Does anyone have a list of safe snacks for their child. My child just started going to an after school program and they need a list of snacks that she CAN eat. They understand about reading labels, but still don't feel comfortable. I guess that's it. I read labels each time we buy foods, so I don't have a list to give them. I don't have time to sit in the grocery store today to make a list.

I was hoping someone had a list they could share.

Thanks for your help.

my opinion....take it for what it is.
I wouldn't do a *safe* list of snacks. Labels change all the time, different brands, different labels. I would only send a safe snack for your child, that you approve each not rely on others to read labels for you.
My sons class has a snack, they all get the same thing(I have read those labels, they are fine....) BUT I still send his own snack with him each day. It's just safer, and reinforces my rule of *you only eat what mommy gives you*!
just my opinion....

Sidney-8 (beef and chocolate, grasses, molds, weeds, guinea pig & asthma)
Jake-6 (peanut, all tree nuts, eggs, trees, grasses, weeds, molds, cats, dogs, guinea pig & eczema & asthma)
Carson-3 1/2 (milk, soy, egg, beef and pork, cats, dog, guinea pig)
Savannah-1 (milk and egg)

NicoleinNH - I'm wondering if I might be able to request a copy of your snack list as well? I added my e-mail address to my profile. I have a list for my son's parent-child class, but feel uncertain about some of the manufacturers. Thank you...

hapi2bgf-I tried to email you and it came back. I can post it here, but it will be in a messy format b/c I don't know how to do attachments.

I'll re-raise the Safe Snack and Lunch List posted under Schools (and Snacks, Recipes).
With the caveat that the one posted was originally Canadian specific - an American edition was added to the thread.
Also, as with everything, things change and the comfort zone "factor" has to be taken into account as well.
But hope it helps. [img][/img]

There but for the Grace of God, go I.
