Coeliac Awareness week (16th-22nd May) is around the corner, so why not host a gluten-free dinner party for your friends?
The aim of the week, run by Coeliac UK, is to raise more awarness of coeliac disease - and make gluten-free living easier.
During the week, Coeliac UK are hoping people will sign up to take the Gluten-free Challenge.
Kate Newman, PR Consultant at Coeliac UK explains more:
"What we are hoping is that the nation will do something gluten-free during the week to help raise awareness of the condition and also experience what it is like for the 1 in 100 people in the UK who have coeliac disease and living on a strict gluten-free diet day in day out."
"We would love people to go gluten-free for the whole week – doing all their cooking, shopping (checking the packets for every ingredient) and eating (at home, at work and out in restaurants) entirely gluten-free so they get the whole picture. However, by doing just one thing such as going out to a restaurant and asking what is on offer that is gluten-free, or doing a gluten-free cake stall or asking a local café or canteen to put on a gluten-free dish during awareness week will all be helping to raise awareness!"

As part of my uni project, I went to investigate how you can host the perfect gluten free dinner party, by speaking to people in Bournemouth.
