Gluten-Free and Food Allergy Friendly "Ready-to-Eat" Meals

About a month ago, I noticed a press release for Go Picnic. This is a really neat product. It is a healthy, shelf-stable meal to take on-the-go and does not require any refrigeration or heating. The people at GoPicnic have put together convenient and "ready-to-eat" meals that aren't junk food or full of chemicals and preservatives. A number of them are food allergy friendly and gluten-free too. They come packaged in a surprisingly small cardboard container, about 4 inches by 6 inches and about 1 and 1/2 inches deep. It would fit in a briefcase, laptop bag, or carry-on very easily. I can see a lot of potential uses for them--field trips, car trips, train rides.

There are a number of GoPicnic meals to choose from including options for special diets--gluten-free, kosher, halal, and vegetarian. In addition, their kids meals do not contain any peanuts or tree nuts. I had the opportunity to try a few GoPicnic meals and they're quite tasty and satisfying. There are snack mixes, dried fruit, crackers and cheese, biscuits and jam, cookies and chocolate, and other tempting foods. Each meal came with about 6 different foods, a moist towelette, and a utensil if necessary. Most meals cost between $3.99 and $5.99. There are also deluxe meals that cost a bit more, about $7.99.
