Yeah...I was thinking of buying a few pre-made GF items just to get us thru til I get my check to go buy the basic ingredients to make the things myself. All the flours and necessities to make cakes, breads, pastas are so expensive. My hubby is kicking and screaming thru this whole transition because he loves the aforementioned items and I think he actually has the worst problem with them. Go figure. Thanks for all the advice and ideas! Crazy but I guess I got stuck in one of the "sandwich for lunch modes" and drew a blank for alternatives. Some great ideas though! Gonna have to jump on the fresh veg and dip and boiled eggs (the kids are picky but they do like those things

I would generally advise against much of the GF "junk" out there. It's often made with refined/processed grains without much real nutritional value. It also often is high in added sugars.

You can also do lettuce wraps (turkey, ham (but read labels) or I prefer avocado, hummus, red pepper. Rice and beans are another healthy choice

I eat a lot of meat/protein with vegetable/fruit kinds of meals.

I'm not much of a recipe cook. And, I don't have toddlers -- my kids are grown and it's often just myself and my husband for meals. But, I often pick and choose from some of the following. Tweek the ideas for what might work for your little one. (Or, if you do wraps, you could use a corn tortilla, or make it into a quesadilla.)

Leftover chicken, ham, ground beef. Or cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese. Yogurt or cottage cheese.
Either raw veggies (two year olds may not be able to chew as easily though) dipped in ranch dressing. Or, a favorite cooked frozen vegetable. Fruits are always good.
Casseroles that have meat and vegetables. Just leave out the pastas or other gluten. Can add potatoes or rice to a casserole.

I have a two year old that I believe is gluten sensitive. I was wondering if there were any lunch ideas out there that don't involve a sandwich or pasta scenario. I am drawing a total blank and we haven't made it to the store to purchase anything gluten free. There has to be something out there that doesn't involve bread, wraps or pasta. Ideas anyone?
