When you are a gluten free family you have to do more work to find food that tastes good and won’t make you sick. Thankfully the market is drastically changing! Gluten free options are available almost everywhere now, including Walmart. This makes life for those with a gluten intolerance or Celiac’s disease much easier!
Little Divine likes breakfast kid style usually so we shop for GF cereals and oatmeal. That way she still gets to feel like she’s getting fun breakfast and not missing out too much. Cereal is an alright choice, but not super filling in my opinion. Oatmeal has been a staple breakfast food in American households for many generations, and I think a lot of that has to do with how filling it is. You want something that will stick to the ribs to keep people full until lunch. Children especially need something filling as they are constantly growing.
Most oats are not certified gluten free, which means it’s a risk to eat them. I shopped around and one brand I found that we LOVE is by Love Grown Foods! Their Super Oats Chia & Quinoa oatmeal is a hit in my house! On top of that, they sell a variety pack with similar flavors you find in regular kids oatmeal. So Little Divine gets the feel of the kids oatmeal packs in flavors while I get to feed her a healthy meal full of healthy grains. Win win! (^.^)
Their oats are also GMO free, another plus! You get fiber, protein, and tastiness all in one place. Little Divine loves how these taste and has not once complained about them. It’s important to note that because she doesn’t always like healthy grains on their own. Love Grown found a way to make them delicious for kids and adults!
Super Oats come in several different kinds and you can buy them plain in a larger amount. We just get the Variety Pack box for Little Divine. I alternate cereal and oatmeal with GF French toast made on the weekends. It’s enough variety that it keeps Little Divine from getting tired of eating something but not too many choices to make things complicated.
I do wish they sold a pack with more than 6 in it. We use it so much that a 12 or 24 pack would be super handy for our family! That would be the only small issue I have. Definitely give it a try and let me know what you think!
