Please give me some idea on the cereals my P.A. granddaughter can eat. I am always in a panic when she wants to try the cereal her brother eats. Thanks.

Kellogs uses codes on their boxes to indicate which plant the cereal was made in. They have several nut-free plants. Search on Kellogs to find out what the codes are, or call them. You might also just search on cereal, or look on the manufacturer's board. The discussion about Kellogs is the only one I remember.

General Mills will list a peanut warning, as well as other common allergic ingredients, even if there is a risk of cross contamination, General Mills will list it. Everyone in my family loves the Sunrise organic cereal!

Thanks for all of your help. I feel better now that I know some I can trust. My daughter still gives her the baby cereal with fruit in it as she was afraid to try the boxed cereals. We are both very careful about her eating but since she will soon be 2 she is wanting to try different things. I so appreciate the help this site gives us.

Cheerios and Kix work well for us.

Always check the cherrios ingrediants carefully. The original flavor cherrios in the yellow box is safe. But the frosted cherrios, team cherrios and multigrain cherrios (all made by General Mills) CAN contain almond meal!!!!

I recently called the Quaker Co. about Cap'n Crunch plain, because I know they make a peanut butter flavor. The person on the phone told me that their pb products are made on dedicated lines and they sent me a letter confirming this.

It's great to have so many helpful people. Elizabeth will finally be able to eat the same thing as her brother. I would like it if there were a list on here of food that people have found to be completely safe. I have found a few cookies and crackers from reading on here. I keep thinking my daughter and I are too concerned but when you read about what is in some of the food how can you help but be? Thanks to everyone. I'm so happy we found this site!

Jeannette, glad we could help. FWIW I also give my son Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Cheerios and Rice Krispies without any problems, and in the winter he eats Cream of Rice, his favorite hot cereal.
Has anyone here used Kix? Are they OK?
