buy a nice gluten-free all-purpose flour blend or mix your own. bake and cook away.

bob's red mill has nice mixes as do a few other brands.

you can buy gf cookies, crackers, pretzels, breads, and other products. check at a nice big grocery store or natural foods store. Ask if you can't find them. I like Udi's and Rudi's, also Glutino for these things. You can also order things online. LMK if you want a couple good online sources.

just because it's not gluteny doesn't mean it's not a grain.

You can also cook quinoa, amaranth, and lots of other grains. Some legumes and things may count in the grain category as well (which really ought to be named starches anyway).

Finally, unless the kids you're feeding are also GF then buy the conventional stuff for them and the special stuff for you to cut down on costs. I buy gf stuff for me and DH and all our baked goods are GF because I am able to buy an all-purpose flour in bulk from a co-op so it's pretty cheap (as these things go anyway). But anything purchased is conventional for them.
