David Treissa, 6, watches as his mother Jenette, left, sets the table for dinner at their home in Naples on May 13, 2009. David has Celiac disease, a digestive disorder that damages the small intestine and interferes with the absorption of nutrients from food. Because of that, David, who is underweight for his age, cannot have any food with gluten, oats, barley rye and wheat. Because his diet doesn't have many calories, Treissa puts a lot of fat in his food. 'He's on a high fat diet,' Treissa said. Greg Kahn/Staff
