    10 Gluten & Dairy Free Recipes That Are Actually YUMMY!

    Yummy Snacks for Kids

    My daughter is currently trialling a Gluten & Dairy free diet in the hope that it will help with her Dermatitis.  We have already seen a difference in her skin after only a couple of weeks so we are eager to push on with it.

    The hardest part I find with this sort of elimination diet is finding SNACKS that Oaks will give the tick of approval to.  Meal times aren’t so hard, but finding substitutes for the muesli bars, doughnuts, toasted sandwiches & cereals that she likes to snack on, particularly after school is a full time job!

    I thought I might like to share with you the Gluten & Dairy free snack recipes that we’ve tried & tested & given the big thumbs up to!  I’ve found that if I don’t look so much for “snacks” rather than just good old food it makes it easier to provide the sustenance & yumminess that she’s craving away from meal times.

    Sometimes a recipe can be adjusted just a little to make it fit your brief as well, like the Tortilla Soup I’ve listed here – it’s easy to eliminate the sour cream or cheese in a recipe like this without affecting the taste!

    So here goes – our (current) Top 10 Gluten & Dairy Free Recipes for Kids that are actually yummy!
