Gluten Free Snack Ideas

Our daughter has some strange reactions when she eats gluten. It's not a full blown allergy, but it's definitely an intolerance. We know we all feel better when we do our best to stay away from it, so I put together this list of safe snacks.

Kids always want to be munching on something and the typical goldfish, crackers, granola bar type things just don't work around here, so hopefully this list will help you too! I am always looking for (easy and mostly healthy!) gluten-free snacks and I hope this list gives you new ideas! These suggestions don’t have to break the bank either!! Of course, organic is great, but eating traditional fruits and vegetables is better than not eating them simply because they aren’t organic.

Easy/No Mess/On the Go

apple slices
banana chips
apple chips
frozen corn
frozen peas
dried peas {just peas snack}
