  • Peanut and Tree Nut Free Snack Suggestion List

    When choosing a peanut free snack for your child's class, it is important to ALWAYS check the label on the package to make sure it is free of peanuts and nuts of all kinds. This list is only to serve as a resource. It is in no way complete and is subject to manufacturer recalls and mislabeling.

    Manufacturers may have changed their equipment or product line and method since you last purchased an item from this sheet.

    READING LABELS: Some manufacturers clearly state if a product has peanuts or nuts in it, while others, it is almost hidden.

    PLEASE READ THE LABELS each time you purchase. Do not purchase items with an allergy and ingredient alert, such as:

    "May Contain Peanut or Tree Nuts"

    "Processed on shared equipment with Peanuts or Tree Nuts" "Manufactured in a plant with Peanut or Tree Nuts"

    "Contains Peanut or Tree Nut Ingredients"

    Thank you for taking the time to read the labels and discussing the topic of "safe snacks" with your child! Your diligence is keeping an allergic child safe at school.

    ***FYI: Food is the only thing that is FDA regulated and required to put allergens on its label. Things such as potting soil do not. MIRACLE GROW potting soil contains nuts and needs to be avoided when doing planting projects in the classroom. This is not bolded on the label like a food label.
