Kid Friendly Gluten Free Products For Less at Walmart

This post is sponsored by Walmart and Sverve. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be a good fit for my readers. All opinions are 100% my own.


I have heard about gluten free products all over the place and always thought it was just for people who couldn't digest wheat products like bread and pasta. I never knew the dangers of hidden gluten ingredients in products until I was talking to one of the moms at my daughter's dance class.

I brought in these organic strawberry bars that my daughter loves to give out to the little girls in her class. I asked the moms if I could give them out to their daughters before the class was over and one of the moms asked if they were gluten free. She explained to me how her daughter was gluten intolerant. She said her daughter gets sad sometimes when other kids her age could have things that she can't. I quickly put the bars away as I didn't want her daughter to feel left out and told her I would bring in some gluten free snacks the next time.

While I was shopping at Walmart last weekend I noticed they were having a gluten free event. There were little sample carts all over the grocery section with different products to try that were gluten free. I was so surprised to see things like burritos, pizza, cookies and bars. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try out some different products that I could take to my daughter's dance class.


My absolute favorite was the Van's PB & Strawberry and PB & Blueberry bars. I loved how they tasted just like the strawberry bars but with the added flavor of peanut butter. I bought both of the varieties and let my daughter try them out. All she kept saying was "yummy!" and gobbled it up. I asked her if she wanted to share them with her friends at her dance class and she yelled "Yes!".




It was great picking them up at Walmart because they were very affordable. With it being such a huge store they carried a big assortment of gluten free products from frozen entrees to snacks and desserts. Head on over to the Walmart Page to find out the varieties of gluten free products they offer.

  3. That's great to know. One of the reasons I don't buy "healthier" foods is because of the cost.

  6. I have actually tried those. I grabbed one when I was in line at Trader Joe's one day. I luckily do not have to be worried about gluten and am not even sure I noticed that they were gluten free at the time. What I did notice was how good they tasted!!

  9. I totally agree with Erica... they do look delicious and we don't have to worry about gluten either, but I do have a few friends that do. Also, I never tried anything that is gluten free so I wouldn't know one way or the other.

  16. My best friend is gluten-intolerant. It is so nice to see so many different options available for her now. When she first found out what was making her so sick (gluten), finding pre-packaged foods she could eat was really difficult. Now they're readily available.
