6. Stick to Fruit and Vegies
Fruits and veggies are always a safe choice for gluten free children. Make a fruit or veggie platter more appealing by creating a picture with the various fruits. Check online for some great platter pictures.
7. Gluten Free Birthday Cake
Your specialty cake mix may not be gluten free and that’s okay. However, to ensure that the gluten free children do not miss out on cake time, why not visit a bakery and pick up a couple of gluten free cupcakes for them to have during the cake eating. That way they don’t miss out on the best part (and let’s face it, a birthday isn’t a birthday without the cake!)
8.Lolly Bag Options
It’s a good idea to mix up the lolly bags to contain more than just sugary sweets. The good news is that plenty of the traditional lollies are actually gluten free! These include Fruit Tingles, Freddo Frogs, Allen’s Freckles and Wonka Redskins. Mix up the lolly bag to include a balloon, a popper, a blower and other non-food items.
Don’t be upset if your kids might be left out because of their special diet. It is an opportune time to empower your child to do what’s right for his health . Also, it is an opportune time to educate your friends on your child’s nutrition and probably you can persuade them to make that big change too. Who knows catering for a gluten free birthday party could be your next career. Consider yourself lucky!
