Every mom of a gluten-free kid will tell you that you have to have a “Gluten-Free Cupcake Plan.” Children’s activities outside the home, especially classroom events, are rife with cupcakes. Gluten-full cupcakes. Lots of ‘em. What can you as a parent do to ensure that your child stays safe and does not feel “different”?
Maggie of She Let Them Eat Cake (and The Balanced Platter) offers a few solutions for you. One involves a Mary Poppins size purse (what parent can’t relate to that?) and the other involves a cupcake plan. As Maggie says, “Everyone who feeds gluten-free kids needs a recipe for both chocolate and vanilla cupcakes.” Here’s Maggie gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan Vanilla Cupcake recipe (which was originally shared in the very helpful 30 Days to Easy Gluten-Free Living series). She also talks about how to raise gluten-free children. Maggie was specifically discussing raising preschoolers, but her advice holds true for even slightly older gluten-free children and is worth a read. And you’ll be visiting her post anyway to get this gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan Vanilla Cupcake recipe, right?
