Packing Lunch for Your Gluten-Free Child

Ah Back to School, a time of the year that has many parents rejoicing! Keeping kids occupied throughout the summer months can be a tough job! But with Back to School comes the added task of packing nutritious school lunches. This task can be made that much more challenging for those with a child suffering from Celiac Disease. 

Here at Grimm’s we do our best to provide our customers with options that are safe for those with food allergies and dietary restrictions. All of our meat products are gluten, lactose and soy free with no MSG added and we are proud to offer a selection of gluten rice free tortillas and Naturally Fermented Foods. 

We are lucky to be part of a large community that includes the Canadian Celiac Association and helpful online guides such as The Celiac Scene™. We wanted to put together a few ideas to make packing celiac friendly lunches a breeze and ask you to weigh in on your favourite gluten friendly products.

With the help of Ellen Bayens, Founder and President of The Celiac Scene™ we put together the following pairings that we hope will help make the job easier.
