It seems as if that more and more children are developing peanut allergies. I don't know many facts on the problem or why this is occurring. But all I know is that it seems as if this is becoming more and more of a phenomenon.

When my son started school 8 years ago, there was no talk at his school about peanut allergies. Now that my daughter is at the same school there seems as if a lot of kids have it. They require a special table at lunch time and anyone sitting with them has to have peanut free meals. Snack time is also a concern and they want children to bring in peanut free snacks, so that their friends with allergies are not at risk.

Here is some suggestions my daughter's school passed out for Peanut Free Snacks:

1. Teddy Grahams, all varieties
2. Pepperidge Farms goldfish, all varieties
3. Honey Maid Graham Crackers
4. Kellogg's Rice Krispie Treats
5. Nabisco Wheat Thins
6. Cheese sticks
7. Smartfood popcorn
8. Cheez-its
9. Ritz crackers
10. Bugles
11. Doritos
12. Fruit Roll-ups
13. Pop-tarts
