I remember seeing somewhere that schools could buy ready made frozen gluten free lunches. One box had 5 different lunches, a weeks worth for one child. Does anyone know what company makes these?

I've never seen them for schools (or been offerred them . . .) but maybe they are GoPicnic lunches? We buy those for airplane travel . . .

We can't bring them to school because the school is nut-free.

That is an awesome program for northern California. I wish Illinois offered something similar.

Those look good, like lunchables. Something the child could bring himself for lunch (if allowed at his school). Thanks for the info.

They must have gone under with the economy. I was hoping they had merged into another company?

if I get a chance I'll keep looking for other options.

ian's all natural allergen free foods used to have meals, now they just do mostly entrees. Go to the allergen specifications page and it will match the products you can have. There is a chicken nugget meal.

Some of the "gluten free" stuff in the GoPicnic lunches are gluten free, but processed in a facility that processes wheat. My son can't eat those items. I found some of the items sold separately (like the hummus) and other stuff (jiff single serve peanut butter, individual cups of tuna salad, etc.) All shelf stable. I put together my own "lunchables" for my son. He keeps one at school for emergencies (like when he left his lunchbox on the bus) and they are great for grabbing when we are going out for the day. I also keep one in the car just in case.

Schar table crackers come in individual packages inside the box so they are very handy.

Also, I got some great "take out" containers from the grocery store (sectioned with lids) that work perfectly.

These look good, pretty kid friendly. Thanks.

I think I found what I have been looking for. It's just five entrees and 5 cookies, so not complete lunches. Here's the address for anyone else interested. http://www.mrsips.com/
