Gluten-Free Kid Faves
Barbecue Chicken Pizza
Prebaking the pizza crust helps this pizza not become soggy. You can either make a homemade Best Pizza Crust (see Chapter 2 in 201 Gluten-Free Recipes for Kids) or buy a gluten-free crust at the store. Either way, bake it before adding toppings.
Vanilla Cake or Cupcakes
These gluten-free, egg-free cupcakes have a light, fluffy texture and pair well with either chocolate or vanilla frosting.
Food Allergies: Helping Your Child Cope
Sunday Morning Pancakes
Pancakes are a weekend tradition in many families, and just because you're gluten-free doesn't mean you can't enjoy them too. These easy pancakes will be a favorite addition to your breakfast routine and can even be used as a gluten-free wrap for sandwiches in a pinch.
Macaroni and Cheese
Surprisingly, giving up gluten does not have to mean giving up creamy macaroni and cheese.
Turkey Avocado Roll-Up
Pack these in a lunchbox. Many children love to pull apart wraps and sandwiches and eat all the components separately. Playing with food is a great way for children to explore and accept new tastes and textures!
