I am always on the lookout for allergy-friendly foods to put in my kids lunch. As much as I’d like to be able to make their lunches from scratch everyday that isn’t a reality for us. Instead I search for allergy-safe snacks that my kids will love.
I can’t compromise on quality. My son has food allergies and Plentils are free from the top 8 most common food allergens. It is really important that my son avoid wheat/gluten.
NOTE: Enjoy Life Foods recently had a voluntary recall on their 10 oz semi-sweet mini chocolate chips for undeclared ingredients. Other products were not affected. See more details.
I love the crunch and texture. They aren’t drowning in oil like potato chips, instead they are light and crisp. Oh, and they taste great! There are several flavors but I prefer the light sea salt.
Plentils help him feel like he can eat the same kind of food that other kids in his class eat. I’ve had some people tell me that it isn’t important for kids to eat “regular” food. Eating plant-based and having food allergies is already restrictive enough in my opinion, especially for a 4 year old (in a class room full of kids eating unsafe foods). These are safe for my little guy, he doesn’t feel like he is missing out.
We usually reserve these for lunches. I put them into one of the smaller areas of our EasyLunchBoxes containers for smaller portions (it helps them last longer).
