Thanks for all the beautiful photos - I am trying to get mentally in gear for next week... Our school has a very strict policy against all nuts, and even soy butters and also granola bars or treats that aren't labelled 'nut-free'. I think the policy is a bit hard for the parents of new JKs, but everybody gets used to it fairly quickly. Suspect Items are sent home with a reminder note. The policy hasn't given our nut allergy parents ANY false sense of security at all, that I can see. I would also add that the school has pretty good rules around hand washing after eating. I think your school is worried about parent backlash, and are taking the easy route... However, I really just wanted to thank you for the ideas for my grocery list!

I've followed/implemented your lunch ideas last year with moderate success due to the cream cheese. I did that, and my boys hated it. In desperation this summer, I used ricotta cheese in place of cream cheese. Success. I had equal success with hummus.

Great to hear Kim! My girls love the garden cream cheese but I'm glad you found luck with ricotta and hummus. Thanks for sharing!
