No time to make at the moment (new baby). School nut policy is ill-defined. I think "traces" is considered ok - most bread even says this!

Will look at suggestions. Yes they are very high in sugar. I want to give her something more substantial than fruit though. Open to other healthier/minimal prep snack ideas too?

Are you allowed to take ones that say 'may contain traces of.....' As this widens the field considerably.

And as far as I can remember some Alpen and Kellog bars are nut free my kids used to take Nature Valley Crunchy to school (back then we'd get them sent from Canadian family as hadn't arrived here). smile

Harvest Chewee bars are nut free but very high in sugar although as a treat they would be fine. What about making them yourself? I don't have a recipe but I imagine you could do them with seeds, oats, puffed wheat and dried fruit smile

DD has clubs after school most afternoons and likes to take a little snack for after school/before club. A cereal bar is perfect as filling and quick/easy to eat, plus no prep for me! However, school is nut free and they all seem to contain nuts - or can anyone suggest one that doesn't?
