Birthday Treat Advice

My son is kindergarten and his teacher celebrates every childs birthday that is in February on the 1st of the month and said we could send in a treat, but at our school it has to be healthy. Does anybody have any ideas of what I could take that nobody would have an allergic reaction too. What is sent has to be wrapped individually so each child gets there own bag.

  • I would do party favors instead of trying to send a healthy treat for the kids. Other than something like a rice crispy treat (which isn't really healthy), it's hard to know what some kids wouldn't have a reaction to. I would send in stickers or little pre-inked stampers for the kids.

    In our schools if you send any food for the children to eat it must be store bought / prepared.

  • fruit kabobs dipped in Greek yogurt.
    Zucchini quinoa muffins
    Or mix popcorn with oriental rice cracker mix and sliced nori. My kids love it.

  • as long as they can be kept cool you can do fruit and cheese kabobs

    or you could do the colored goldfish snacks/pretzels/raisins in a bag

  • I don't think there is anything you could send it to ensure that no child would be allergic to, but a trail mix (leave out peanuts, just do some mixed dry snacks with raisins) is probably safest.
