Ode to Rice Chex

When we got the call that the blood test came back positive for Celiac Disease I was on my way out the door. On the way home I stopped at our local IGA and walked around. Imagine my delight when I realized one of Grace's favorite cereals was gluten free!! Not only is it gluten free it is embraced by the Celiac Disease Foundation. Cereal was on Grace's "will eat" list - thankfully it can stay.

What I love about it is it is basic, mainstream cereal we can find in any grocery store and it is reasonably priced. On the web site there are several recipes - our favorite being Muddy Buddies. Muddy Buddies is a common party food in our area therefore it isn't "Celiac food" - it is everyday kid food most kids enjoy. We made a batch an it has been great for snacking, school lunches and just for fun.
