50 non peanut Airplane Snacks

Surviving long haul flights with kids is bad enough as it is, toddlers have an independent streak, they want to be active and they love routine, flying with a child that has severe food allergies can send waves of fear through your body, but with all these non peanut related snacks you won’t need to bring peanuts on the plane causing a possible life threatening allergy.

Arren was diagnosed with severe food allergies at 6 months, and with that came a whole different level of fear, the fear of people not understanding allergens, the fear of having to experience a little person going into anaphalaxys and the fear of making other people feel uncomfortable.  Instead I wanted to show people that you can bring snacks on board that doesn’t require any peanuts or nuts for that matter.

and because of Arren’s allergies, we have to bring Arren’s own meals on board, so we are planning on bringing more substantial food along.
