School Snacks: No Milk...No Nuts please.

A friend emailed me asking for ideas for snacks. Her son is milk free and over the summer they worked on increasing his weight through nut snacks. She cooks / bakes with a ton of almond milk. So... when she realized his classroom would be nut free next year she was bummed to say the least. She understood the gravity but still was bummed. But leave it to my facebook friends who tried to convince her to homeschool gave her lots of great ideas. Keep the ideas coming and I will add them.

Here are a few:
  • Sunflower butter....for baking and for eating. Still waiting on a friend to tell me what the best brand is.
  • Pre-packaged milk free puddings
  • Hummus
  • Guacamole
  • Black Bean Dip
  • Various nutrition bars (maybe make them homemade)
  • Homemade granola and trail mix without nuts
  • Deviled Eggs
  • Ham roll ups without cheese..maybe with pickels
  • Enjoy Life cereal bars
  • Various nut free cereals without the milk
