    Good morning,

    I am on the look out for snack lists that can be distributed to parents with gluten free, dairy free, peanut free snack ideas.  Does anyone have a good resource?

    Thank you!

    Hi Kara,

    I like snack safely: https://snacksafely.com/safe-snack-guide/
    You can create customized lists.  Of note, there are advertisements on the snack guides and the products listed are often brands like Enjoy Life or other expensive brands.  I don't often see more affordable brands listed.  The guides do state they need to be updated every so often, so there is an expiration date on any list you print.

    I highly recommend taking some time to walk around your town's grocery stores and find other items that meet the dietary needs that might not be on the snack safely guide and make a list that you can include with the snack safely guide.  I've done this for students and parents appreciate knowing what is available in town.  I also like to make a "treat" list for birthday or classroom parties that is separate from the regular snack list.
