Hi

My son started preschool and his classroom is nut free. I am having trouble thinking of some gluten free/nut free snack ideas besides fresh fruit and cheese. Any ideas for products that do not contain both?

thanks

How about gluten-free pretzels. I like the Wylde ones, they are also soy free but there are others available. Ener-g makes some and Glutino. I like to make my own 'trail mix' with raisens, pretzels, Rice Chex, and gluten-free chocolate chips.

Can you make sugar snacks? If so, Chex or Cocoa Pebbles make great "rice crispy treats." Maybe try celery w/cream cheese and raisins on top (ants on a log) - might be messy, or just little raisin boxes. Cut-up apples with one wrapped carmel each. Individual baggies of chips or corn chips w/cubbed cheese. I love popcorn/carmel corn/popcorn balls. Maybe mini-rice cakes with jelly and creamcheese (sandwich). Sandwich meat cut and rolled around a pickle (like at a party). Can't forget the easy Enjoy Life cookies and other goodies. I am allergic to nuts and celiac. It ain't easy!

Thank you all so much! These are wonderful ideas. I was having trouble kick starting my brain. I've got the gluten free down but to add the nut free as well, I panicked!!

thanks for your help!!
