When your children have gluten allergies, no longer is a sandwich a staple for lunch. Parents looking for simple, straightforward, and healthy Gluten Free Lunch ideas can try these 6 fun favorites.
Salad - Healthy, crunchy, and extremely versatile, salad makes a good go-to lunch for children. Incorporate shredded meat, cheese or tofu for protein. Cut vegetables in fun shapes using stainless steel cutters or add kid-friendly fruits like grapes or strawberries to make this one fun for kids of all ages.
Veggie sushi - Kids enjoy fun finger food for lunch, and veggie sushi can be the perfect healthy lunch item for adventurous eaters. You can either make the sushi yourself using vegetables, sheets of nori, and sushi rice, or pick up prepared sushi from a local sushi restaurant or grocery store.
Brown rice pasta and meatballs - Pasta and meatballs is a fun food kids love to eat. Brown rice pasta is healthy and gluten free, while beef or turkey meatballs add a dose of protein to this lunchtime staple.
Gluten-Free Sandwich - Sometimes, a sandwich is the perfect lunch idea because it's so portable. Gluten-free bread or brown rice tortillas can be filled with nut butter and jelly or bananas, cheese and meat, or hummus and avocado to make a tasty and healthy portable lunch idea.
Turkey and cheese roll-ups - Have all of the health of a turkey and cheese sandwich without the gluten. Slice cheese in sticks, or use string cheese. Wrap a slice of turkey around the cheese for a healthy lunch meal.
Gluten-Free Pizza - If your child is left out on Pizza Fridays, a gluten-free pizza can be the perfect alternative. Purchase gluten-free bread or a gluten-free pizza crust, then add cheese and your child's favorite topping. Pre-bake the pizza, and then pack it for lunch.
