I have had plenty of experience packing gluten-free lunches for my kids and for myself.

As anyone who is suffering from Celiac disease or had gluten allergy or sensitivity, you know just how important it is to ensure that the lunch is truly 100% free from gluten.
When my son had an allergy to wheat (which he outgrew after several years), I kept my entire house gluten-free. It gave me peace of mind to know that there was no risk of cross-contamination for him.
But that also meant I had to make gluten-free meals and gluten-free lunches that my picky husband and my picky daughter would actually enjoy as well. Which could prove to be tricky.
I have found several Gluten-Free Lunch Ideas that pleased EVERYONE in my house. And made my wheat-free little guy especially happy.
Gluten-Free Lunch Ideas
Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups
- Gluten-Free Ham Slices rolled up with slices of Colby Cheese
- Gluten-Free Pretzels

Be sure your lunch meat is completely gluten-free. I purchase certified gluten-free meat that is pre-packaged, so I do not worry about cross-contamination from the deli slicer that may have sliced meat or cheese that contains gluten.
Italian Sausage Skewers
- Gluten-Free Italian Sausage, sliced and skewered through tooth-picks
- Marinara Sauce for dipping
- Yogurt with diced strawberries
- Snap Pea Crisps
* My favorite gluten-free Sausage is al fresco, but you can find gluten-free sausage at most any grocery store.
DIY Nacho Lunchable
- Black beans

*Be sure that you select unflavored tortilla chips, or double-check they are gluten-free before purchasing.
