Peanut and Tree Nut Free Snack List-



As we come up on the new school year next month, you may be thinking about what to send with your child for snacks and lunch. I’ve been making a list for my daughter’s school about some snacks that are nut free, that all preschoolers can enjoy. They range from organic (which I prefer, but as we all know, can be expensive) to conventional brands. Please post a comment and let me know if there are any you know about that I have missed.

These snacks should not contain peanuts, tree nuts or facility warnings, in my experience. Please let me know if you find anything different.

    I actually like the 365 Fruit strips better than fruitabu smooshed fruit (and they're cheaper). Not sure on their factory though… maybe contamination?

    What are your criteria for the nut-free snack list? Does the item only need to not have nuts or peanuts as ingredients? Or do you consider a tree nut-free and peanut-free manufacturing facility as criteria as well? It's tricky because everyone has different comfort levels. I basically stick to things only made in peanut-free and tree-nut free facilities but we have friends at school who have allergies and they eat things from the supermarket bakery.

    Hi Jennifer,Sorry, I should have said that in the post. Yes, I mean these snacks do not have tree-nuts, peanuts, and manufacturer/facility warnings. I'll try to add that to the post. thanks for clarifying!

    Thank you for putting this list out there. We have to take snacks for my daughter's cross country meets and one of the mom's mentioned her child has a peanut allergy. This list will really help.
