Can anyone recommend an RD who is both vegan friendly and experienced with celiac disease? Bonus points if they have pediatric nutrition specialties.

Our baby will be starting solids soon and I have quite a few celiacs in my family, so I'd like to talk with someone about if, when, and how to introduce gluten. I'd prefer an RD but will consider nutritionists.

Any personal advice or experience with this issue is welcome as well!

Mandycoot, if you can't get a more specific recommendation from someone, I do have a nutrition practice that I like a lot. I don't know about their experience with celiac disease though.

You could try seeking out Dina Aronson (MS, RD) on the web and ask her if she knows of anyone nearby. Or you can get her advice directly, if you don't mind the fact that she's in New Jersey. She's at vegfamily.com, she's authored papers at veganhealth.org, she's authored some vegan nutrition books, and she has her own business as a meal planning consultant and nutritionist. I know her from a vegan mailing list I used to be on where she used to talk about vegan nutrition. Very nice person and knows her stuff.
