The last days of summer are here... instead of mourning them my family chooses to celebrate them with nostalgic gluten free S'mores around our backyard fire pit. We use Kinnikinnick's tasty gluten free Graham Style Crackers as the perfect delivery system for ooey-gooey toasted marshmallows and melty chocolate bars. Our goal is to have as many S'more sessions as possible before Autumn arrives!
Speaking of Autumn... it is hard to believe it is almost time to start packing school lunches again, isn't it? The challenge in my house is providing a variation of gluten free snacks that are both healthy and appealing to my kids. I hit the "snack jackpot" with gluten free Beanfields Chips! Made from beans instead of corn Beanfields tasty chips come in four flavors and pack a high-fiber, GMO-free punch! Our favorite flavor is Pico De Gallo... YUM
Pretzels used to be a favorite lunchbox snack prior to my household going gluten free, but we choose not to purchase the astronomically high priced gluten free pretzels available in the specialty stores. When Snyder's of Hanover came out with affordable and delicious gluten free pretzel sticks we were thrilled; pretzels were back in my family's lunch box! Snyder's of Hanover's offers pretzel sticks that are certified gluten free and taste exactly like "regular" pretzels! Look for Snyder's of Hanover gluten free pretzel sticks in family sized bags and handy 100 calorie snack size packages.
What are your favorite end of summer and back to school snacks? Leave a comment and let me know!
