Safe Snacks for Peanut/Tree Nut allergy students:


1.  Though the snacks listed below were safe when the list was compiled, it is possible that a change was made, andan item is no longer safe.  Please check ingredients and processing information, and bring empty packaging to show the parents of the allergic child.

2.  It is important that the specific BRAND mentioned is the one used as similar products from different companies are processed differently and may or may not be safe.

3.  Please do not use stoneware products (for example: Pampered Chef) when baking for the class.  The nut oils seep into these products and could cause problems for those with allergies.

Thank you!
