My daughter is in Kindergarten and we pack a lunch almost everyday

Post by Guest »

Help! My daughter is in Kindergarten and we pack a lunch almost everyday. She literally has like 5 safe foods, all of them being warm besides peanut butter. We got a letter today that we can no longer send peanut butter due to a peanut allergy in the class!

She won’t eat warm safe foods once they get cold. Is there a way to keep the food warm that I’m not figuring out?

And is there and alternative to peanut butter that will taste similar?

I don’t have a ton of money to throw at a bunch of things she won’t eat so any leads are so much appreciated! Thank you for reading!

My daughter will not eat any pb substitute, even biscoff butter made out of biscoff cookies.

I don't know about keeping foods warm. I just stick to triscuits, crackers, chips, and dried fruit then warm food for dinner.

Thermos is my suggestion as well. Also, my son likes almond butter that I make (I’m not willing to spend a ton of money on prepackaged ones). I buy almonds in bulk, roast them in the oven and blend it in nutribullet with some light olive oil. May worth a try.

Wouldn’t your child have a right to equality. If that child allergic sit them away and wash after eating. Just because another child is allergic doesn’t mean your child has to go hungry.

I have the same problem! I tried the thermo and it didn't stay warm enough for my child's liking. I now just pack "snacks" in his lunch. I let the school know we practice nutrition at home but his lunch at school with consist of what he will eat that will fill his belly until he gets home . We pack plain croissants, crackers, little bites, gronala bars, or yogurt.

Have you tried boiling water poured in a thermos for 10 minutes and then dumping it and putting in the hot food?
