peanut safe snack list for school?


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....

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. Nicole

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]

By daveo on Sep 30, 2011 has a long, frequently updated list of peanut, tree nut, egg and sesame seed free snacks. The schools, religious programs, sporting activities and clubs in our area use it as their approved snack list. It includes a disclaimer warning parents and caregivers to always check the ingredient list before giving a snack to a food allergic child.
