Nom Nom Nom! Top 10 Healthy, Nut-Free Snacks for School

by Erin Dower

Are you stumped for snack ideas because your child can't eat nuts — or can't bring nuts to school due to a classmate's peanut allergy? Besides fresh fruit and veggies, learn some other easy, packable, healthy snacks that kids can bring to school for a safe, nut-free snack time. Just be sure to read the ingredients list and any notes below it on nutrition labels every time you purchase foods to confirm they are nut-free and not packaged in a facility that handles nuts. Manufacturing processes can change at any time. Take a look at our nut-free lunch ideas, too!
