This morning I made the school lunches and then opened my son’s backpack only to find a note stating that in addition to nuts, there was a severe allergy in his class that prevents me from packing any food containing cooked or un-cooked eggs. No meatballs, pancake bites, egg-containing breads or pizza dough. I can totally handle the restrictions but I feel so very sorry for all families that must deal with scary allergies. It’s a tough world we live in, and I can’t imagine the level of anxiety the child and parents feel trusting other parents to pack egg-free lunches in order to be safe in the classroom.

While I love to make food and snacks from scratch, sometimes relying on companies with high standards, where ingredients are clearly written on a package is comforting as well as convenient. We’ve rounded up a few new snacks and will be giving them all away to one lucky family. Here’s a wrap-up of what we’ve discovered, along with a giveaway of all of these snacks and MORE.

allergy free school snacks

  1. The delicious, ooey-gooey treat kids know and love. Rice Krispy squares are super easy to make, and you can freeze them individually and pop them in the lunchbox.
  2. Homemade fruit roll-ups (1 cup frozen raspberries, 1 cup frozen peaches, 1 tsp finely grated orange zest. Strain the fruit, puree, and then bake on Silpat in a 175 degree F oven for 4-5 hours).
  3. Sweet and savoury popcorn (drizzle with ¾ cup finely grated parmesan, 1 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning, 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes)
  4. Fruit salad with some fresh mint thrown in
  5. Mini muffin tin ham and egg bites
  6. Protein Energy Balls (1 1/2 cups rolled oats, 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 T chia seeds, 1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter, 3 T natural honey, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/3 cup raisins or chocolate chips, 3 T almond milk)
  7. Homemade granola bars
  8. Celery with spreadable cheese inside
  9. Avocado or cucumber sushi! (Don’t go for the fish without refrigeration).
  10. Blended banana, milk and vanilla protein powder in a bottle
