Fruit Salad…Yummy, Yummy

So, today’s snack in VBS {Vacation Bible School} was animal crackers and frosting. Believe it or not, it DOES matter what brand you buy. Some products have been manufactured around common allergens even though they may not contain allergens. But, as we all know, cross-contamination can pose a very serious risk in some people. Therefore, it’s safe to say that if you have an allergy be sure to pay attention to the fine print. (Sorry for the quality of the below pic.)

The animal cracker snack was easy to substitute. I bought the Barnum & Bailey Circus Animal Crackers because they do not contain any of the allergens that Daughter is allergic to and are not processed around any of her allergens. Most generic brands and/or Stouffer’s brand of animal crackers, she cannot have because of the processing issue. So, I just bought her a small box of the circus animal crackers and gave her a very small container of Betty Crocker Chocolate Frosting (has none of her allergens) and she was good to go!

Tomorrow, Daughter will be having Fruit Salad and because I am not sure whether the fruit salad at VBS is canned (which could pose processing issues for Daughter) I just made my own fresh fruit version of fruit salad for her. She will be having some juicy peaches, apples, bananas and blueberries. The hardest part of this will be remembering to pack it in her bag in the morning!

All of these are great snacks and super easy. I’m going to be bringing these snacks out at our house on a regular basis instead of the pre-packaged things from now on!
