Gluten Free Lunch Ideas

A month’s worth of gluten free lunches!

Here are 20 Gluten Free school lunch box ideas. That’s a whole month of school lunches. My family isn’t gluten or grain free, but I know many of you are, and I do try to limit the amount of wheat my kiddos eat.

I made it easy for you!

I’ve tried to make this an easy resource for you, so most of the lunch thumbnails below will go to a more specific description if you click them, a few will go to a product I used to make them or to a specific recipe because I didn’t make a post the day I made them.

Many of these lunches are also grain free, some are dairy free as well. I’ve included that in the description below for those that meet either criteria.

I try to include a few things in all my kids’ lunches:

  1. Good Fats: Avocados, coconut oil, butter from pastured cows, egg yolks and lard from pastured hogs are all fats I include frequently.
  2. Quality Protein: Beans, nuts, eggs, meats
  3. Organic Produce: I try to use seasonal, organic produce. Sometimes I will use dried fruit or frozen fruit (berries in yogurt or muffins for example) if I don’t have access to good, seasonal fruits and vegetables.
  4. A source of Vitamin k2: butter from pastured cows, gouda cheese, fermented foods and pastured meats are all sources of K2
  5. Bone Broth: I cook my beans and rice in bone broth and make soups and stews with it.
  6. Ferments and cultured foods: Kimchi, pickles and sauerkraut are favorites. We include a lot of full-fat organic yogurt too. I also use fermented ketchup.
