Nut-Free & Dairy-Free Snack List (Printable!)


Sending kids to daycare, school, or even off to their first day at work can be nerve-wracking when they have food allergies or special diet needs. And even if you aren’t dealing with a nut allergy, your child’s classroom may have a “nut-free” policy. Either way, you may be left wondering what easy snacks are safe to pack. Don’t worry, I’ve partnered with So Delicious to put together an incredibly useful Nut-Free & Dairy-Free Snack List.

  1. Alisa, this is such a great resource! Thanks for putting it together. I really love the “make it” section- you’ve included so many easy, homemade snack ideas. “Ants On A Log” is such a classic but you know, I’ve never seen or thought of “red ants”…such a cute idea!

    • Sometimes we forget about the simple things! I’m always hearing “but we hate raisins”! So I tried with “craisins” and they are great that way, too! For some reason, more kids seem to like dried cranberries over raisins.

  2. So many great ideas! I already have my wheels turning as my daughter’s good friend is in her class again this year and has a dairy allergy. There aren’t suppose to be cookies, cakes, and other unhealthy snacks for birthday treats. Their list of “healthy” treats floored me as fruit snacks were listed, even my husband was like what? We aren’t allowed to make treats to share but I’m always looking for great ideas to bring when bring snacks when I volunteer, when Aurora brings birthday treats, and for school parties which I often plan. It’s always amazing how many parents volunteer to help bring something and then either throw a fit about the chocolate chips I listed because they are a couple dollars more per bag or ignore it and send in the cheapest ones they find (which include dairy). I try to explain all kids should be included in the party and not have a “special” treat but the same as others and it isn’t even my child with the allergy. Sorry for the long post.

    • Thanks for sharing this Sarah! It is crazy how people will spend a bunch on birthday celebrations without a second thought, but $2 more on a whole bag of chocolate chips to cover dozens of treats and it’s just “too much”. I hope this list helps out with your gang, and many others. It’s a good starting point and many of the products are very readily available.
