Your child’s school went nut free, and you’ve got a handle on that. But maybe you know of a child in their class that has an allergy to gluten or dairy, and you want to send snacks for a party that can be enjoyed by all the children in the class. Or maybe you’re hosting a party, and there will be folks attending that have food allergies. You need a quick list of top 8 free snacks without reading hundreds of labels at the store.

First, thank you for thinking ahead and doing your best to be inclusive. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate you. You see, parents like me (parents of children with food allergies) are always in preparation mode. We prepare extra food to take with us everywhere we go so that our child will have something safe to snack on.

When you think to include our needs in your plans, it means more than I can adequately express.
