6 Allergen-Free Snacks for Kids
School parties can be a minefield for children who suffer from food allergies, and anxiety-inducing for parents. Go to the head of the class with treats everyone can enjoy.
What to Serve
With, seemingly, more and more children being diagnosed with food allergies nowadays, the question of what to serve at school parties and other events has become more weighted. The advantage of the snacks here: They’re friendly to food-allergy sufferers but tasty enough to appeal to everyone. Plus, packaged foods are preferable to homemade, because of the reduced risk of cross-contamination. (Always bring along any packaging so a parent or teacher can double-check the label.)
