<p>My ds has been dairy free from birth and was GF until age 2 or so.  I'm taking the gluten back out though...need some ideas for lunches, he homeschools so I am able to cook :) </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, he can't eat tree nuts or peanuts.</p>
<p> </p>

<p>I pack <a href="http://www.buythecase.net/product/11018/terra_chips_plain_sweet_potato_chips/?utm_source=googleps&utm_medium=shopping&utm_term=Terra%20Chips%20Plain%20Sweet%20Potato%20Chips" target="_blank">Terra brand sweet potato chips</a> for my GF 4yo, dried cherries (Meijer has some that have no sulfides), a fruit shes not allergic to and a corn tortilla with soy cheese inside and GF lunch meat, rolled up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, pre-rice allergy I'd pack her <a href="https://www.allinkosher.com/p-47390-whole-soy-co-soy-yogurt-mixed-berry-6-oz-dairy.aspx" target="_blank">soy yogurt</a>, Ballpark beef (shes allergic to pork) weiner, ketchup (pre-tomato allergy diagnosis) and some Frito Lay corn chips.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Or</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>corn on the cob with "Best Life" spread, a hamburger patty with no bread/with soy cheese on top, fresh fruit. You could add carrots/ranch but my DD is allergic to dairy and carrots.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Corn tortilla quesadilla's (corn tortilla heated on stove, toss some shredded cheese in it and cook on both sides until melted) with sour cream or vegan sour cream, fruit or dried fruit, cooked rice (toss some butter in it).</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope that helps <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"></span></p>

<p>Larabars won't work because she said no nuts (I love them though!).</p>
<p>Stews and soups are easy to reheat. So are buckwheat waffles and sausage (breakfast for lunch)</p>
<p>banana bread with palm shortening</p>
<p>rice crackers with hummus (not sure if you have to worry about sesame seeds, but there are some out there without tahini) or rice crackers with guacamole or just mashed avocado</p>
<p>turkey burger or beef burger</p>
<p>sweet potato fries or regular fries (baked or fried)</p>
<p>hard boiled eggs (I've been making my own mayo and then using the Namaste pizza crust as a bread to make egg salad sandwiches too)</p>
<p>salmon cakes</p>
<p>We do a lot of leftovers for lunch if you can't tell.</p>

<p>Nevermind-just looked at the site. I thought there was more nut free options <span><img alt="blush.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/blush.gif"></span></p>

<p>I think most of them have almonds in them (because DS used to be able to have them), but either way, there would probably be cross-contamination from the nuts unless they kept any nut free ones on separate lines. I like the cherry ones and the chocolate coconut ones... but I can have nuts. Everyone in the real world is suprised that with all the restrictions on our diets, that we CAN have peanuts and tree nuts (except my DS who can't have almonds, but it's an intolerance). I haven't looked at their ingredients closely in a while. Do they have any nut free ones?</p>

<p>We often have leftovers from the night before for lunch. Or we do baked potatoes in the microwave and I saute some broccoli or peas with Earth Balance and lemon pepper for a quick, simple lunch.</p>

<p>Yes, any protein/granola type bar is out for him as the nut/peanut contamination is too great.  He has ALWAYS been dairy free, so even the soy cheese is out unless it's the vegan kind, which he is just not starting to accept (the taste...ugh) since all regular soy cheese still has dairy in it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good ideas though!  I made bacon wrapped hot dogs (beef..hebrew nat'l) for lunch with toothpicks. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My local store was out of organic beef last week so no hamburgs this week :(</p>

<p>I've been using the Rice Vegan cheddar cheese and I like it for mac & cheese actually. It's not that bad. I didn't like the Daiya. Chili is good on baked potatoes. I haven't done that for a while. I like these ideas. We've also done taco salads with ground beef or taco, taco seasoning (I make my own), lettuce, tomato, refried beans, black olives. Things like that are good in our family because people can choose what they can eat. I made Book of Yum's sorghum rolls the other day and made little pigs in blanket (some with breakfast sausage since DD2 can't do beef and some with beef hot dogs in them). They were delicious. meatballs dipped in gravy or sauce or ketchup.</p>

<p>I think that the lemon pie one doesn't have nuts but you'd have to double check of course</p>
