5 snacks for a scrummy gluten free school lunch

The school year is now back in full-force! Playgrounds are alive with the sound of excitement, classrooms are bustling with studious children and the canteen bell is calling.

It can be a difficult enough task to entice your child to eat the contents of their lunch box, and the challenge is even more daunting for those who are parents of children diagnosed with coeliac disease. But don’t fear, lunch times don’t have to be a battle anymore! Here’s a selection of 5 snacks for a scrummy gluten free school lunch this September.

1. Gluten free savoury wraps

Why not mix things up a little with a savoury wrap? This simple recipe using our Glutafin Gluten Free Select Multipurpose White Mix takes just 20 minutes prep and makes 6 individual wraps.

Fill them with your favourite cold ingredients such as chicken, ham, cheese and salad.

2. Gluten free Scotch egg

This simple snack has been a lunch time favourite for generations. Legend has it that the humble scotch egg can be traced back to nearly 300 years ago!

A traditional Scotch egg consists of a hard-boiled egg, wrapped in sausage meat and coated in bread crumbs. Our Scotch egg recipe uses Glutafin Gluten Free Select Multipurpose White Mix and takes less than 30 minutes to make, including preparation.

3. Classic gluten free sandwiches

Surely one of the most versatile weapons in your butty box, you just can’t beat a classic sandiwch. Whether it’s a simple sarnie or a super Scooby snack, get creative with our Fresh or Long Life breads for a quick lunch time winner!

Our fans are always sharing their creations on Facebook, so like us here for more inspiration.

4. Gluten free Toblerone Cookies

Give the kids a treat in their lunch box, these cookies will always impress! Our Toblerone cookie recipe uses Glutafin gluten free select multipurpose white mix, and is quick and easy!

5. Gluten free pasty

A national treasure so close to many people’s hearts, the pasty is one of our country’s most celebrated snacks. This hearty pastry is great centrepiece to any lunch box and will keep your child well-fuelled for the rest of the school day.

We have a range of pasty recipes available on our website, from Cheese & Potato to a classic Cornish.
