Asda and Amy’s Kitchen: Gluten free at the supermarket cafe

amys-kitchen-macThis is good news: Asda will be offering gluten free meals by Amy’s Kitchen in their supermarket cafes from the end of this month (April 2014).

Coeliacs will be able to have tomato soup with gluten free oatcakes, or gluten free rice mac and cheese.

Although we don’t eat in supermarket cafes very much, now that I don’t have to trail tiny children around with me, I welcome anything that makes life easier for coeliacs. There’s only so often you want to eat a baked potato.

And my daughter likes the Amy’s Kitchen rice mac and cheese; we tasted it at the London Allergy and Free From Fair last summer, and I’ve bought it several times since then. We haven’t tried Amy’s tomato soup yet.

Curiously, we did eat out in cafes a lot more frequently when the children were small – probably because they needed to be fed more regularly than they do now they’re teens. In any case, both these meals will stave off those hunger pangs whether you’re feeding a tot or a teen.

Lucy is the mother of a coeliac, and has been managing a gluten free diet for her daughter for 20 years - though, to be fair, she does do most of it herself now...

  1. Is there? I’ve just checked the pack of Rice Mac and Cheese in my freezer, and I’m not seeing that kind of disclaimer at all, just a clear statement that it is gluten free. Maybe I’m missing something? If you tell me which product you’re looking at, I’ll ask them about it…
