Being the parent of a child with allergies is not easy. Not by a long stretch. While there are certainly worse things that could happen, the constant worry your little one will put something he or she cannot tolerate into their mouths is a constant fear many parents endure on the daily. Also? Trying to find gluten free and dairy free recipes for kids that are easy to make and that actually taste good can sometimes feel impossible.
As parents, we want our kids to experience all of the joys life has to offer, and when their friends are chowing down on pizza, cookies, and cupcakes at birthday parties, we want them to have the same experience. And while friends and family might think a cheat day won’t do any harm, they are sorely mistaken. All it takes is one small bite of an allergen to cause a severe – and sometimes fatal – allergic reaction, making it difficult for parents and caregivers of kids with allergies to relax.
The good news is that food allergies and sensitivities are much more common today than ever before, and thanks to the wonderful world of Pinterest, finding gluten free and dairy free recipes for kids has never been easier.
From Zucchini Banana Oatmeal Pancakes to Paleo Pizza Crust, we’ve rounded up 24 of our favorite allergy-friendly recipes for kids who can’t tolerate gluten and dairy.
