Does your child have an allergy or does your child have an allergy-friendly school? If you’re like us, it’s easy to fall into a bit of a rut when packing our kids’ lunch. Allergy restrictions can seemingly create a narrow set of options, and it’s easy to pack the same safe snacks over and over.
That’s where we come in! Level up your lunch game by adding these crowd-pleasers to your lunchtime rotation.
Two quick notes before you rush to read them. As most parents of kids with allergies know, it pays to read a product’s ingredient list. Both production methods and ingredients may change over time, so we advise taking a moment to double-check for restricted allergens before putting schoolbound treats in your cart.
If your kiddo is a fan of hummus and crispy snacks, give these roasted snacks a try. They are a great source of vegetarian protein, simple to prepare, and can be seasoned according to your child’s tastes. Below is our default, but feel free to edit and adjust.
