Nut-Free Lunch Options

Nowadays, making classrooms or school lunch tables “nut free” is necessary to keep kiddies with allergies safe. Whether you have a little one with an allergy or kiddos that attend an allergy-sensitive school, here are some delicious replacements for typically nut-inspired foods.

1.) Cream Cheese and Jelly
This classic sandwich is an oldie but goodie. Make it extra special with homemade jam.

2.) Soy Nut Butter
A tasty alternative for dipping apple slices, carrot sticks or with jelly on whole-grain bread.

3.) Sunflower Butter
Sunflower seeds finely ground into a creamy butter  – use as a replacement for peanut butter on sandwiches or in dressings for salads or noodle dishes.

4.) Granola Bars
Replace the nuts in your favorite granola bar recipe with a combination or crushed pretzels and pumpkin seeds – heaps of nutrition and not a nut in sight.

5.) Sweet Treats
Missing those peanut-filled goodies at the bake sale? Try replacing nuts or peanut butter chips in cookies with butterscotch chips instead.
