Nut Safe School Snacks for Preschooler
Hello everyone! This is the first time I am sending my DD (2 1/2 PN & TN allergic) to preschool and I am trying to put together her bag/box of safe snacks. The school is not nut free and they provide the snack. I don't feel comfortable leaving her in the hands of someone else when it comes to snack selection, so I am planning to provide all of her snacks. At home, I've been giving her Annies Bunny Grahams and Cheddar Bunnies along with the mini Saltines and lots of homemade goodies. I know the school will have Nilla Wafers, Cheez Its, Animal Crackers, Oreos, Goldfish, Pretzels.
I would love to get feedback on what everyone else sends for their kids at snack time. As well, how do you provide it? Invidually packaged? The whole box and have the teacher dish out? Make small zip lock packages at home? And do you send in a Tupperware container holding all the stuff or a bag or what? I feel like such a dummy and I really want to get organized and seem like I know I what I'm doing!!
Any help would be great! Thanks!
