryana catering to children residing in nearby villages. Anthropometric measurements and 24-hour recall was used to assess nutritional status of the children. Feeding behavior was recorded on a pretested questionnaire. One-fifth of the children were underweight, one-fourth were stunted and all but one had normal BMI [1]. The intakes of all food groups were inadequate by the children as compared with balanced diet [2]. Comparison with the RDA [2] indicated that the intake of all nutrients expect protein, fat and calcium were inadequate. Regular diet counseling would help in alleviating symptoms, improvement in nutritional status and quality of life of children with celiac disease.
