May 16th 2019

Eating gluten-free is very common. It is a food trend, but it’s also a really important diet for kids and grown-ups who have a gluten sensitivity or Celiac disease. Fortunately, because it’s trendy, there have been many great snack options to come out!

At Pride Enjoy, we offer a range of gluten-free, vegan baked goods. We want everyone to be able to enjoy their favorite foods. Here are some of the best gluten-free snack ideas for kids that we absolutely love!

Cookies? Really? Yep!

Mango Fruit Leather

Mango Fruit Leathers are a healthier version of fruit roll-ups, and they’re so easy to make! This snack only contains three ingredients, mango, agave, and lemon juice. All you need to do is puree all the ingredients together, and then let it dry in the oven on the lowest temperature overnight. Wow!

Gluten-Free Chex Mix

Regular Chex mix isn’t always gluten-free. Fortunately, there is an easy way for you to make some at home! You can control what you put in and what you leave out. Here are a few examples of what you can use for your homemade gluten-free Chex mix. You can use gluten-free pretzels, bagel chips, Rice Chex, Corn Chex, and peanuts for a quick kid-friendly snack.

Kale Chips

Kale is really healthy for you! It is a good source of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. You may be thinking, kale isn’t a kid-friendly snack. But when it’s baked, tossed in oil, and sprinkled with your favorite seasoning, it tastes amazing! Prepared in this way, they’re more like chips, and less like vegetables.

Gluten-Free Mozzarella Sticks

You can make gluten-free mozzarella sticks by coating vegan mozzarella cheese in gluten-free flour and gluten-free breadcrumbs. We recommend baking these over frying them, because baking them cuts down the calories and fat considerably.



Brownies are a crowd favorite. You can never go wrong with a delicious, decadent brownie. Try Pride Enjoy Fudge Brownies for a gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free treat that kids will love—if you don’t eat them first!

Baked Apple Chips

Apples are sweet and really healthy! They are full of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. You can make these apple chips by cutting thin slices of apples and baking them. Baking thin slices gives a sweet and crunchy snack.

Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas are a healthy alternative, especially if you have kids that like chips! These are great because they are really customizable. You can add some spice, some salt, or any other flavors your kids might want.

Gluten-Free Licorice

Unfortunately, store-bought licorice is not gluten-free. This alternative is gluten-free and it is also healthier for you. It only contains three ingredients! All you need is Medjool dates, freeze-dried strawberries and one type of fruit juice. We recommend pomegranate, grape, or cranberry.

Gluten-Free Animal Crackers

Kids love animal crackers. They taste great, and they’re fun to look at! Unfortunately, most store-bought animal crackers aren’t gluten-free. But you can make a healthier, gluten-free version at home. The best thing about these crackers is that your kids can help you make them and choose what animal shapes they want. Here are some of the ingredients you will need: gluten-free flour, molasses, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Cauliflower Pizza Bites

Cauliflower pizza bites are a great, healthy alternative to regular pizza bites. Plus, these are completely grain-free, because the “dough” part of the bites are made from cauliflower! The best thing about these snacks is that they are completely customizable. You can even let your kids make their own with their favorite toppings.

Gluten-Free Flavored Popcorn

Popcorn is a family favorite. It is crunchy, satisfying, and delicious. By default, popcorn is gluten-free. But the toppings that are often put onto popcorn are not gluten-free. So why not make the popcorn you want? You can make homemade popcorn on the stove or with an air-popper. You can also add extra flavor with things like hot sauce, salt, butter, cinnamon and sugar, etc.
