Nut-Free School Lunch Roundup 2

It’s been a while since I’ve added to my NUT-FREE School Lunch Roundup series, so here you go! Whether your child has an allergy or goes to an allergy-friendly school, there are still lots of real food options to pack. Some of these pictures include our two favorite nut-free spreads – sunflower seed butter and cream cheese – and others avoid the typical sandwich all together. I know some readers love to sit down and look at these pics with their kids so they can point out what they want (and, more importantly, what they’ll actually eat!). So I hope these ideas help.

  1. These are really helpful suggestions – my eldest daughter has a peanut allergy, and her primary school went nut free when she arrived several years ago, which I was very grateful for! So helpful to have tasty alternatives, as I want her to get the message that “there’s always an alternative” rather than focusing only on the food she can’t eat.
