Animal cookies for the allergic child

All is quiet in my house this afternoon… ahhh. But wait — something is amiss, for I have a 3 year old, not napping, somewhere around here. I eventually find her in the pantry, where she turns to look at me with a guilty (but cute) little face. She is holding what is left of a box of animal cookies. And that is my testimonial for the KinniKritters Animal Cookies made by Kinnikinnick Foods in Canada.

Not only are they gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and free of soy flour (they do contain soy lecithin), they are shaped like animals, as animal cookies should be, and they are tasty. I used to give her the Envirokidz Vanilla Animal Cookies (which are square by the way), and they are yummy, but contain soy flour. As I am now removing soy from her diet, I was thrilled to find KinniKritters, and even more thrilled that she loves them. She rarely even gets cookies, but at least I have these for those necessary occasions (you know — bribes).

Where to buy? If you can’t find them in a store near you, try Allergy Grocer or Glutenfree.com.
