Helpful Tips Provided by Schar for a Gluten-Free School Year

Schar graciously gave me permission to share this wonderful list of tips to make your child's life and yours so much easier.

Here are some helpful tips for your child's gluten-free school year:
  • Take a look at your schools menu, to decide what foods are safe for your child.
  • Download our letter, which can be handed out to teachers, nurses, and school personnel, before the school year starts
  • We also have some helpful tips to avoid cross-contamination, that may be helpful to cafeteria cooks when it comes to staying gluten-free
  • We've put together a list of 10 simple ways your child's classroom can be kept allergen free, which can be shared with teachers before you meet them.
  • Another useful item you can add to your child's backpack is ourKid's Card
    - Use this in the cafeteria, at snack time, when there is a substitute teacher, on fieldtrips, at birthday parties, at a friend's house, or whenever necessary
  • Switch it up. Peanut butter and jelly can get tiresome every day. Download our list of delicious snack choices.
