Gluten Free School Lunch Ideas!

7 Tips for Gluten Free Lunches

  1. Buy a fun lunch box for smaller kids
  2. Invest in sturdy, reusable containers for less waste
  3. Get a good thermos and lunch size cooler or cooler bag to keep things hot and cold
  4. Let kids help plan their own lunches to be sure they will enjoy what’s in it
  5. Substitute Sunbutter (from sunflower seeds) if your child is in a nut free classroom or Barney Butter(Almond Butter) if they can’t have peanuts for peanut butter. They taste just as good, but are allergy friendly.
  6. Remind small kids not to trade any food with friends and not to try anything from anyone else
  7. Pack a treat – Even if it’s bite sized or an encouraging note or stickers. It’s hard work being gluten free at school!
