When the clock strikes 4pm and the school day is over, many kids can think of nothing better than going home to a sweet tasting feast at the kitchen table. Being gluten free does not mean that your child has to suffer. In fact here at Gluten Free Foods, we think many of the cakes and biscuits taste even better than their gluten equivalent.
Here are our top 5 after school snacks that are certain to put a smile on your child's face (even if they have piles of homework waiting for them!)
* Warburtons Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins- these small cakes are made fresh to order and so they taste extremely moist and fluffy. The taste of the tart lemon mixed with the sweet muffin mixture really is delicious.
*Barkat's chocolate teacakes- these little marshmallow filled cakes are seriously addictive. Kids love to eat away at the chocolate coating first, followed by the marshmallow topping, so that they are left with the crunchy biscuit base- sometimes we like to do that too (don't tell anyone!)
*Glebe Farm Sultana Scone Mix- if you really want to indulge in the quintessential English afternoon tea, then this 'easy to make' scone mix is essential. The scones taste delicious warm out of the oven served with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Make the scones with your kids- a perfect after school bit of fun!
*Barkat's Pretzels- for those with less of a sweet tooth, these pretzels will certainly satisfy the post-school hunger pangs. The crispy snacks are one Barkat's most popular products and they should probably come with a warning because they are extremely addictive (we recommend buying more than one pack!)
*Barkat's chocolate filled wafers- we like to serve these wafers with a cup of milk so that the kids can dip them in, making the chocolate centre go all soft and gooey. A plate of wafers will always go down well at teatime.
