I don’t have children with allergies, but I try to be very considerate for children who do. I made this great low sugar nut free snack mix for Zarek’s up coming Valentine’s Day Class Party.
Both Zane and Zarek have brother each in their class and those brothers have nut allergies. So when I pack their lunches I try to be very conscious of this. For Zane I make all his peanut butter sandwiches with sunflower butter instead of peanut butter.
Since I’m the room mom for Zarek’s class I try to make sure that for the class parties that the snacks are nut free. This snack mix was really easy to put together and I checked each item as I created the recipe. I originally was thinking I would put M&Ms in the mix, but they have peanuts at the plant so I went with Conversation Hearts instead.
Honestly we found out after making this Zarek doesn’t like conversation hearts so I will have to find another nut free candy option for him!
