None of my 5 kiddos have food allergies, but most schools now provide nut free classrooms so how can a busy family keep everyone safe? I will admit, I am not used to combing through labels. It can be frustrating to decipher what snacks pass muster in my continuing effort to send “safe” foods. Finally…a list! I have put together a quick list to refer to when packing snacks/lunches. Post it on your command center board!
Disclaimer - I am not an allergist nor a dietitian and don’t play one on TV. If something on the list appears anything but healthy, please just delete it from your own family copy. These are intended to be suggestions.
I hope to get even more healthy ideas from my pals Janice and Liz of the Meal Makeover Moms fame so watch for continued ideas in the next email! Their site is filled with awesome ideas for dinners & so much more – check it out!
Duncan Hines cake mix + vanilla frosting
Breyers Vanilla ice cream
Hood Ice Cream sandwiches
Some cupcake decorations (read label)
Further Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist, nor an allergist. I have not listed these items based on any love for the product or compensation from the company. I realize some may not be ultra healthy so just delete the ones you’d never buy in a million years!
Please be sure to read all labels on these any and other packaging. This list was all nut-free, however, companies change packaging practices!
Include the packaging of your treat when you send it to the classroom, so that the label may be re-checked if there are any questions.
