7 Kid-Friendly Gluten-Free Dinners

Every family cook knows that it’s easier when everyone eats the same meal. Whether you have kids who benefit from a gluten-free diet or you prefer to eat gluten-free then a crowd-pleasing, gluten-free meal is a gift. I have lots of gluten-free recipes so I’ve pulled together 7 of the best kid-friendly ones to inspire a week’s worth of family dinners that keep everyone happy.

Huevos Rancheros
I love making tortillas because they’re so easy and taste delicious. Corn tortillas are made with masa which is gluten-free. I would eat breakfast all day long and this meal is more than substantial enough for dinner. Recipe Here

Kid-Friendly Chilli Con Carne
I make a big batch of this chilli so that I can freeze portions to cook on a day that I don’t want to cook. Adjust the spice to suit your family’s preferences. Recipe Here

Sausage and Tuna Potato Traybake
I use this dish regularly because it’s such an easy way to please everyone. Evelynne loves tuna and Henry loves sausages so I’m able to satisfy everyone in one easy traybake. Recipe Here

Chopped Chicken Salad
This salad is a protein superstar thanks to the black beans which are also a fantastic source of fibre. I haven’t got time for a salad that doesn’t fill me up so you know this is a proper meal. Recipe Here

Butter Chicken
I love curry and this delicately spiced Butter Chicken is extremely kid-friendly. It’s another dish that I can make in larges batches then freeze for a lazy, no-cook day. Recipe Here

Tomato Meatballs and Rice
My kids love meatballs and this gluten-free dish is both easy and delicious. I generally serve it with rice but you could easily serve them with cous cous, quinoa or polenta. Recipe Here

Marrowfat Pea and Bacon Fritters
I often use gram flour (ground chickpeas) in place of wheat flour because the flavour is fantastic and it behaves very similarly to plain flour. The kids like these fritters with baked beans whereas I like them with salad but that’s an easy adaptation to make so that everyone eats the same meal. Recipe Here
