Top 8 Free Snacks
Finding tasty and somewhat healthy snacks when avoiding one or more allergens can be tricky. Some products seem safe until you read the teeny tiny print on a label that says ‘may contain traces of’ or ‘processed in a shared facility with’ an allergen that you need to avoid.
We found some easy-to-grab snacks to pack for lunches, send into class for parties or just have handy in a pinch. Remember ALWAYS read labels and double-check ingredients/allergen statements or call the manufacturer with questions. Making this list below we checked current allergen statements on the companies websites, but ingredients can change at any time so the information below may not be entirely up to date. *post contains affiliate links
