Need Classroom Special Snack Ideas

Recommended Posts

We need Allergen free idea's

specifically: Gluten free, peanut free, egg free and vegetarian prepackaged items

If there is a easy Gluten free replacement for something I will take those as well

example: Oreo's are peanut, egg and vegetarian but not gluten free, but there are Oreo-like cookies available gluten-free to sub with.

These are for special events so they do not have to be healthy, but not candy like either.

Thanks.

There is a oreo type cookie called k-toos by kinninick. I have to not only have gluten free snacks for my youngest son but they have to be peanut/nut free since there are kids in his class with nut allergies. These are a few things I put in his snack box: Craisens (in individual packages), snack size orville redenbachers microwave popcorn, fruit cups in natural syrup, applesauce cups, betty crocker fruit snacks/fruit roll ups, enjoy life chocolate chip and snickerdoodle cookie packs. Enjoy life also has snack bars. Can you do the chex cereals? I found a cool idea on there for fruit sushi. Here are some likns for some ideas.

I make a batch of Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownies and allow them to cool. Cut into squares and wrap with saran wrap, then with aluminun foil and freeze in large ziploc bags. Each day, I take one out as needed. Already individually wrapped and they defrost by lunchtime....

I am looking for store bought, prepackaged items for an entire classroom.

We can't do Enjoy life, Kinnikinnick, GLutino or specialty gluten-free products ( cost for an entire classroom is pricey) but most other idea's will work, thanks.

What about those little mini bananas? Clementines are in season and are fun to eat. Those kinda come in their own packaging :P I've seen pre-packaged baby carrots, grapes, and apple slices too. Do they make soy string cheese?


Gluten Free since 11/2010

Dairy Free since 01/2011

I know you want to keep cost down for an entire class, but what I do for my daughter and her dance parties (she is 3) Is I buy a bag of gluten free pretzel twists and rolos. I put the pretzel with a rolo on top and put in the oven for 1 min (350) press the rolo down with another pretzel and you have a quick allergy friendly snack :) My nephew is allergic to eggs and nuts so that is the snack my sil & I prefer because the enjoy life cookies ect are so expensive.
