Does anyone know if Jello (or any other brand of) Instant Pudding is safe? If so, what flavors do you use? I would like to feed it to my PA son.
Thanks for your help!

Sorry, B's Mom, but I'm not sure what pudding is safe. I have heard on the message boards that Jell-O is not safe, though I have eaten eat for years without problem. I will look around for a safe pudding.

I know most instant puddings also makes a Pistachio pudding. My son tested very positive for pistachio's so I will not let him have the boxed kind but I have let him have the all ready made ones.

Have you tried Kozy Shack's ready made (in refrig section) pudding? It is delicious, and has much healthier ingredients than the instant.

My son eats Swiss Miss vanilla pudding in individual containers. We haven't tried the chocolate mostly because he doesn't care for choc.

My PA daughter eats the Jello instant pudding chocolate flavor without incident. She also eats the premade Jello pudding cups in the dairy case. She loves it! Does anyone know a good and easy recipe for homemade chocolate or vanilla pudding? I'd love to make my own!

Kozy Shack ready made puddings are great! I recently discovered them and called them last month to see if they are safe (516-938-1200). The make only pudding (about 5 flavors) and they are all pnt/nut free. They do have some that are sold with M&Ms in a separate package attached to the pudding container, but they assured me the M&Ms are bought already packaged and sealed and are never opened in their facility.

I went to the grocery store today and bought some Swiss Miss chocolate pudding. We all know how messy pudding can be and my son had a small amount of pudding left around his bottom lip. I was busy with laundry so it was probably a good thirty minutes before I could wipe his mouth off but when I did I noticed his skin below his lip was very red and swollen/puffy. I immediately gave him some benadryl but two hours later it is still puffy and he said, before bed time, that it itched. I guess I will be trying to contact them tomorrow to see if anything could possibly be contaminated. It may be awhile before I hear from them because the box only lists an address (no web site or phone #) but I am going to search the web too!

Well, I found the address under ConAgra. I sent an email and will let you know I hear. From what I read they own a wide variety of products ranging from Swiss Miss pudding to Wesson oils to [img][/img] Peter Pan PB. Many more are listed too so I asked about several of their products to see what...if any...may have a chance of contamination.

I received a call from ConAgra today and was informed by them that they actually make a Chocolate PB pudding on the same lines but insist that they clean the machines thoroughly. I inquired about why they do not have warning labels and she said that they ran tests before and there was no trace of PB after they washed the machines. Obviously some got through in the one that my son ate though. Be careful and stay safe.

We are not sure if my 20-month old son is peanut/tree nut allergic, as we haven't yet had him tested. Because my 3 1/2 year old son is allergic to peanuts, we (obviously) aren't serving any nuts these days, and I intend to keep my youngest son completely nut free until he is 4-5 to do all that I can to prevent any potential allergies from developing.
The last two times he's had Jello Vanilla pudding (premade in the cups) he's thrown up. At first I thought he'd just gagged, but twice seems unlikely. Has anyone had any problems with this? There is no warning label or anything and my PA son hasn't had any problem with it so far. Could there be something else in there he is reacting to?
Thanks for any input.
