10 Easy and Delicious Allergy-Friendly Snack Ideas

Are you looking for easy allergy-friendly snack ideas to take to school or have at a birthday party? As one of the unfortunate members of the kids-with-allergies club, we understand how important it is to keep other kids safe while attending play dates or school. When my older daughter started preschool, it wasn’t just her allergies I had to be on the lookout for anymore, but also her classmate with nut allergies. That severely limited our already limited options of prepackaged snacks to send in for the class.

Food allergies can make it difficult and unsafe for kids to enjoy treats at parties. These snacks work well for birthday parties, school events, and play dates. If you want a worry-free snack that everyone can enjoy, here are some fun and delicious allergy friendly snack ideas that kids will love to eat!

So, to save others the trouble and stress of figuring out what the heck is safe, I have compiled a list of some of our favorite snack ideas that are soy, dairy, gluten, fish/shellfish, peanut/nut and egg free. If you want a worry-free snack that everyone can enjoy, here are some fun and delicious ideas that kids will love to eat!

Important note: I know some kids are severely allergic or anaphylactic so be sure to check with the parents or teacher if the food needs to be, not only free of the allergen, but also made in a dedicated manufacturing facility. It should say on the bottom of the ingredient list!
