My children are both allergic to wheat, oatmeal, barley, etc. So all gluten free. Which is rediculous how much money it is. Even for me to make things as home made as possible it is still pricey. It makes no sense to me why you have to pay 2-3x as much for a veggie pasta or a rice bread than other products. Rice itself isn't expensive, it's not like production is that much more time consuming. I guess I don't have a question, more so a complaint that to be healthy you have to pay so much more.

Unless your children have been tested you don't know that they are "allergic" to these grains. Allergy requires an IgE response. They may be sensitve to these foods without being allergic. There is a big difference.
Don't buy special foods. Plan their diet around normal foods that they can have. My 24 mo grandson has multiple food allergies (tested, he has eczema) so I have been dealing with this issue. If they are on a gluten-free diet they can have cornmeal and rice. Brown rice can be used many ways. Use corn burito shells for wraps. Pop your own popcorn, it's a whole grain. They could maybe have rice cakes.
