If your little ones school is anything like the pre-school my oldest is going to this year, it is a peanut free zone. With the large number of children with peanut, and nut allergies in general we already got a note that peanuts, and peanut products are banned from the building.
So I started to think of what kind of alternative lunches I can send with him for the three days a week he will be eating lunch with his classroom.
One of the biggest positives is soy nut butter is allowed in the classroom which is sometimes black listed with the rest of the nut products.
I hope the list is helpful to those who are in the same position as I am this school year!
Pasta, sandwiches, fruit, and pitas are just the beginning of this list that actually sparked my appetite and made me drool while I wrote it out. Oh and please feed free to add to the list in the comment section! All the great ideas we can share as parents the better!
