Making kids eat can be a struggle already, but add in some eating restrictions and your evening routine just got a whole lot more complicated. As per usual though, Forkly is here to help! We’ve put together a list of meals that are Gluten Free and Dairy Free to accommodate those kids that just can’t eat what the rest of us enjoy. These meals won’t make you feel like you’re missing out on a “normal” supper, in fact, you may even prefer these supper options. If everything goes as expected, your little ones will be asking for a second helping of these delicious meals.

 

1. Skinny Honey Lemon Chicken

Avoid trying to explain your child’s eating restrictions to a take out restaurant and head home to make an even better version of everyone’s favorite take out food.
