Ten Tips on How to Keep Kids Gluten Free at School this year

Keeping with our back to school theme this week. I’m answering a question any parent with a school-age child is asking this month; “How the heck am I going to make sure my kids don’t get “glutened” at school? I’ve spent the last couple of weeks pondering that question and I think I’m ready to lay down my strategy for this year!

Some people may just say “My plan is to pack their lunches and snacks. Duh.” and while this will of course be on my list of ways to keep them safe there’s some things you may not have considered yet. I can’t count the times since going gluten free that I didn’t have the forethought to prepare for a situation where my gluten and corn allergies might have presented a problem.

I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 things we can do to keep our kids gluten free at school this year!

The best way to avoid all of this is to cook at home from scratch. You'll also not miss the over inflated prices of 90% of the packaged gluten free items out there shortly after going this route. You would be shocked just how many foods are naturally gluten free, and just how many things you can do with those foods. Nearly every recipes we make on this site will be with these basic staple foods. Done about a million different ways!

Today I'll share what a basic shopping list looks like for me. Now, obviously we have a few packaged gluten and corn free foods we like to pick up for additional snacking. I'm not including those. I'm showing you my basics I buy for a family for four for 1 week.
