Lunch Ideas for Kids with Nut Allergies

All three of my kiddos have nut allergies. They are allergic to both peanuts and tree nuts, so we avoid anything with any mention of nuts ("contains nuts", "may contain nuts",  "manufactured in a plant with nuts", etc.)

This can make packing lunch a challenge. Unlike me though, they CAN eat gluten.  
So here are some simple school lunch ideas that I use for my nut allergy kids....
(These items are NOT all gluten free)

Ham or turkey sandwich (we love Boars Head!) 
Jelly biscuit
Blueberry muffins 
(Here's a simple healthy recipe or you can grab the Udi's Blueberry Muffins, which are quick and yummy too!)

Carrot slices
Sliced grapes
Cheese sticks
Celery sticks
Applesauce (my kids LOVE strawberry applesauce!)
Original Cheerios
Snack Pack Chocolate Pudding or Vanilla Pudding 
Honey Maid graham snacks
Goldfish brand crackers
Betty Crocker gummy snacks
Smartfoods White Cheddar Popcorn
Gogurt yogurt

(Always remember to double check labels too, as ingredients can change)
