Yes! It’s true! Even with food allergies, your kiddos can eat (almost) the same foods as everyone else! Today, we are going to talk about the typical Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich, but this time, no nuts allowed! This recipe has no peanut, tree nuts, wheat/gluten, or dairy!
One of Olivia’s new favorite meals:
No nut butter sandwich on wheat free bread, avocados with salt and fresh raspberries. Seems so simple, but in a household where we never thought Olivia could eat typical food, this simple, regular lunch is anything but simple.
Udi’s soft white sandwich bread (contains eggs)
Polaner All Fruit grape jelly (confirmed via email from B&G Foods, Inc that this grape jelly is made in a facility that does not produce products that contain dairy or wheat and that their ingredient list and allergen information will let you know if anything changes)
Sunbutter or Wowbutter – Sunbutter is free of the top 8 allergens in their product and in their facility: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, dairy, eggs, wheat, fish and shellfish. Wowbutter contains soy but is free of peanut, gluten, egg and diary and is manufactured in a facility that only contains soy.
When your child has food allergies, it can sometimes feel like there are very few options when it comes to quick and easy meals! I hope this idea of a simple no nut butter and jelly sandwich gives you and your family some peace of mind and a full belly :).
