A 13-year-old female has been diagnosed with celiac disease. Which of the following dinner trays would be acceptable?

  • baked chicken breast, carrots, baked potato with cheese
  • turkey and cheese sandwich on wheat bread, cabbage slaw, apple slices
  • spaghetti with meatballs, Caesar salad, banana
  • pulled pork on flour tortillas, wild rice, black beans
Number 1 is correct.
Clients with celiac disease must follow a strict gluten-free diet. Chicken, carrots, potatoes, and cheese are gluten free and acceptable food choices for this client. Wheat bread, regular spaghetti, and flour tortillas all contain gluten. Any croutons in the Caesar salad would have gluten, too, if they are made from regular bread.
