It’s that time of year again! The 2014 Holiday Edition of the Safe Snack Guide has arrived just in time for your Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Celebrations! This edition features a full page dedicated to peanut, tree nut and egg-free holiday-themed goodies to help you celebrate while accommodating those with life-threatening food allergies.
By restricting foods served at your classroom celebrations and holiday parties to products listed in the Guide, you avoid introducing these allergens which can cause contact reactions in children allergic to them. This is a great way of accommodating – not excluding – children with severe allergies to these foods. (We stress that the parents must always be the final arbiters of food given to a child with food allergies!)
We are pleased to announce that Nots! Snacks, makers of a line of vegan sunflower seed snacks, has joined our Manufacturer Partnership.
Nots! Sustenance Snacks are made in a facility that is free of gluten as well as the top 8 allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish) and come in a variety of flavors.
There are many ways to support the Food Allergy community. We at SnackSafely.com see it as our mission to support companies that take special care in producing quality products that are safe for those with specific allergies and sensitivities.
And there are many ways to show that support. The obvious way is to purchase their products and recommend them to others. Another is to help build the company from the ground up.
Don’t Go Nuts – a member of the SnackSafely.com Manufacturer Partnership with a number of products listed in the Safe Snack Guide – is providing an opportunity to do just that: help build the company through a crowdfunding effort that is just beginning.
It’s here! The 2014 Halloween Edition of the Safe Snack Guide is hot off the digital press, waiting for you to download your copy.
In addition to the usual goodies, there’s a whole page dedicated to Halloween treats, just in time for trick-or-treat and nut-free classroom celebrations. Again this year, we’re providing size/packaging information and indicating whether the items are individually wrapped.
As the start of the school year approaches, we receive many inquiries about the Safe Snack Guide from parents, teachers, school nurses and PTA organizations as they search for solutions to help implement nut-free classroom policies.
Here follows a collection of the most frequently asked questions complete with answers.
It’s time for parents, teachers, school nurses, administrators and PTA organizations to begin planning for the upcoming school year. As more and more school districts adopt policies to better manage allergens in the classroom, they need reliable tools to help simplify and streamline the process for parents and teachers alike.
The Safe Snack Guide provides the foundation for any nut-exclusion program. From snacks to peanut butter alternatives, the Guide provides an easy way to steer parents toward safer alternatives.
