Hi everyone,
My DS and I took a parent/child class a while ago and when I mentioned that my son had PA, the facilitator of the class gave me a list that a fellow parent with a child with a PA had compiled. This parent researched several different products for snacks/candy that not only were peanut free, but also did not contain traces of nuts, and were not manufactured on same equipment as peanuts. When bringing snacks to class for their children, the other parents in the class had a reference of approved snacks if they chose not to bring fruit or veggies.
I feel comfortable with this list and my DS has not had any reactions with these products, but of course, I would always reccommend double checking with the manufacturer of these products as ingredients and labeling always can change. I just thought it would at least be a useful starting point. If anyone has had any issues with these products I would also appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

I made a list like this a while back for my mother-in-law who loves to bring dd's treats. I think its always a good idea to have a list like this around.

Do you mean all kinds of Pringles? If I remember right, the cheez ums have coconut oil in them and I thought I read on here that PA and TNA should avoid that too. Please let me know, my daughter loves the cheez ums and we are still kind of new to this whole thing. We are positive for a PA, but were told to also avoid TN just in case.
Thanks for your help!

mom2sydney, I believe I have read posts on here that say Cheez its are ok, Cheez Ums are not... You may want to do a search on here to confirm it, I always get the two confused and its been a while since I read the posts discussing it.
Or maybe it was Cheese Nips that weren't safe...I don't remember.

This is a great list! My boys have other allergies but I think it is a great idea to have a list of treats that are "safe" for your kids on hand for teachers, grandparents, etc. I'm going to put one together ASAP for us! Great idea!
