Safe Granola Bars?
My ped said to forget about granola bars b/c they are all "may contain", which is my fine, my PA son wouldn't notice if I never bought them again. But my 2 step daughters live with us and I used to buy Nutrigrain bars, Quaker granola bars for their school lunches. I was going to still buy them and put them in a specially marked container for them - but I just couldn't do it today - the Quaker Granola Bars clearly stated "May contain peanut", and I just don't want them in the house. It's the one place I don't want him to feel restricted and bad that he can't have something. I did buy the Nutrigrain. Any other "safeish" suggestions? Again he won't be eating them, but just in case he accidentally gets one.
I thought about making them from scratch, but I have a 4 month old, and that is just not going to happen every week.
