What are some peanut free snacks that are also hfcs (hugh fructose corn syrup) free? I'm finding that so many nut free things have the other crap in them!

Not fruit or veggies, they eat that at home. I thought a treat would be ok for school.

  • you would be surprised what has corn syrup in it (even ketchup). its very hard to find food without it these days. i found some online you can buy. do your kids like popcorn? you can make some and send it in baggies. or some type of crackers are good. (truthfully i dont know if i've looked at like cheez its or goldfish, i'm gonna do that right now lol)

  • soy nuts, whole grain goldfish, and of course the usual veggie snacks, Have you tried going to Whole Foods? My friends son is severly allergic to peanuts and has found some good things there!

  • Check out GOgurt; I can't be positive but I'm thinking that there's no hfcs in those.

  • You can make your own goldfish crackers; make granola bars; make fruit leathers; make hummus with pita chips (send me a message offlist if you would like recipes).

    Other ideas are yogurt; cheese and whole grain crackers; Pirate Booty

  • Make your own! I've got some very healthy cookie and bread recipes at

    banana bread, shortbread cookies made with fruit instead of a ton of butter, gluten-free brownies, dried snacks and more

  • Take greek yogurt (I'm sure there's got to be a brand that comes unsweetened and HFCS free) and add honey. When it's stirred together, it tastes like cheesecake to me!
