We've been eating gluten-free for years now so we're used to revamping old standby meals to fit the bill but were desperately in need of some fresh, yummy gluten-free school lunch ideas. So we didn't waste any time in asking for a little help from our friends, and voilà — all kinds of kid-friendly recipes for the new school year!
Gluten-free School Lunch Ideas
I remember when we first had to remove gluten from our son's diet so many years ago. It honestly felt like somebody dropped me off in a new country without a map…
It was one thing to change the meals we made at home but another thing entirely when we could no longer use bread to make quick lunches! The market has come a long way since then, offering many more gluten-free bread options, but sandwiches can get so tiring.
Your kiddos are going to enjoy these uniquely tasty lunches for their back-to-school menu!
P.S. Be sure to check out our Safe School Lunch Gear Guide for non-toxic lunchboxes, bags and sandwich containers galore. Now you can pack a safe school lunch without worrying that you’re sending along a chemical soup!
