Does your gluten free child love Bob the Builder?

bob-the-builder-gf-pastaI remember when Bob and his gang were significant in our lives, and I so wish that this product had been around then. A decade ago I would have been thrilled to find some gluten free products designed for, and packaged for, children. And it is still a huge gap in the market …

I was still pretty excited this morning. Amazing how finding something new like this can make me feel quite teary in the supermarket. New to me, that is – I think it’s been around for a while.

It’s made by FunFoods4All, and as far as I can tell, is the only gluten free product they make. We found it in a big Tesco, but it’s also available online (at Gluten Free Foods Direct, for example).

And it’s actually a good product too. It’s a corn and rice based pasta, with no additives or preservatives. We bought some (yes, of course we did!) and she had some tonight. There are a variety of shapes (Scoop, Muck and Dizzy, and Roley too, Lofty and Wendy join the crew), and they hold together remarkably well when cooked – and expand a lot!

Altogether now:

“Bob the builder
Can we fix it?
Bob the builder
Yes we can!”
