Kids love snacks! We know keeping your kids gluten-free, can be challenging, especially when it comes to snacks. Choosing healthy snacks to munch on throughout the day can boost their energy and nutritional intake.
But let’s first talk about what Gluten is. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and triticale that could cause serious side effects if you have an intolerance. However, a big misconception about eating gluten-free is that it’s automatically healthy. But just like as many prepackaged foods, prepackaged gluten-free products can be high in calories, fat, sodium, and added sugars.
We put a list of easy gluten-free snacks from our favorite bloggers that both you and the kids can enjoy making (and eating) together!
