I live in a very organic-minded community. I have to come up with pre-school cracker suggestions.

Things like goldfish crackers and triscuits won't fly. These parents want organic and preservative free. More power to them. BUT the favorite cracker was Late July -- they, of course make a peanut cracker. Do any of you have a kid-friendly suggestion? that is preservative-free and organic and peanut-free and palatable?

You could try Good Health's Cheddar Guppies. They're like goldfish but organic do not have artificial sweeteners or additives and do not have soy.

Before using Back to Nature, search them on this site and read about their practices. They do not label for cross-contamination, and they do make several products with peanuts and tree nuts.
Another possibility you can try is Kashi Tasty Little Crackers (several varieties). You can search here on those, too. The latest info I had from them is that they are safe -- dedicated lines, no nuts in that facility (although not the case for all Kashi products, so check).

I recently looked into the Cheddar Guppies, and unfortunately, they are not safe. This is the response I got from the company...
Good Afternoon,
The product does not contain nuts but it is made on the same line as products containing nuts so I would not recommend these for your daughter. (walnuts, pecans, and macadamia nuts)

Thanks for the info on the Guppies. One of the nuts DD tested positive for is walnut; she's also PA and egg-allergic. She had these after her allergy testing and was fine but I guess we were just lucky.
Honestly, how hard is it to label for these things? It would save these companies countless man-hours answering questions.

The cheddar Kashi TLC crackers most likely would not be safe for those folks who also have an allergy to sesame. The flour was listed as sesame flour.
Ingredients:
Unbleached Wheat Flour, Expeller Pressed Sunflower and/or Canola Oil, Natural Cheddar Cheese Powder (Cheddar Cheese [Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes], Whey, Salt, Natural Flavors, Disodium Phosphate), Natural Flavor, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Kashi
