Obviously, fruits and vegetables fit easily into the “nut-and-peanut-free” category. However, there are other ideas that offer a variety of textures and flavours.
Of course, you don’t have to have children or allergies to enjoy these healthy and delicious snacks!

Your kids will feel like they’re eating BBQ chips at snack time, but our version tastes much better and is WAY more nutritious 😉

This salsa is off the beaten path and is a great refresher! Serve it with tortilla chips! The good news is that this recipe requires only a few ingredients.
