6 Easy and Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for Kids

“Gluten-free” is at the top of the food trend list. Parents are becoming more conscious of their children’s dietary sensitivities and allergies, which had previously gone undetected. There’s no evidence that a gluten-free meal plan is better than the healthful, balanced foods that all kids require unless your child has a special medical reason to avoid gluten. Before you begin preparing gluten-free meals, it is essential to know what gluten-free means!! (Growth and development of a child at one year)

WHAT GLUTEN-FREE MEANS?

If your child has celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity, they will need to maintain a gluten-free diet. Gluten is a protein present in wheat, barley, rye, and grain derivatives such as malt and brewer’s yeast. (Different types of Food allergies in kids)

A gluten-free diet eliminates any foods that contain these components. People who are sensitive to gluten may still consume a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, beans, lentils, and most dairy products. These ingredients are naturally gluten-free and safe to consume.

Gluten-free foods:

Here is a list of naturally gluten-free foods that are healthful and can be excellent alternatives for your kids :

  • Vegetables and fruits
  • Natural, unprocessed forms of beans, seeds, legumes, and nuts
  • Eggs
  • Meats, fish, and poultry that are lean and unprocessed
  • Low fat dairy products

A gluten-free diet can contain the following grains like Amaranth, buckwheat, corn, rice, millets, quinoa, sorghum, oats and flours like corn flour, chickpea flour, soy flour, almond meal/flour, coconut flour and tapioca flour.

These ingredients may be used to make gluten-free dishes for kids that are both nutritious and delightful.
