Peanut-free snacks are becoming more and more popular in schools and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for parents to find healthy, fun and delicious snacks to pack in their lunches.
To help parents find ideas, many schools have sent out peanut-free snack lists. These lists, while helpful in some respects, can be quite boring if the school doesn’t take time in planning their list. A few weeks ago, we published an article on cool and fun peanut-free snacks for kids. You might want to check it out if you’re looking for some fun and interesting ideas.
If you’re looking for a resourceful, reputable list, you can check out the government-issued peanut-free snacks list here. In addition, there are several other websites that have published fun and healthy peanut-free snacks that your kids will love. 100DaysofRealFood.com,FoodAllergies.about.com and PeanutAllergyKid.com all have really great ideas and recipes for this particular type of snack.
If you’re making your child’s lunch and you’re not sure whether the snack is peanut-free, always call the school beforehand. With this type of situation, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
