Nut-Free Lunches Shouldn’t Be Stressful
One of the biggest questions we get each year during back to school is for nut-free lunch ideas. With peanut and nut allergies on the rise in recent years, many schools have issued a ban on nuts and nut butter in lunchbox and classroom snacks.
While some ban only peanut butter, I’ve heard from an increasing number of people that anything resembling peanut has also been banned, including sun or soy butter.
I’ve lived with a nut allergy my whole life. Thankfully, that is not something my boys have to deal with.
I understand the frustrations fellow parents have about not being able to send certain items in their kids’ lunchboxes to school. This can be especially frustrating for those kids who will only eat a PB&J. But it’s important to note how severe and life-threatening a nut allergy can be.
If your school has gone nut-free or you have a child with a nut allergy, we’ve got you covered with healthy and delicious nut-free ideas. Below is a list of nut free lunch ideas that your kids are sure to love.
