Live Healthy: Packing a nut-free lunch

A growing number of schools are taking on a nut-free class policy.  For parents it can hard to find a snack that falls in line.

Nutritionist Andrea Hill says the most important thing parents can do is check the label. It’s something she says you continue to do, because sometimes a company will change it’s processing method, which means a product that may have been nut-free, is no longer.

When packing lunches look for items like dried fruit or snack bars, or soy nut butter. She does caution you to check the school before purchasing seeds, as some schools extend the policy to those as well.

Mrs. Hill also reminds parents to keep the snack balance. Be sure to have healthy fats and protein in each meal.
