Expert Tips

Covered paper cups or plastic snack bags make super lunch-bag carriers. Get the kids to sticker or decorate a bunch to keep on hand for occasional welcome surprises.

Pretzel or peanut lovers will want to stir in 1 cup broken pretzels or 1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts with the cereal.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
