5 Quick and Easy Gluten Free Lunch Ideas For Kids

I can’t believe that it’s almost time to go back to school! That means it’s back to getting up early, homework, getting out of the house on time and packing lunches! I am a firm believer that food is brainpower!

I always want to make sure that besides a good breakfast, and that Pookah gets a great lunch to keep him going throughout the day. With school about to start back up, I’ve spent the last few weeks testing out gluten free lunch ideas on Pookah.

It was hard, but I think Pookah and I compromised to find 5 quick and easy gluten free lunch ideas for kids that are kid AND mom approved.
