There are so many gluten free options now that's very easy to avoid gluten. There are tons of gluten-free flours, gluten-free bread, really... everything.

If the kids are intolerant to gluten and not severely allergic, I wouldn't think twice about taking them. You just wouldn't feed them any wheat, oat, or barley products. Also be aware that gluten is found in many processed foods. If the parents provide all food it should be no big deal.

If they are severely allergic and just a crumb of any of the above ingredients causes them problems, I would think really hard before agreeing to do it.
