Gluten-Free Lunchbox Roundup: 40 Kid-Friendly & Allergy-Friendly Lunch Recipes

It’s that time of year again! The kids are headed back to school, and for many parents with gluten & allergy free children, this means packing a safe and healthy lunch for their kiddos. With the help of some of your favorite bloggers, I’ve compiled this roundup of 40 gluten-free, kid-friendly and allergy-friendly lunch recipes. From grain free, to vegan, to gluten free grains, I think you’ll find there’s a little of something for everyone. A big thank you to all of the bloggers who gave me permission to share their photos and recipes with you!

      Thanks, Laura! Our school district started public school last week, but I think the girls and I are going to start our homeschool routine this week. I just got Abbi’s books today, so she’s excited to start! Thanks again for agreeing to be a part of this!

    Nice group of recipes, thanks! A quick request:

    Kindly correct the spelling of “COCK” Pot Bison Stew from Eat, Recycle, Repeat to “CROCK” Pot Bison Stew, as the current spelling is missing the all important letter “R”.

    Thank you for all of the great ideas! I needed more ideas for my family that encompasses our new diet, and I feel ready! Any changes we need to make to accommodate will be easy enough to remedy.

    Just found out that my daughter is allergic to wheat and school starts next month. So happy about this post, especially since I’m a new subscriber. Just really happy to be a new follower of yours and this post came just in time. Thanks!

      Hi Pamela,
      Welcome to Allergy Free Alaska! I’m very sorry to hear your daughter was diagnosed with a wheat allergy. :( Making dietary changes can be overwhelming at first, but it does get easier. The recipes shared in this post come from several wonderful websites, each one full of their very own gluten free and allergy friendly recipes. I encourage you to check them all out when you are able to! Good luck! :)
