Safe Snacking

I love to help others dealing with food allergies to find safe foods to eat. As we send our children back to school, it is so important to send our kids with foods that are safe for them and the other children. 1 in 13 children have food allergies! Peanut allergies are the most common food allergy and can be so dangerous. Trace amounts of peanuts can cause a reaction- and some can be deadly. I have compiled a list of some ideas for peanut free snacks to send with your little ones to school that will keep them safe and taste great!
