Look around on this website as we have had lots of posts about this. You can try putting snacks and lunch in the search box. There are a lot of candy & you can find a list - M&Ms, Dove chocolate are 2,

If she has a lot of trouble, it's best to stick to unprocessed, naturally gluten-free foods. Fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, dried fruits, plain nuts and seeds, and cheese are all naturally gluten-free, healthy snack foods. I love apples and peanut butter. :) For sweets, most good chocolate is naturally gluten-free, or get an ice cream without a lot of ingredients like Breyer's.

The more processing, the more risk of gluten cross-contamination. Larabars, Kind bars, Lay's Stax, and the Nature Valley nut crunch bars (the box is marked gluten-free now) are some processed foods I can tolerate well. Lundburg rice cakes are pretty good and gluten-free, and the Whole Foods brand rice crackers are affordable and haven't give me any problems.

Hi Hollie

A few months after I was diagnosed I discovered these grocery shopping guides. Made my life much easier when shopping.

Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping Guides. Aside from these, our local GIG Celiac Div. has a smaller gluten-free groc. guide that includes a lot of local items, so you may look for a local Celiac Chapter in your area.

There another out that can also be downloaded to your PDA device, etc., by Clan Thompson.

I bought the Cecilas guide, it was about $25 and worth every dollar. Put an end to standing in the aisle and reading packages!

Many grocery stores and food manufacturers (Kraft, Hormel etc) now have their own gluten free product lists as well, some online and some will mail you list.

Here is a link to Gluten Intolerance Group NA's page where you can search for certified gluten free items:
