If you’re a free-from mom, can I just say, hats off to you! So many moms are investing countless hours into the next generation, but for some, the investment is even harder due to dietary restrictions. If you’re in that group, I know how you feel, so let’s make sure you’re able to celebrate with your entire family this year.
If you’re a family member or kiddo trying to make something special for mom, I’m so excited for you. Be sure to read through the article, but also click here to pick out one of our special Mother’s Day Recipes so you can make one of the spreads at home.
Before preparing a special meal for mom this year, be sure you understand what her dietary restrictions are, and if needed, all the restrictions of the household. The goal is to make one recipe that everyone can eat together. If you’re dealing with a LOT of dietary restrictions, be sure to look through the Advanced Recipe Search on RAISE which has more than 85 filters for food allergies and special diets. That way, you’re sure to find something that meets everyone’s needs in one go.
Allergy Friendly Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes
THIS is what I’m so excited about!! Here are a few spreads that you can make with kiddos to help them celebrate mom this year. To make a spread like this come together, you’ll need a main (click here to download one of the free recipes), a serving platter or two, and something nice to hold the beverage. Additionally, some fake plants (or real ones for those not allergic) can rally liven up a table.
If mom is a LEGO fan, you can purchase LEGO flowers, build them in advance, and have them waiting in a nice vase.
Gluten Free and Dairy Free Mother’s Day Menu
For those in need of a (more full) menu that’s both gluten free and dairy free, I have several tasty ideas for you. Here are a few simple menus you can make at home at different times of the day.
Mother’s Day Breakfast Menu
Some moms enjoy something sweet for breakfast whilst others enjoy something on the savory side. No matter which way you go, don’t forget to include mom’s favourite beverage too. This might be coffee (black, with milk, iced, etc.), tea, water, or juice. You can jazz up mom’s water with fresh fruit or cucumber and call it spa water 😉.
Sweet Breakfast: Vanilla Cake Baked Doughnuts, Scrambled Eggs, Oven Baked Sausage
Savory Breakfast: Apple Sausage Breakfast Salad, Toast & Jam
For The Coffee Lover: Coffee Waffles, Poached Eggs, Bacon
For The Taco Lover: Gluten Free Breakfast Tacos, Fruit & Veg Platter
Mother’s Day Brunch Menu
If you’re looking for a few fresh ideas outside of the typical pancakes and sausage breakfast, here are four recipes that can make your brunch a real hit. These are gluten free, egg free, nut free, and allergy friendly. Also, Kid Four says those spinach muffins are life.

Breakfast Ideas Without Eggs or Milk or Bread
You know, this is actually one of my favourite requests! There are a lot of adults who are low-carb for a variety of reasons, however, we’ve been asked about bread free options for kids who just don’t like bread. Totally get it. Sometimes it’s a texture issue and other times, commercial free-from options aren’t a good fit for your family.
Keep in mind, for those who avoid bread due to taste and/or texture, chips, tortillas, and crackers are oftentimes a good substitution.
- Dairy Free Tropical Smoothie Recipe (contains cashew)
- Paleo Bacon & Brussels Recipe
- Top 8 Allergy Free Carrot Cake Power Balls Recipe
