Peanut + Tree-Nut Free School-Safe Snacks for Kids

Peanut + Tree-Nut FREE School-Safe Snacks

Looking for an ultimate list of school-safe snacks and treats?  This list is everything.  Even if your kids do not have food allergies, you need to print this list.  Most schools have gone peanut-free, and as the parent of an allergy kid, I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate this!  However, I have a slight issue with this policy: other parents don’t seem to get what it means.  Being nut-free goes far beyond banning pb&j sandwiches.  As any allergy parent can relate, we spend countless hours studying the labels on every single item before tossing it in our shopping cart.  So it can be a bit frustrating when our kids are presented with m&ms (a big no-no!) at school.

Here is my list of all the peanut and tree-nut free school-safe snacks I can think of (with the exception of fruits and veggies, of course!).  None of the items on this list contain any traces of peanuts or tree-nuts.  They also were not manufactured in peanut or tree-but facilities.  I’m very strict about what I give my son, and these are my 39 most trusted stand-bys. 🙂

  1. What a great list!! Thanks for creating it. Although I don’t have any nut allergies, I am always extra careful about what I bring places. I’m glad to see a few of our favorite snacks are on the list. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Danielle! I don’t blame other parents, because unless you have an allergy kid, you don’t realize how many things are on the un-safe list. Like, who knew m&ms, candy corn, and some fruit snack brands are cross-contaminated with nuts?!

    1. This is a pretty good list for all school-aged kids. Although, they might not be the healthiest of choices, at you least you know they’re nut-free!
