Having a child with a tree nut allergy is plain scary. I never ever ever thought I’d be on this side of the allergy fence. As a teacher, I know how serious allergies are and how important it is to keep all children safe while they are at school. Now as the mom to a two year old who has a life threatening allergy to tree nuts, I’m worried more than ever about keeping kids safe when they are at school! This is an awful territory to navigate and a very scary one too!
I know it can be hard to find snacks that are safe to send to school. That’s why I’m excited about the new, easier to read labels on products at BJ’s Wholesale Club. For one, being able to buy snacks in bulk is awesome when you have four kids. But I’m also loving how they’ve simplified their allergy labeling and have so many snacks that are marked as peanut and tree nut safe!
Kudos to BJ’s for recently helping shoppers find allergy safe snacks easier. On their own Wellsley Farms label, allergens now stand out in bold. There’s also a bold sentence indicating if an item contains allergens or if it might contain allegens because these were present in the facility where it was produced.
I recently shopped the club and stocked up on my own allergy safe snacks for school. Check it out!
I’d love to hear your ideas for kids’ lunches and school snacks that are peanut free and tree nut free! If you’ve got some good ideas, let us know in the comment section below! I always need more ideas!
