My kids are both on a gluten-free diet for health reasons.  Raising kids gluten-free definitely has its challenges. Lets look at the snack department, for instance.  Kid-friendly, gluten-free snacks that have some much needed nutritional value in them are hard to come by.  We have a range of options in our rotation and I am always looking for new additions to keep the selection fresh for them.  The other day we came across HIPPEAS at the store as I was looking for a small bag of our usual gluten-free cheese puffs.  These puffs are larger in size than our usual pick so I figured my toddler would at least find them engaging.  Much to my surprise, when I looked at the nutritional value I saw that this snack packs 4 g of protein, 3 g of fiber and only 2 g of sugar per serving!  Any time we can include protein in their snacks it's a win win for me because I know I am not giving them empty calories.  My kids devoured the puffs (even my picky eater) and were satisfied after their snack.  I think we have a winner!  We will be including them in our snack rotation from now on.

Give them a try next time you are at the store!  Back soon!
