The Safe Snack Guide
A catalog of commonly available foods that we continually update throughout the year. In addition to helping families, the Guide is intended as a resource for schools, youth sports leagues, scouting groups, clubs, parties, play dates and other events where snacks may be consumed in the presence of children with food allergies.
