Date: Tuesday 23rd September 2014

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

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 arsenal, 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!
