One of the top tips that registered dietitians will tell you is that getting kids involved in the meal prep process makes them far more likely to try new ingredients and enjoy their meals. The following recipes are super simple to prepare – kids will love lending you a hand in choosing ingredients and assembling these dishes. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack ideas that cater to the dietary needs of children with celiac disease, while also appealing to the entire family.

Here are five gluten-free spring and summer recipes for meals and snacks that kids will love:

1. Breakfast: Yogurt Parfait with Fresh Fruits and Granola:

Layer gluten-free granola, Greek yogurt (or dairy-free yogurt), and a variety of fresh seasonal fruits in a tall glass or bowl. This colorful and nutritious breakfast will keep your kids energized throughout the day.

2. Lunch: Gluten-Free Mini Pizzas:

Use gluten-free pizza crust or tortillas as a base. Let your kids top them with their favorite gluten-free pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings like sliced veggies, cooked chicken, or GF pepperoni. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

3. Dinner: Grilled Chicken Skewers with Pineapple and Vegetables:

 These colorful skewers are not only visually appealing but also delicious. Marinated grilled chicken, juicy pineapple chunks, and assorted vegetables make for a flavorful and healthy summer meal.

4. Snack: Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Glaze:

Caprese skewers are a simple and tasty appetizer or snack. Thread cherry tomatoes, mini mozzarella balls, and fresh basil leaves onto skewers. Drizzle with balsamic glaze for an extra burst of flavor.

5. Dessert: Frozen Banana Pops:

These frozen treats are a hit with kids. Insert popsicle sticks into peeled bananas, dip them in melted dark chocolate, and sprinkle with chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or sprinkles. Freeze until solid, and you have a delightful and healthy dessert option.

Remember to double-check the ingredient labels for any packaged items to ensure they are gluten-free and suitable for your child's dietary needs. Enjoy these gluten-free summer recipes with your kids!
