school gear and gluten free lunch ideas

18 Aug

school starts on monday. i can’t believe it, summer flew by. between running through the sprinkler, playing with friends and receiving his yellow belt, eli also practiced his reading. his favorite books to read are the elephant and piggie series by mo willems. there’s nothing better than listening to your child read a book and giggle uncontrollably, it’s priceless. i highly recommend “there is a bird on your head” and “i will surprise my friend”. we purchased a new lunch box this year because the one we had last year, although very cute, did not hold enough food. we chose the easy lunch box. so here hoping we have a great first grade year full of yummy lunches and no (minimal) eczema and no tummy troubles.

school lunch ideas:

1. sandwich on gluten free bread
2. muffin and potato salad (this may sound strange but it’s really yummy)
3. flat bread and hummus (eli’s favorite)
4. flautas
5. rice balls
6. apple sandwich (less messy with a bit of honey or raisins instead of jelly)
7. corn dog muffins (i’ve changed the recipe, will post someday)
8. fruit salsa with cinnamon chips
