I'm looking to put together a list for Girl Scouts, soccer parents, etc of the absolute most mainstream gluten-free snacks that my kids can eat.  We are talking about the people that usually throw individual cheeze-it bags and capri-suns on the table for the kids.

 

Help me brainstorm!

* Individually wrapped string cheese

* Individually tubed yogurt (go-gurt and the like)

* Go-go Squeeze applesauce

* Fruit - apples, strawberries, grapes, etc (washed but not cut)

* Pirate's Booty

 

And, yes, I will keep back-up snacks in my purse in case I need to switch something out at the last minute...

Undiagnosed, but I'm positive that I'm the genetic link to celiac for my kids.  Gluten Free in solidarity of my girls!

Kid 1 (8 y/o girl) - DX celiac via blood in 9/2013 (age 7.5).  Negative biopsy in 10/2013.

Kid 2 (4 y/o boy) - DX as "latent celiac" via blood in 9/2013 (age 3.5).  Negative biopsy in 10/2013.  DX with gastritis.

Kid 3 (2 y/o girl) - DX celiac via blood in 8/2013 (age 1.5) and 9/2013.

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

Veggie straws, puffed goldfish (or whatever th are called), smartfood, Chex.

My sons scout troops always seems to buy one if those huge boxes of frito lay bags, so he can eat several if those. Not the healthiest option, by far, but easily accessible.

Be careful on the m&ms.  The regular and peanut ones are gluten-free, but the pretzel ones aren't (obviously) and I noticed that the candy corn ones aren't gluten-free either.  Might want to stick to the old fashioned brown and yellow bags.

 

Skittle and Starburst are also gluten-free.

There are plenty of kids allergic to nuts so perhaps keep that in mind when going to play dates!
