I don't know about you but I LOVE nuts! My son does too but, unfortunately, he can't have one of his favorite snacks at school because, usually and by default (!), granola bars contain nuts and at school snack time those are not allowed.
Nowadays with the widespread range of allergies that our kids are exposed to, food can be dangerous and put them at risk. My kids don't have any allergies but we know that a lot of their friends have them and so we also have to be very attentive about the subject.
There are some nut-free alternatives that we can by either at the supermarket or online. One of the latest brands we've come to know at our house was Don't Go Nuts - the brand is a division of Pinto Barn Inc. , a company that was founded by Lily Pinto's parents with the purpose of creating products that will help people healthier whole lives. The company does this by creating delicious nut-free, gluten-free, organic foods for both kids and adults.
Let me tell you a little bit more about the origins of the brand. Lily Pinto is the inspiration for the brand. When she was 3 years old she was diagnosed with severe peanut and tree nut allergies. Being born in an entrepreneurial family, allowed Lily to see her family create this company for children like her and the world around them.
Great solutions for back to school snacking: pair the bars with a yogurt or some fresh fruit and your kids will have a satisfying and nutritious snack to much on!
