“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” Paulo Coehlo ~ Making things better for those we love.

It’s Valentines DAy! A day of LUV… 🙂 This post is all about the little one’s today & making their Gluten Free Valentines Days come true! 🙂

Children buy their little Valentines Cards and give them out, some hand made to be treasured forever by those who received them… Parties are full of Cupcakes with hearts on them, little heart shaped cookies candies with little sayings… but what about little one’s with allergies and the need to be gluten free? How can we make their day better?

With this day of “love” and the innocence of children, I cannot help but remember my own childhood riddled with Allergies preventing me from eating things like others. As much as mom tried, it was still difficult because there weren’t the products and knowledge so readily available.

So, for all the joyous little ones, this post is for you! 🙂 I have no little cherubs myself, but have enjoyed the innocence, simplicity and comedy of children all my life. Animals too! 🙂

For those who have little one’s they care about that must be gluten free, please enjoy the following recommendations! Also, at the bottom are gluten free doggies recipes for those who spoil their canine friends too. Maybe you could make a fun day of baking special gluten free doggie cookies with your little ones to spoil their best friends. 🙂 How fun would that be… huh?

To me, the idea of children making treats for their doggies was just too cute to leave out. 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

Till next time, Happy Reading and Eating!
