I let my kids/hubby use Udi's white sandwich bread. It's not perfect, but it's not gluten. With my husband's mother having celiac disease and my having it I just don't want to take any chances with wheat.
try silver hills bakery. they have tons of options and are gluten free, non-gmo, organic ingredients, sprouted, no dairy.
it does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live

Rice cakes can make a good substitute for bread some of the time. My 4 year-old gets rice cakes instead of sandwiches for his kinder lunch, and I feel good about it because at least it's gluten free and less processed, and the teachers won't think he's being abused through lack of grains!
I buy the cheapest bread at Safeway for my family...their in-store bakery loaves. No chemicals or preservatives, no HFCS. Under $2/loaf.
Store bread doesn't interest me, but home baked or artisan bread...oh dear. Its partly my 2 year love affair with bread making that brought me to primal. So no, I'm not going to whip up a loaf of homemade bread for my family, because the chances of there being enough left to make 2 sandwiches are pretty low.
Thanks for this thread, I have been thinking about the same thing for my non-paleo son.
I buy whole wheat bread from Trader Joe's that has a very short and acceptable ingredient list. I don't think white vs. whole wheat matters much--my understanding is that there are more anti-nutrients in whole wheat, even though there are more nutrients as well, so it's kind of a wash. My son is used to whole wheat so that's what we get (he protested loudly the first time he got a sandwich on white bread!) I stopped getting the multi-grain type as it had soy in it.
For a dinner roll, I have served almond-flour based biscuits (Elana's Pantry recipe) to company and everyone seems to enjoy them. They are pretty quick to make--almond flour stuff is less picky about how it is handled than gluten flour baking, so that makes it easier.
Could hungry teens get in the habit of microwaving themselves a baked potato for a snack? Served with some good grass-fed butter, it might be tasty and easy and cheap (well, not the butter...)
I have ended up making fewer pancake-type things even though my son likes almond-flour versions--they end up with more sugar on them than seems worth it. We have also been focusing on reducing sugar, or even just replacing lots-of-ingredients sweets with simpler things like a chocolate bar or yogurt and maple syrup.
It's hard to experiment with expensive foods like GF bread or Pure Wraps ("raw, vegan, and alkaline" kind of cracked me up) when I know nobody else will eat it either if my son doesn't like it. I didn't mind so much when I could just finish his leftovers.
Great responses everyone. Yes, I don't like oatmeal, cereal or pancakes much because they tend to add too much sugar or honey. Usually they eat grains/ bread on a sandwich and occasional side with dinner.
