The Magical Cookie  is a children’s story about a young girl who has celiac disease and feels excluded at school birthday celebrations. She cannot eat the same treats as her friends and feels left out of the celebration. With her father’s support, Claire finds inner strength, empowerment, and a solution to when her friends are having birthday celebrations, or other celebrations that are not gluten free.


It is a sweet story about inner strength, empowerment, and a parent’s love. The illustrations are expressive, colorful and exemplify the storyline. You feel supportive of Claire beside her on her gluten free journey with birthday celebrations.




Mrs. Ritter’s three own daughters suffer from severe allergies, Hashimoto’s disease, and celiac disease. Mrs. Ritter, herself, is gluten intolerant. As an adult, she has felt excluded due to her gluten-free dietary needs and can relate to Jacq. As a teacher, Mrs. Ritter wants to help children feel empowered to stand up for themselves and instill change when they feel excluded. After all, everyone’s the same, just in different ways.
