There is a health fair called “A Healthy Sunshine Day for Special Children” being held on Saturday November 21st from 12pm to 6pm at the Sunshine Early Stimulation Centre, which is located in Perry Gap, Roebuck Street, St.Michael. This is being organised by a Lynora Hobbs who is a social work student at the University of West Indies.
The fair aims to give parents the tools needed to reduce the overall stressful impact that the introduction of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) can have on family in a fun and interactive environment. Parents can learn not only about the importance of healthy eating for their children but also about specialized diets such as the Gluten Free diet, that can be implemented to reduce symptoms of autism according to various studies
For further information contact Lynora at 622-2038.

If you want the best coffee in town alongside a slice of gluten free cake, you’ve found the right place. This is a beautiful coffee shop within the grounds of the George Washington House, The Garrison, St Michael. It is a perfect venue for breakfast or lunch. There is seating inside and outside and the decor is clean, fresh and the smells are just devine. The staff are warm and friendly too. The breakfast menu is very tempting and I’m still salivating over a recent frittata!
They also take bookings if there is a large group of you!
Please note, that payment is strictly by cash only.

Cost-U-Less is another large warehouse style supermarket as Price Smart, but there is no membership fee. Another nice bonus is that you can receive $5 dollar vouchers off your next shop when you spend a certain amount. It is based in Welches, St. Thomas which is a growing shopping area (and has a small fountain which delights me..!).
Personally, I love the range of vegetables here (they have jalapeno peppers and spring onions that I have not found elsewhere). The big packs of salad and spinach are great too. They have also started to stock a variety of gluten free products in their bakery section too, which I started to notice is growing. They have bread, wraps, cookies and cakes. Their large bags of pecan nuts are the cheapest in town (so far as I have noticed). Great for making pecan cookies! I found the warehouse stores great for buying large bags of nuts to make nut butter or flour with.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. It’s so nice to see a high level of customer service at a large store (which sadly can be lacking here).
Monday – Thursday 8:00 am – 9:00 pm
Friday – Saturday 8:00 am – 10:00 pm
Sunday 8:00 am – 6:00 pm

The Bliss Cafe is a family run cafe, located the Dover side of the St Lawrence Gap, near to the Time Out Hotel and Express-Rent-A-Car. They serve 7 different types of Gluten Free Waffles, 2 types of Gluten Free Toasties and 3 types of Gluten Free Salads. The fresh juices and the coffee are fantastic too!
It’s a wonderful friendly cafe with amazing food. The waffles, alone, are in a league of their own and it is the perfect place to have breakfast. The reviews on Trip Advisor are very good! Make this cafe part of your morning routine! You will not be disappointed!
