Acceptable Treats for Roosevelt Students
Every year we are seeing more students who have severe food allergies. These allergies are very serious and can be fatal. In order for us to keep all of our students safe, below is a list of foods that can be brought in for holiday parties and birthdays. These are the only treats that we will accept. If you have questions about a food or snack please contact Mrs. Palmer prior to purchasing or bringing your treat to the school. If items other than those on the list are sent in, we will return them to the student to bring home. We will not accept any home baked / prepared items or store bakery items that are not commercially sealed due to the possibility of exposure to allergens or cross contamination. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Peanut and Tree Nut Free Snack Suggestion List
When choosing a peanut free snack for your child’s class, it is important to ALWAYS check the label on the package to make sure it is free of peanuts and nuts of all kinds. This list is only to serve as a resource. It is in no way complete and is subject to manufacturer recalls and mislabeling. Manufacturers may have changed their equipment or product line and method since you last purchased an item from this sheet.
READING LABELS: Some manufacturers clearly state if a product has peanut or nuts in it while others, it is almost hidden. PLEASE READ THE LABELS, each time you purchase. Do not purchase items with the allergy and ingredient alert such as:
“May Contain Peanut or Tree Nuts”
“Processed on shared equipment with Peanuts and Tree Nuts”
“Manufactured in a plant with Peanut or Tree Nuts”
“Contains Peanut or Tree Nut Ingredients”
Thank you for taking the time to read the labels and discussing the topic of “safe snacks” with your child! Your diligence is keeping an allergic child safe at school.
