peanut free snacks

Postby kaykiko on Fri Mar 11, 2005 9:00 pm

Help Ladies, My daughter has just started going to a new Daycare(1yr-5yr) and there is a child that is allergic to peanut products. I have never had to worry about this so it has never been an issue. Everything that I pick up in the grocery store has (may contain nuts). So I need some suggestions on peanut free snacks, I know fruit and cheese are good choices. Any thing else???
thanks Kay :o

I would ask the daycare or parents about products that "may contain traces of nuts". This is almost always put there for liability purposes only. Many people I know with nut allergies don't worry about other people eating these items around their children. Other children's allergies are so severe that those products still cause concern.

I was one - my DD had a peanut allergy that she has thankfully outgrown. My brother has maintained an anaphylatic allergy to nuts and peanuts all his life, and we don't worry about stuff that "may contain traces of" around him.

I send, for snacks:

cut up fruit and veggies
yoghurt
cut-up veggie weiners
applesauce
cheerios and dried fruit
mini-muffins (I make these and the kids love them)

I use little Tupperware containers to send snacks in - they don't leak, can be used again and again, and I can buy in bulk or make my own snacks and save tons of money.
Raising kids is part joy and part guerilla warfare.

Also, Dare makes these neat but expensive "Bear Paws" cookies and they do go on sale. I was reading the lables and most Dare cookies are now made in a seperate factory that is nut free. Though we do not normally send sugary cookies to school, unless we do not like our daycare providers! :lol:
