List Peanut & Tree Nut-Free Safe Snacks
(list of safe snacks and manufacturers at bottom)
Please note that the items that are on this list were found via the internet. So, for the safety of the children with Peanut and Tree Nut Allergies – please take the extra time to read every label to ensure that a product is safe. This list is by no means complete.
Below is some helpful information that will help you choose products that are safe!
Read the Product Label – Every Time!
A product’s ingredient list might have been free of a specific allergen the last time you bought it, but manufacturers can change ingredients without warning. In addition to those snacks, any products with labels stating “may contain traces of peanuts or tree nuts” or “processed in a plant that process peanuts or tree nuts” are considered unsafe.
May Contain: “May contain” labels are also not considered safe for those with allergies. These labels are for what’s called unintentional “cross-contamination” of a food product. That is, a chocolate bar may not be made with peanuts, but it may have been contaminated with a trace amount of peanut because it was produced on the same manufacturing line as a peanut candy bar.
Just because a product was safe the last time you purchased it or if it is listed below doesn’t mean the ingredients have stayed the same!
It is very important to read every label before serving anything to someone with food allergies.
