Gluten-Free Shopping for Kids

A group of moms, who also happen to be Whole Foods Market Northern California team members, got together and created a "NorCal Moms" Facebook page as a place to offer fellow moms useful information on all aspects of mothering — from choosing healthy foods and products for babies and kids to cool community events. While a lot of their information is specific to our Northern California stores, we thought this video they put together about shopping for gluten-free products for your kids had universal appeal. Remember: our product mix varies from store to store so the exact items in the video may not be available in your local store. Also, shelf signs and printed shopping lists vary. Check with your store's customer service team members and they'll be able to help you.

I am going gluten free with my entire family and really don't know where to start. I picked up a few things just to get us started this week but not having much luck. The bread for instance crumbled in my hands, can anyone recommend a good bread to make sandwiches with so I can send my kids to school with a sandwich that won't break up in their hands? Cookies, are there any that are better than the other? I don't want this to be too much of a shock to my kids. I cook them gourmet meals every night just so that they don't grow up on mac and cheese and chicken nuggets and I'm hoping to keep that going. I pulled off a few recipes from the Whole Foods website that I will begin making tonight, it sure looks good. Any help or suggestions would be great apppreciated!! THANKS!

Anne- you may not get this since it has been a while since you posted- but the best gf bread I have found is Udi's. http://www.udisglutenfree.com/stores It's very expensive to order online- but if you can find a store near you it is about $5 a loaf. -jen

I'm glad I went to this website first. The video was very helpful. My daughter needs to go gluten free for 2 weeks to see if she has a gluten allergy or some other kind of allergy. There were some items in the video that she likes so she will be happy to know that she still can have those things. Thanks for the tips and info. I can't wait to take her to your store and let her help with the shopping.
