Sometimes the best gluten free snacks for children are the simple ones- that use fresh ingredients and do not take too much time to assemble.
Here are some great snacking ideas included in the 7-day children’s coeliac friendly meal plan
1 Tbsp olive oil
¼ cup corn kernels
Salt to taste
Pour oil into a heavy-based saucepan with a lid. Warm over a medium heat.
Add two corn kernels to use as a guide for oil temperature. When the corn kernels pop the oil is hot enough.
Remove from the heat and add remaining corn kernels.
Return pan to the element and swirl the pan frequently to ensure the corn kernels cook evenly.
Once the kernels start to pop, tip lid slightly to allow the steam to escape.
When kernels have stopped popping, remove from the heat.
Sprinkle with salt and shake pan with lid on to distribute throughout the popcorn.
Taste the popcorn and add more salt if required.

Note: It is best to add a small amount of salt initially, taste then add more if required. It is easy to add salt but impossible to remove.
