Any serving utensils will need to be metal that you use (whether it's to scoop their food out of something or for them to eat off of).

There's also various things that have gluten in them that you don't even think about. Play-Doh is the first thing at the top of my mind when it comes to daycare.
Yes, to all this. I have gluten and wheat intolerance, as well as dairy intolerance, and others. I have eliminated a lot of stuff. Soy sauce is a surprising source of gluten as well. If it's true Celiac disease, you'll need some separate cooking supplies..colander, etc. Also,you have to be very careful about flour particulates from your kitchen being in the air if they're very susceptible. Good luck though-Especially if the parents provide some food, shouldn't be too hard.
