Gluten Free Cereal

Recommended Posts

We have tried our 4 year old daughter on several gluten-free cereal. She really does not enjoy any of them. Is there a cereal out there, that has been tried and tested, in which our wee girl will like ? Have heard somewhere about Dora cereal, we have no idea. Any help on this matter is great. Thanks !

Newer Trix cereal is also gluten free. Just make sure that you read the label. My son likes Trix more than fruity pebbles. Other than that, I think the pebbles cereal is the best. My son doesn't really like the speciality gluten-free cereals either.

I believe Trix just changed their formula and now use corn flour instead of wheat flour, but I would call them first to verify.

About the only use I've found for the gluten free cereals are to use the Enjoy Life Cranapple Crunch to mix in with my yogurt

The new new Berry flavored Peebles are gluten free as well. I also use cocoa peebles as a substitute to make rice krispie treats, they're pretty good

We use Trix, Cocoa Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles, Dora cinnamon stars & Little Einstein fruity stars all without any problems.:) The only specialty gluten-free cereals we like are Panda Puffs (Peanut Butter) & Honey Rice Puffins. Buckwheat flakes taste great (maple taste) but are very hard.

Good Luck,

Trix is gluten-free again? Talk about a company that can not make up their mind. It was not gluten-free for a while,then it was, then they added wheat starch back in (one of the last ingredients on the list),and now your saying its gluten-free again? What about its burnt cousin, cocoa puffs?

As for the orginal questions... Cocoa Pebbles and Panda Puffs are my son's favorites.

Daniel and I haven't tried them yet, but I've heard mention of Envirokids cereal. There's a health/supplement store about 2 minutes (walking) from my work, and I stopped in there today to find out if they have any gluten-free vitamins I could get for Daniel (the girl working there was VERY unhelpful...I don't think she knows what gluten is, she seemed somewhat confused) and on my way out, I saw the Envirokids cereal!! I'm so excited to try it! Does anyone know, are all flavors of that brand gluten-free? And, are there any you wouldn't recommend?

This is an excellent thread!!

The Gluten-Free Envirokids cereals are clearly labelled on the front. I believe that not all are. I like the Cocoa crisp flavor best, but I'm 31.

Teh Gorilla crunch is OK.

Funny story, I bought a box to leave at my In-Laws. When I went back there this weekend, it was gone. Apparently my 82 y.o. Chinese Grandma in Law loves envirokids now.

Can anyone give me a list of mainstream gluten free cereal? I know about all the specalty cereals, but I heard that coco pebbles was not gluten free. Can someone help?

Thank you! ;)

ALWAYS CHECK INGREDIENTS AS COMPANIES CHANGE RECIPES WITH OUT NOTICE

POST Cocoa Pebbles

POST Frutiy Pebbles

GM Dora the Explorer

Disney Little Einsteins

Disney Mickey Mouse Club (I think thats the name of it...)

NEW boxes of Trix are gluten free, again. just a few months ago this was not true, so probably plenty of old stock out there

Kroger Brand Fruity Pebbles

Those are the ones I know of as of the last time I was in the grocery store reading boxes. ALL have a chance of CC, so eat at your own risk. :)
