7 Super Cool, Peanut-Free School LunchesBrooke McLay
For the first time ever, I have children attending a peanut-free school, and it’s throwing me for a loop on the lunch packing. It wasn’t that I’d turn often to Peanut Butter and Jelly, per se, but I realize how many of our go-to school lunch treats have peanuts or tree nuts in some form or another. Hoping to find a few great ideas that would keep school lunch simple for me to prepare, exciting for my kids to unpack, and peanut-free for our allergen-sensitive school friends, I hit the Family Kitchen and found 7 totally delicious recipes are exactly that–easy, exciting, and peanut-free. From bagels to homemade hot pockets, here are 7 school lunch foods you can pack, without putting a single peanut in your lunch box!
