If you or family members are on a gluten free diet, you’re probably looking for easy gluten free lunch box ideas. Kids can be picky eaters, and putting together delicious and nutritious lunches isn’t always easy. 

These gluten free bento box lunch ideas will bring your next lunch to life. Avoiding gluten doesn’t have to be bland, boring or difficult. With Milton’s gluten free ideas for lunch boxes, you can come home to happy, satisfied kids each day.

Importance of Gluten Free Options for Lunch Boxes

Most school lunches are not gluten free, and very few schools across the U.S. can fully accommodate a gluten free diet. 

Gluten is a protein found in many wheat products, which are usually staples in public school lunches. You might feel frustrated trying to figure out the best lunches to pack for your kids. Our gluten free lunch box ideas are here to help you.

Availability of Gluten Free Options

Going gluten free can be challenging if you don’t know your options. With Milton’s gluten free products, you don’t have to stop eating the foods you love. 

We take pride in producing tasty gluten free crackers with the same crunch and delicious flavors that you know and love. 

Our Cauliflower Crust Pizza is another easy, accessible gluten free food you can use in gluten free lunches. Who doesn’t love a tasty combo of cheese, sauce and crust?

We aim to make gluten free snacks and meals accessible for anyone who wants or needs to cut gluten out of their diet. Here are some of the best easy gluten free lunch box ideas for kids.

Gluten Free Lunch Box Ideas for Kids

Most kids enjoy a well-balanced, nutritious lunch with something from each food group. It can get tricky trying to incorporate grains if your child doesn’t eat gluten.

When you choose Milton’s Craft Bakers, you have plenty of options for packed gluten free lunches. Some of our most creative gluten free recipes include our crackers and cauliflower crust pizzas. 

You can add these foods to your child’s lunch box in ways that work for you. We’ve listed some of our gluten free recipes below that are perfect or your next lunch.

Tips for Meal Prepping and Packing Gluten Free Lunch Boxes

It might feel overwhelming trying to transition your children to a gluten free diet. Maybe you’ve already been following the diet for a while and need new inspiration for lunches. 

No matter what your reasons are for going gluten free as a family, you will need some helpful tips to make gluten free lunchtime easy and tasty. 

One of the best ways to give your kids gluten free lunches every day is to use naturally gluten free foods. This includes fruits, vegetables and any other foods that don’t have wheat proteins in them. 

We also recommend trying some gluten free bento box lunch ideas to create balanced, filling meals for your children.

Gluten Free Bento Box Ideas

Bento boxes have become a popular replacement for the traditional lunch. The way they are designed offers more room for different variety and presentation of foods. 

Children love bento boxes because they break their meals down into separate categories. For example, you can add Milton’s Gluten Free Crackers in one compartment and fill the rest with slices of our Cauliflower Crust Pizza, vegetables and fruits. 

This way, you can ensure your children meet all of their daily nutrient needs while still enjoying a tasty lunch. Our gluten free snack options make bento boxes so much easier!

One of the best items to include in gluten free bento boxes is cauliflower crust pizza. It’s a well-loved food for many kids and it’s easy to prepare.

  • Uncured Pepperoni
