Take all those Pinterest-inspired holiday ideas and give them a gluten-free makeover! Make food fun for your kids so that when their friends see what they have, they want some too. You can't go wrong with gluten-free chocolate sandwich cream cookies crushed with cream cheese and rolled into balls then dipped in white chocolate. Take those to a class party and the kids will be begging their parents for "Those yummy gluten-free cookies!" that your child brought.
Packing fun gluten-free lunches like the amazing Keeley McGuire does on her site makes kids excited to open their lunchbox; they won't feel like they're missing a thing! Another thing to remember is to focus on the other great things the holidays bring. Work to make food fun but not the main focus of every event. Highlight your child's and other kids' strengths by hosting a holiday themed talent show or taking a group of kids to read stories to the elderly at a local assisted living home. Those will be memories that will remain with the children far longer than what was served for dinner.
