Back to School: Top 10 Gluten, Dairy, and Corn Free Breakfast Foods and Snacks

20120807-123302.jpgTo celebrate our five years of feeding our boys gluten-, dairy-, and corn-free, and to mourn the imminent end of summer, here is a top 10 list of our favorite, go-to processed foods for the kids, foods that make for great breakfasts, lunches, and field trip pick-me-ups. (Local, fresh, and organic, of course, are always best — huge thanks to New Hampshire’s Meadow’s Mirth, Stout Oak, and New Roots farms for all their help there!)

1) Larabars (cashew cookie and peanut butter)

2) Udi’s gluten-free granola and bagels

3) So Delicious plain yogurt and coconut milk ice cream

4) EdenBlend rice & soy beverage (we really like Eden’s whole line of products, most of which work for us)

5) Hampton Farms peanuts (in the shell)

6) Mother’s plain rice cakes

7) Polar and La Croix (and store brand) seltzers

8) Knudsen orange and grape spritzers (a treat–a little pricey!)

9) Boar’s Head low sodium deli turkey (at the deli counter)

10) Food For Life brown rice loaf

We hope this helps the people out there with these allergies and sensitivities. Tell us your favorites!

    Nice list. I wish I would’ve come across a list like this when I was newly gluten-free. My son recently went lactose free and I must say that the SO Delicious stuff is better than the real deal. 🙂

      Thanks so much! That’s our hope — that people struggling toward health and healing will find some of this useful. And, of course, I’m looking forward to seeing more of your posts on these issues…all the best!
