Peanut Butter Alternatives for Kids

Posted by Naturally Nutty on 9/22/2014

Parents today know that due to allergies peanut butter isn’t always safe for school lunches and preschool snacks, play dates, or potlucks. Everyone is searching for peanut butter alternatives that are healthy, protein-rich, and delicious.

Peanut allergies are more and more common. It isn’t worth sending peanut butter and potentially harming another child. The smell of peanuts or a smidge of the oil is enough to put some youngsters into anaphylactic shock.

Some parents strive to keep their homes and vehicles peanut-free even if their own children aren’t allergic because it lessens the risk for young family members and friends who visit.

What are your choices for navigating the world of peanut-free classrooms and play areas? We have some alternatives that are popular with kids, healthy to eat, and delicious for young and old alike!

Have you tried delicious seed butters? They have the same consistency as peanut butter and pack a great protein punch; plus our seed butters are peanut-free.
