Keep a list of gluten-free restaurants and gluten-free chef cards in your car, backpack or purse. It also is a good idea to have some snacks that don't easily spoil. Replace these as needed. Braden, our 6-year-old son, has near meltdowns if he gets really hungry. It's is always so much better to have GF pretzels or some other snack on hand rather than run around looking for a convenient store that might have GF potato chips or some other food we'd rather he not eat.
