Food Allergy Snack List  

Peanut Allergy

 

PEANUT FREE / TREE NUT FREE SNACKLIST

The following foods are considered “safe” for the classroom as of this date. However, manufacturers often change ingredients; therefore, you must READ THE LABEL AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE and do not bring a food into the class if the ingredients list:  peanuts, peanut flour, peanut oil, peanut butter or any other nut.  This includes snacks with almonds, coconuts, filberts, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, walnuts, and others.

The importance of reading theingredient label each time cannot be underestimated.  Foods are NOT safe if the label has statements such as “May contain traces of peanut/tree nut…”, or “Made on equipment used in manufacturing or processing nut products…”, or “Made in a facility that manufactures or processes nuts…”

Kellogg’s, Keebler, General Mills, Betty Crocker, and Quaker Oats brands are generally good at calling out allergens on the label.

Example:  CONTAINS PEANUT AND TREE NUT INGREDIENTS

I hope this list is helpful to you as you plan for your school year.  Please be mindful of the student allergies other than peanut/tree nut.  Since this list is specific for peanut/treenut allergy, some of the items listed will not be safe for other allergies such as milk, soy, sesame or fruit.   READ ALL LABELS EVERY TIME, INGREDIENT LISTS CAN CHANGE!
