Every awareness week, Coeliac UK launches their new campaign for the year - this year it is the gluten freevolution!
So what is it all about?
It's aiming to get experiences
of eating out to be positive and to allow us to have options. It's for
both on the go foods and restaurants. They are aiming to see more gluten
free options available; a wider range of reasonably priced, pre-packaged, food on
the go; gluten free options if you are on a journey (train / plane / ferry);
nutritious food available hospitals, nursing homes and schools; and more
options from Asian cuisines.
The face of the campaign
Cyril the coeliac duck!
I'm sure you must have seen him this campaign week? He is joined by his
friends Sophie and Sam, see them on the front of the leaflets here:
How can I help?
It's simple really. You
can order your campaign pack here.
They will send you leaflets to hand out, there are three types: gluten free for
public services, gluten free on the go and going gluten free. There are
also flags to put in your food to share on social media as well as cards to
give to restaurants for feedback on their gluten free foods. The campaign
is lasting all year so there's plenty of time to get involved. It's super
easy and even if you give out one leaflet, you'll be benefiting so many
people. Don't forget to share your campaign images using
#glutenfreevolution You can also watch and share their animated films so
people understand the gluten free diet here.
Coeliac UK have some amazing
aims for this campaign, and I really hope we can achieve this and improve
gluten free life for us all. So please try and support the campaign and
do every bit you can!
Thank you, for being here all
week and I hope you enjoyed Coeliac awareness week, don't forget to carry on
sharing your photos using #glutenfreevolution and I'll see you next Sunday at
9am, posts are returning back to normal!
