My three year old has a kid in her class with a peanut/tree nut allergy? she wnats to take peanut butter crackers to school and I told her no. I got snacks next week and I want to keep it healthy. What do you think I should send? It has to be something that does not need refridgerated. Forgot to mention one kid also has a red dye allergy.
Thank you peimum for my beautiful siggy.

If it is just a peanut/tree nut, then there are lots of options.. You could do something like ritz crackers or cheezits-just check the ingredients list and make sure there are no nut warnings. If it says something like "may contain traces of" or "manufactured on equipment that also processes" peanuts, then don't buy that one-but you could check different brands. I would avoid anything with chocolate; alot of that has peanut warnings.

My kids love raisins, cheerios, potato chips, fruit snacks-(although the fruit snacks/gummy snacks would probably have something with red dye in it-but maybe they could just remove the red ones for that little girl?) I hope this helps a little..also you could check in our sub-forum, "Getting Started" there's a couple of links to peanut-free resources there too!

Hey! Thank you for being concerned for her classmates' well-being!!

Plain crackers (always double check labels) are always a great option. For sweets, mine love Nutri-Grain bars and the store brand ones.

Huge hugs from your friend whose preschool son has a life-threatening nut allergy!

Most snacks have the little peanut free label as well, which is a quick way to know for sure. Good luck!
