Coming up with appealing gluten-free snacks for children with psoriasis who also have a gluten allergy or celiac disease can be a challenge. But for tots with doctor's orders to avoid gluten products, it's essential for their good health.
Some products, like regular bread and other wheat items, are clear sources of gluten. But gluten can lurk in less obvious places like processed foods, so be sure to read labels carefully.
Here are 10 kid-friendly gluten-free snacks to try(Bonus: Unlike special, gluten-free products, these foods aren't difficult to find and won't break the bank.)
These are just a small sample of gluten-free snacking options. In general, let your child's particular tastes guide you. Some kids like to eat the same snacks again and again. For others, variety is the spice of life. Some tots favor sweet treats, while others go for savory foods. Some like a little bit of both. In short, by focusing on the possibilities instead of the limitations, gluten-free snacking doesn't have to be dull, boring or bland.
