When we found out that our kids’ schools were nut-free, we low-key panicked.
Nuts are a staple in a plant-based diet. From PBJ sandwiches to peanut sauce to nut-based energy balls, our babes eat nuts multiple times a day.
Just cutting out nuts wasn’t going to cut it…
Nuts provide vital energy, fat, protein, and minerals – we needed to find something to replace those nutrients.
While there are several nut butter swaps out there, they don’t always taste the same, and for picky eaters this created a challenge.
Nuts are an important binder in many recipes – we had to find a new sticky substance.
Our kids will only eat so many sunflower butter sandwiches before boycotting their lunch boxes!
Coming up with creative, kid-approved, plant-based lunches and snacks that are also portable and keep-well is extremely challenging.
Now add in the fact that they also need to be nut-free – it seemed downright impossible.
The recipes in this book:
are tested and approved by kids
go beyond your basic sunbutter and jelly
provide vital nutrients that kids need to thrive– including protein, healthy fats, and essential minerals like iron and zinc
are free of other common allergens like dairy, eggs, and fish/shellfish
can be adapted for families with compound allergies
will be loved by omnivores and plant-based babes alike
