gluten free Rice Krispies cereal with my daughter. To help gluten free families like mine, Rice Krispies has teamed up with “The Gluten-Free Dietitian” Tricia Thompson, MS, RD to to "de-bunk" the following gluten myths:
Myth One: You always have to pay more for gluten-free products.
"Gluten-free doesn’t have to mean more expensive or a trip to a specialty store. For example, a box of Kellogg's Rice Krispies Gluten Free cereal costs the same amount as Kellogg's Rice Krispies and is sold alongside the original blue box."
Myth Two: All gluten-free snacks for kids require extra attention from mom and dad.
"Not all snacks require a lot of time and preparation. With many favorite products now available in gluten-free varieties, it’s easy to whip up a quick gluten-free snack that the whole family will love, like Rice Krispies Gluten-Free Treats™."
Myth Three: Food that’s labeled “gluten-free” is healthy.
"Not all gluten-free products qualify as healthy. When grocery shopping, look for gluten-free cereals, breads, and pastas that are made with gluten-free whole grains or have been fortified or enriched as they are good sources of iron and B vitamins, which may be lacking in gluten-free diets."
You can find fun gluten free recipes using Rice Krispies cereal on their website, Facebook and Pinterest pages.
