This month’s article includes ideas on where to find decent gluten free kid’s meals when dining out. The following restaurants we have taken Kate to at least a couple of times and have had really positive experiences:
Taco Time: Order the kid’s meal with a cheese quesadilla on a corn tortilla; staff is amenable to wiping the grill first. (Kate’s favourite).
Boston Pizza: Either the grilled salmon just as it comes on the kid’s menu (with drink and Jello for dessert), or as we have found they are willing to do grilled chicken with rice and steamed vegetables instead.
Wedgie’s Pizza Parlour: Gluten Free Take-Out Pizza! It was a bit like Christmas when we discovered that Wedgie’s Pizza can do nearly all of their pizzas on a GF crust. They are made on a separate pan – add $2 for GF version. (9th Ave, OK Falls ~ (250)493-9132)
Cozy Bay Seafood Café: This is my favourite. They have a ‘lighter portion’ GF Fish & Chips for kids. The food is excellent, staff is friendly and they have stickers or stamps for the kids, not to mention a singing lobster on the wall!

I would be happy to hear from parents with your ideas for GF dining, if you have some time, please send me an email. Heather (firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember to encourage you local stores to carry more Gluten Free products, so you can shop at their store!
