I know there have been threads about this in the past, but some are older and I want to recheck with some of you...

I want to give my toddler fruit bars and got a good read from Kellogs when I recently called. However, I can't stop thinking about some of the horror stories I've read here.

Does anyone eat or feed their kids these fruit bars with no issues? My daughter is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and eggs.

Thanks for any help!

My son used to eat them before we found out he was PA. We never had any problems, but have stopped using them and many other processed foods just to reduce the risk of exposure.

My PA/TNA son has eaten the Nutrigrain bars for at least two years (I usually get the mini ones that come in a pouch). He's never had a problem.

Nutrigrain bars are practically a staple in our household. We have used them for years with absolutely no reactions of any kind.
I have also bought the minis, twists and frosted (isn't there some with this on it--I cannot remember).
Anyway, we love them and will always continue to eat them.

This is one of the very few Kellogg's products I'm comfortable with. The plain fruit Nutrigrain bars have been a staple in our house for the past 3 years since Ian's diagnosis, and we've never had a problem.

My PA eats the Kellogg's nutri-grain bars, nutri-grain minis and the Special K bars. I trust them enough to send that and his water with him when he goes golfing!

We use them, too, and have for years. No problems at all, ever.

We also use them, though DS is pretty tired of them now. He loves the Special K bars, and the Mini Granola Bites, too. No problems...

Just curious if folks are comfortable with these. I am still a bit hesitant to let my son try them.
