Are Gluten-Free Foods Healthy for Children?

So, what should parents do? Read the food labels

It can be very dismaying to learn that the gluten-free snacks and food products aren't as healthy as they are advertised to be. So, what should parents really do now?

The answer is to read food labels, and compare foods side by side with one another. Gluten-free foods are costly and if they are doing nothing nutritionally for your child, it might be best to make gluten-free meals at home. Discuss gluten-free options with a nutritionist as well.

Better yet, turn to whole gluten-free grains like amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, and millet. Forget packaged goods and make your whole and unprocessed foods for your kids.
