In recent years, the holiday spirit has taken its sweet time in taking over and I often don’t really feel like it’s Christmastime until the very day it arrives.

My kids don’t eat gluten free, but I do and I can only imagine how challenging it would be to be a child in school these days with these dietary restrictions. This is why products like Udi’s rock. Kids can have sandwiches, pizza, brownies, cookies and bagels that look like everyone else’s but that are…
