All parents want their children to be super healthy kids. And diet plays a very important role in making this happen. Some children are born sensitive to gluten, a type of protein that is found in wheat, barley, and so on. As such, it becomes essential that a parent prepares meals that are free from gluten so that children can lead a healthier life.
Many children have gotten rid of their sleep disorders, behavioral issues etc. by avoiding foods that contain gluten. And in some cases, children with autism have also been reported to have benefited from adopting a gluten-free diet.
And if you are a parent who is also thinking of trying out a gluten-free lifestyle for their kids but do not know how to go about preparing such meals, the below gluten-free breakfast recipes will help you with it.
Pancakes are one of the most eaten breakfasts in the West. As such, it makes sense that we create a gluten-free version of it. Mix gluten-free all-purpose flour with sugar, blueberries, baking soda, and some salt. Beat some eggs until it becomes foamy, and add some buttermilk and oil to it. Now, cook the pancake on a skilled and add some blueberries on top. You can add some maple syrup while serving it to the kids. Trust us, they will love it.
Eggs are one of the most useful ingredients when you are trying to create a gluten-free breakfast. And the easiest way to include eggs in the breakfast is to serve them poached. Find the freshest eggs in the market and make sure that you poach them for about 4 minutes I boiling water. Adding some vinegar to the water will serve well to maintain the stability of the egg whites during the poaching process. You can serve it on a slice of toast (obviously the gluten-free one), and you will have a healthy, kid friendly gluten-free meal ready for your child.
Waffles make for one of the best kids meal. It is crunchy, it’s sugary, and is the yummiest breakfast for kids when eaten hot. You can make them like regular waffles. Just replace the regular flour and other items with the gluten-free alternatives. That’s it. As a bonus, you can typically store them in the refrigerator for about 3 days. And if you want to avoid using maple syrup in the waffles, just have some strawberries cooked in the pan, thicken it into a smooth consistency and add it to the waffles. There you have it – the gluten-free, sugar-free waffles for your child’s breakfast.
If your kids like to nibble on some spicy things, then consider preparing some veggie nuggets. Mix in some diced vegetables with gluten-free flour and spices, and bake them for a few minutes in the oven. You can then serve them with some dips that complement the spiciness of the nuggets. Considering that we have mostly looked at sweet or neutral dishes like waffles, pancake, and poached eggs, the addition of a couple of veggie nuggets will surely add the extra zing to the breakfast.
A child’s gluten-free breakfast is incomplete without a smoothie. And we recommend that you try out a delicious protein smoothie that takes just about five minutes to prepare. Mix up some banana and vanilla in a blender and you will have a dairy free smoothie ready for your kid’s breakfast.
In addition to the above, there are many more yummy gluten-free dishes that you can create with very little additional effort. Be sure to check out the internet for these recipes and prepare them for your children so that they grow healthy.
