Hey Guys! How are you all doing? I haven't been on in a while. My little guy is now 6 and in the first grade. We've been very fortunate that his school has gone peanut free. They are now forming a committee to develop a little cookbook, with ideas for parent's about easy, convenient, and safe lunch and snack ideas. Our school does not have a cafeteria, so each child brings their own lunch and snack. Do you guys have any ideas that I could submit? I understand the struggle the parents may face, but because I have always used peanut free stuff for him, it's hard for me to imagine clever substitutes. I know there are some good ideas out there. What has worked for you all? Thanks!

I'm not sure if all these links work but here are some pages other schools have done:

Another PA mom and myself did a "cookbook" for a health fair we did a few years ago. It is set up to print in book format and is a MS Word document. It has tips for cooking egg, milk and wheat free. If you want, e-mail me and you can have a copy - I'll send it to you.
Good luck with your project.

Does your school have a website or printed information regarding the decision to go peanut-free? Would it be possible to use your son's school as an example? Thanks!
