Lunchbox Idea: Gluten Free

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Thankyou everybody for your support the last few day’s, I couldn’t believe was a hassle it was to change software over.  Thankfully we are up and running again.  Your emails and facebook messages were so lovely, thanks again 🙂

I really wanted to share this lunch box with you.  Thankyou to reader Gillian sending in a picture of your son’s lunchbox.  Gillian’s son is on a strict diet, he must avoid food colours, additives & preservatives to avoid ADHD. 

Lunchbox contents:

  • Old Time Bakery Gluten Free wraps (from Mrs Flannerys) filled with creamed cheese, sliced chicken, grated carrot, & sprouts.
  • ‘Stickies’ – beetroot, black olives, mushrooms, and cubed chicken.
  • Gluten Free pretzels.
  • Sliced apple

That’s a super healthy lunch box!! 

More Foods Gillian uses:

  • Kumut Bread which has very low-level gluten (costs $6ish per loaf) – I buy the bread from Mrs Flannereys.  Kumut is related to wheat but not an issue for him or me as we are both wheat intolerant.
  • A lot of the stuff I buy is Gluten Free, piklet mix, cake / muffin mix.
  • Bake alot using Rice flours and GF flour mixes.
