What To Feed A gluten-free Toddler?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My 17month old is gluten free. Up until now chex cereal and homemade "graham" crackers have been snacks. But she is starting to not want those anymore. What can I feed her as snacks? She just now has 2 molars coming in, so I have to be able to cut things up for her. We also have a business and her afternoon snack is often "on the run." Thanks for any thoughts.

My daughter's favorite food at that age was canned green beans.

There are gluten-free style cheerios, and Kix cereals are safe. There is a gluten-free graham craker called Smoreables maybe those will work.

What about dehydrated fruit chips . There are some that are soft and crisp but not sharp or brittle, I can't remember the brand but they have Disney characters on them.

Pirates booty has different things, crunchy cheese stix, potato flyers etc..

Frozen gogurts.

You can make your own Larabars with dates and whatever else you like ie grated carrots, pineapple etc... then roll into shape that's manageable for your toddler.

My daughter is only 10months, but she gets mostly the same stuff we do. (We don't cut everything into small pieces though, just some things.) Lots of fruit are fine (ripe pear and banana don't need to be cut up, if you're comfortable with it, but I do cut up even ripe mango) and veggies roasted are great. While we tend to eat at home, I plan on doing the same thing for her that I do for myself - pack a cooler bag if we go out, so she can still have lentil soup and hummus and chicken and all the rest of the stuff we usually have. (Lunch tends to be leftovers. ;) )

I can't remember what age we started giving these to my son but this is what comes to my mind - small bits of watermelon, tangerine slices, squished blueberries, broken up waffle, rice cakes, envirokids cereals, and muffins that I doctored up the mix.

My 19 month old enjoys lots of fruits, applesauce (even good with pb in it if she's ok with nuts); snyder's gluten free pretzels are great and can be dipped in hummus, pb, cream chease; raisins, prunes. I'm still trying to vary our snack choices, snacks are so much harder to me than meals.
