Benefits of Gluten Free Pizza for Kids

Benefits of Gluten Free Pizza for Kids

Italian Pizza DoughGluten free diets have gotten a lot of attention lately, and not just for those who suffer celiac disease – a disease one suffers when they have an allergy to gluten. A few of the benefits that gluten free diets bring are increased energy and weight loss; but for kids, there are even more benefits that this diet can bring, and kids can get it in one of their favorite foods – gluten free pizza.  And when you advertise this benefit on your kids’ menu, just watch and see how many parents have been waiting for something just like it!

In addition to the other negative health impacts gluten can have, it can also inhibit the body’s absorption of calcium. When kids make the switch to gluten free pizza crust, their bodies will start actually using more of the calcium that’s so important to them and that they get through their regular diet. Calcium of course, is extremely important for kids to help build stronger bones and healthier teeth. In addition to that, gluten free pizza shells, and other gluten free food items, can also help with the prevention of asthma and other allergies; and it can also boost their immune system.  

Gluten free can benefit just about everyone, eliminating harmful carbs and replacing them with healthy alternatives. But for kids this can be even more important, as calcium is such an important part of every kids’ diet.

Put gluten free on your kids’ menu today and see just how thankful parents are that they now have a healthy option!
