We all know that getting kids to eat a healthy variety of foods is not easy. In fact, sometimes the only way to get fruits and veggies into kids is to disguise the foods or sneak them into something where they have a chance of going undetected. Gluten-free kids are no different. Not only do we as parents have to try to get them to eat their veggies, but we have to keep them free of gluten, too. This may be even harder if your child is a little older and new to the gluten-free diet, as they may focus on what they are missing out on. Carrie S. Forbes, creator of Ginger Lemon Girl, has a brand new cookbook out that is sure to help with the challenge!

I have always enjoyed reading Ginger Lemon Girl, so when I heard that Carrie wrote 201 Gluten-Free Recipes for Kids, I jumped at the chance to read and review it. I love how Carrie incorporates the use of baby food purees in some of her recipes to add a boost of nutrition and the kids will never know! The Secret Beef Burgers are phenomenal and even my picky family had no idea that I made dinner just a little bit healthier that night. Shh…don’t tell them!
Do you have picky gluten-free eaters? How do you get them to eat healthy?
