thanks for the ideas! My son announced this morning that he is tired of sandwiches. I think I will make the quesadilla for lunch tomorrow!

My son was loving homemade bread with sunbutter and jelly, but he hit his limits I guess. �� At least we just have one more month of school.

You are "kids with food allergies" not "kids with nut allergies" it would be cool if you posted items that steer clear of most top allergens or at least the most common childhood allergens.

Misty - this particular blog post was about pb&j options since pb&j is often a popular thing to pack for school lunches and it is also quite messy! We have had posts in the past about all kinds of options for various allergies. For more ideas, check out our recipe database - http://www.kidswithfoodallergi...ge/recipes-diet.aspx

Yes, it was about PB&J but "no PB- take a bunch of cheese and dairy" is a constant thing. It's advice everywhere and always frustrating. Parents share things like this and everybody proudly shows up PB free but still deadly to kids with the most common childhood allergen. I know you do a lot of other posts with things, I appreciate this site and didn't mean it to be ungrateful. It would just be nice if the back to school "don't do nuts" posts were chosen to be lighter on other common...

Thank you for that feedback @mistysue . It can be very frustrating when the focus is on peanuts, but your kids are allergic to other things that are common as well. That used to frustrate me when my kids were younger - we had to avoid peanuts in their classroom, but all the alternatives were issues for my kids (dairy, egg, corn). We strive to make our food and recipe blogs accessible to everyone, but that's not always possible. For instance, top-8 free recipes are not always useful for those...

@Kathy P I always appreciate education or even mentioning common allergens. I've had a number of allergy free families point out to me that their dairy item or egg item is nut free. I've had people insist items are "safe" to my son when they contain 2 or 3 of his allergens. My son is top 8 except finned fish plus some so it's an endless conversation with people who are trying to be considerate and honestly don't understand that allergies outside of nuts can be dangerous. The constant focus...
