IS IT COSTING YOU TOO MUCH TO FEED YOUR COELIAC FAMILY?
Staying healthy should be easier for Coeliacs these days.
There is a growing range of healthy gluten-food alternatives in New Zealand including bread, pasta and wraps like Gerry’s Wraps’ range.
We are learning that some Coeliacs on limited budgets are not getting a disability allowance that they may be entitled to and and are going hungry. Some Coeliacs don’t realise what they are entitled to, while others have been advised that they do not qualify for it.
One Nelson-based customer says she is steadily losing weight and has bad skin as she cannot afford to eat well.

We want to hear from Kiwis who are Coeliac and/or gluten intolerant on a low income and find out:
- how you make ends meet if you are on a limited budget
- if you and/or your Coeliac child gets a disability allowance from the Government already
- if you and/or your Coeliac child have not been able to get an allowance, and why
- if you think getting an allowance would help your family to eat more healthily
Coeliac NZ, of which Gerry’s Wraps is a certified gluten-free member, is endorsing this project and has kindly agreed to share this project on its networks to get the word out.
