Need gluten and corn free snacks? I’ve made a list of a few that I’d like to share for our readers with food allergies. We know how tough it is to avoid both gluten and corn. Here’s a short list of some of our favorite gluten and corn free snacks to put in school lunch boxes.
Healthy Family readers, please leave comments if you find a product is no longer gluten and corn free. Let me know if you have a new gluten and corn free product to suggest, too. I will update this page with the new information. If you are a manufacturer that makes gluten and corn free snacks and food products please comment below. I will get in touch with you via email about your product. Together we can make this list valuable to folks who need to avoid both gluten and corn.
Our Favorite Gluten and Corn Free Snacks
We love to pack gluten and corn free snacks in our lunchboxes, but we always buy organic. We are also careful to buy fruit and veggies that are not waxed. To learn more about it, read: Fruit Wax Ingredients Revealed: What’s on the Wax Covering Your Fruit?
Sunmaid Raisins (Mini Boxes)
These are 100% all natural. My preschoolers love the freedom of snacking with their own 1.5 ounce box of Sun-Maid Raisins. I like them because they make a great addition to a gluten and corn free lunchbox. Sunmaid raisins in the mini sized individual boxes and in the large containers may not be gluten and corn free too. Please verify with the manufacturer before you buy.
Nana’s offers a wide variety of products to choose from. They claim all of their gluten-free products are also corn-free. Their no-wheat cookies are corn-free as well but contain gluten from barley and oats. Nana’s has confirmed via email message that their aluminum-free baking powder ingredients are not made with cornstarch. UPDATE: Nana’s also confirmed by phone in 2010 that their vanilla is corn free; they use vanilla bean and not vanilla extract. In 2011 their website states that their cookies are corn-free but the ingredient lists ‘natural vanilla extract’ on their cookies. Nana’s also uses xanthan gum in their cookies.
Enjoy Life Brand is made in a dedicated nut and gluten-free bakery. They are specially formulated and tested (based on product) to ensure that they are free of corn protein.

NOTE: Enjoy Life has notified me that their Trail Mix and Chocolate Chips are both made without xantham gum and are completely free of wheat and corn derivatives.
