Study shows gluten-free foods for kids have questionable nutritional value. Nydia Han reports during Action News at noon on July 29, 2018.

A new study concludes that gluten-free foods for children have questionable nutritional quality overall.

The researchers sampled 350 products marketed to kids.

The gluten-free foods had lower levels of sodium and lower percentages of fat.

However, those very same foods had almost 40-percent more sugar.

The researchers say it's essential parents read the label, especially if a gluten-free diet is not medically required.
