In brief: Maybe 1% (1 in 100)

Celiac disease affects about 1 in 100 people, to about 1 in 150 people.
The exact numbers are not certain, but it affects a little less than 1% of the population.

In brief: Less Common

Less common than in adults but it is still a possibility.
If your child has the symptoms, then getting evaluated is never a bad idea. You can also just start by removing gluten from the diet and seeing if there is an improvement.
