Just looking for some snack suggestions. It seems like all the feingold snacks on the list have peanut traces. I can't find any cookies, crackers or candy. thanks!

One of my friends has her children on the Feingold diet. She is active on their web site.
AND, yes just about everything that her children can have my children cannot. It is very difficult to eat lunch together. We typically end up going to McDs and she brings Pringles for her kids instead of them eating the fries.
I will ask her for some suggestions. I do know there are some but not very many.

This is what my friend replied:
Here are some that I KNOW are "clean" (FG & Peanut free):
Pep-o-mint Lifesavers
Nabisco Teddy Grahams and "Dora" Teddy Grahams (honey only)
St Claire Lime & Guava Tarts (like sweet tarts, available & others)
People Drops & People Pops: hard candies & lollipops (available online- same)
Tropical Source Mango Papaya hard candies (in a roll like Whole Foods or online)
(PS...if she is Stage 2, there are more options...I am only giving Stage 1 options)
Nabisco Premium Saltines & Oyster crackers?
Newman's Own Popcorn (microwave)
Smartfood Popcorn?
Fritos, Natural White Cheddar Cheetos, Lays original, Ruffles original, Sunchips
Pringles original & sour cream & onion
Tostito's White Corn Tortilla chips
Newman's own pretzels
Utz pretzels (at Sam's)
Panda Black Licorice?
Fruitfull frozen fruit bars: banana, chocolate yogurt, coconut, lemon, mango cream, pinacolada, pinapple (I find these at whole foods)
Walkers shortbread cookies?
Stretch island Fruit leather (stage 1 flavors)
Bob's Pepermint Snow Canes (candy canes at Christmas...just white)
Pearson Mint Patties??
Whole Foods Marshmellows (in the bakery section)
Nikky, I just want to add that I [b]DO NOT KNOW[/b] if [b]ALL[/b] these foods are [b]PA SAFE[/b].
My pa son does eat the "Dora" teddy grahams with absolutely no problems. He also eats Nabisco Premium Saltines & Oyster crackers, Fritos, Lays original, Ruffles original, Sunchips, Pringles original and Tostito's White Corn Tortilla chips with no problems as well.
She also suggested that you go to the Feingold board and check there.
Hope this helps.

My friend sent me more to add to the list:
These are her words. Not mine. FYI, In this list, my ds has not had any of these.
Rock candy (we get it in a box, loose, at Cracker barrel, or the sticks online at
Grape Nuts
Pecan Pralines made with Grape Nuts or Quick Oatmeal in place of the pecans
If soy is not a problem, "I'm Healthy" Solynut butter is FG Stage 1 and peanut free (made in a peanut free facility)

Thank you SOOOOOO much. Your information is very helpful. I've been to the feingold chat board and I cannot figure it out. It does not work like this one. The online candies will be especially nice. I couldn't find anything at whole foods like that. I will be sure to check for the PA traces with the companies. Thanks again for the help and thank your freind for me too!!
