Gluten-Free, Kid-Approved Lunchtime Recipes

Give your kids taste and nutrition with this brown-bag-ready lunch menu.

Some say summer ends with the first chilly wind, but for many of us, the season of beach trips and sunscreen comes to a close when the first school bell rings. Whether it’s questionable school lunch fare, class cupcakes from another mom, or lunchtime chip trades, making sure your little vegan gets his or her proper nutrition while staying meat- and dairy-free takes a bit more time and energy—especially if your child suffers from allergies. Never fear—this easy-to-make, gluten-free menu is brown-bag friendly, full of the nutrients your kid needs to stay healthy, and most importantly, delicious. Just try not to steal a few bites for yourself!

Forget the PB&J: Pack this brown bag lunch for your little scholars!
