8 amazing gluten free toddler snacks

Posted 19/08/2015 in Recipe Collections

My two year old had his first ever doctors trip today. The poor boy had a fever that just wouldn't budge, so we decided it was time to head down to the clinic. I explained to him that we were going to see a doctor who was going to take his temperature just like Mummy did, and would help to make him all better. He accepted this new adventure with a bleary eyed sniffle, and off we went.

The first 15 minutes in the waiting room went really well - there was a toy box, some lovely ladies who had plenty of smiles for Mr. Two, and a fan (my boy is obsessed with fans). But before long, my poor sick bubba had just had enough. The next half hour was spent walking laps around the clinic with a very hot, very sick, loudly screaming little boy.

One tactic to cheer up my miserable little monkey was to flip through some magazines pointing out all the pictures he would usually like. No luck, but I did flip past an article on gluten free living, and it got me thinking that a collection of gluten free toddler snacks might be a good idea.

We eventually saw the doctor, and Mr. Two seemed relieved that finally we had arrived to meet this mysterious "doctor". Until the doc went to check his temperature and look in his ears - then doc got told off, good and proper! 

The little guy's misery was caused by an ear infection, and he's currently curled up in bed soundly sleeping while the antibiotics start to do their thing. He'll be back to his usual cheeky self in no time.
