Gluten-free

Because many packaged foods and ingredients contain hidden gluten, it is important to read labels to ensure they are gluten-free.

You can also search recipes by breakfast or main dish (Meal Type), or search recipes by the number of WIC foods they contain (WIC Food Count).

Serving sizes listed for the recipes are the right size for adults.  Keep in mind that children need smaller serving sizes than adults.
