I used to send crackers in my son's lunch as his snack for snack time. But there aren't any crackers that are soy, milk and barley free. I can't get him to eat fresh fruits and vegetables (I hide them in his smoothies) so I'm having a tough time finding something I can put in his lunch for snack time. Any suggestions?

Now that I've written that, I've thought of peanuts. Any other suggestions?

Jello, goldfish chocolate grahams, oreos, fruit snacks/gummies, if you are going for healthy snacks I don't have much other than making your jello out of fruit juice and knox gelatin rather than jello mix. :/ Most kids with soy allergies..not all, but most... can tolerate soy lecithen and soy/soybean oil. Are you avoiding anything labeled wheat or only things that have barley or barley derived substances. If you have a gluten free section, that is a great place to start. Often if a company goes through the trouble of making something gluten free they make it top 8 free which means no milk or soy among other things. You can also get gluten free mixes for cookies and change the ingredients. We use gluten free mixes all the time because they almost always work with rice milk and an egg replacer. Every commercial pancake, biscuit, and cookie mix have tried turns out horrible when I substitute either nonetheless both but the gluten free ones usually work fine. AND they would have to be 100% barley and barley derivitive free.

Sometimes google actually is helpful. I found this website of resources. I will DEFINITELY be saving this one! Hope it helps more than I did.

Thanks for the ideas! We are not removing any wheat as he seems to do great with that. I'm not 100% convinced with the barley allergy, but I have eliminated all barley and barley derivatives for this month until he goes back to the allergist and I talk to him. We have also eliminated all soy including soybean oil and soy lecithin. Then after I talk to the allergist, I hope to be able to add those back in and see if he can handle that.

I also found that he can have Fritos. He is thrilled!

Lurking here... Roasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are a great snack. I was hesistant that my DS-9 would eat them, but he loves them roasted with a little cinnamon and honey. Some schools are nut free, so this is a good alternative for those.

I would hate for his school to be nut free because his main source of protein is peanut butter. We go through that like crazy! Three pieces of peanut butter toast for breakfast, peanut butter sandwich for lunch. Peanut butter toast for dinner sometimes too. Peanut butter smoothies.

Is his main source of protein peanuts because of allergies to all other sources? Just wondering, because you *can* end up over sensitizing and "causing" an allergy if you over feed one item (ie, all day every day).

Anyway, Rebecca reacts to soy lecithin, so we are 100% soy free here. I found stoneground wheat crackers at Trader Joes that are not much more cost wise, and are really good and soy free. Goldfish cinnamon grahams, pretzels (I think it's Utz that is JUST wheat?), any kind of nut/seed butter that is acceptable in your home, can you do hard boiled eggs? Target sells Market Pantry brand tortillas that are soy free, and you can roll those with a lunch meat and some lettuce and create "wheels"...
