Vitamins:

Celiacs lack B and zinc, should take 2 times a day not to flush out of system...
Kirkmans vitamins are a good supplement...
For leg cramps you need potassium, calcium and B vitamins. 
Massages and soaks in Epsom salts also help leg cramps.

Due to popular demand we hope to schedule more workshops like this next year. It was enjoyable to be able to converse and learn from each other with only the parents present.
