Gluten Free Lunch Box Ideas

Gluten Free Lunch Box Ideas

Looking for nut free and gluten free lunch box ideas? Or just some new yummy and healthy lunch box snacks for your kids?

This school year I want to bake more homemade treats for my kids school lunches. How much easier that will be now I have a new oven!  

So I thought I would put together a list of gluten free lunch box recipes that real Mums use for their own kids school lunches.  These lunch box treats are what Aussie Mums, Lisa of Happy Tummies and Kylie of Kidgredients actually make for their own kids to eat for school.

Also these lunch box recipes are specifically suited for busy Mums raising kids with allergies.  All but one are gluten free and all are nut free.  To make things even easier they can be made ahead and then frozen.  

Thanks to Lisa, of the online grocery store Happy Tummies, who has plenty of experience with kids with tricky diet requirements and Kylie from Kidgredients, for sharing their favourite lunch box ideas.

The zucchini in these chocolate zucchini cupcakes makes them super moist and extra tasty.   To make them gluten free just substitute the wholemeal flour with an alternative.
