Safe and Tasty Peanut-free Snacking This School Year
Part of creating a snack-safe school year for peanut-allergic children is making sure that they wear an "I Have A Peanut Allergy" wristband and that they decorate their lunchboxes with colorful no-peanuts-allowed stickers. You might also consider a precautionary measure used by Terri Esterowitz.
Terri’s daughter is allergic to peanuts and attended a peanuts-allowed school. So, Terri bought snack trays for each student in her child’s classroom. Each tray was labeled with a student’s name and distributed before snack time. The trays kept snack crumbs self-contained, and made cleanup quick and easy.
No matter how many peanut-free snack trays you possess, you need peanut-free snacks to put on them. If you’re at a loss for tasty peanut-free snacks, consider some of these scrumptious recipes:
- 1 large granny smith apple
- 2 tablespoons of your favorite PEANUT-FREE spread (we love the taste of Barney Butter!)
- 1 tablespoon chocolate chips and/or raisins
- Core apple
- Slice apple into 4 rings
- Spread a liberal amount of spread onto 2 rings
- Sprinkle chips and raisins on top of spread
- Top with 2nd apple ring and close the doors on the UFO!
- 6 Cake cones
- 1/4 cup popcorn
- 1/4 cup honey nut cheerios
- 1/4 cup goldfish
- 1/4 cup pretzel sticks
- 2 tablespoons sixlets
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- Mix all ingredients together, pack in a snack sized ziplock baggie and send to school with your child & can make their very own Snacone!
Both recipes can be easily doubled, tripled or even quadrupled to feed an entire classroom or sports team!
