Valentine’s Day parties at school are a fun way for kids to celebrate love and friendship, and all the tasty treats are a bonus. But did you know that 1 in 13 children suffer from food allergies? That means for roughly 2 students in each classroom, class party treats are not an option. We rounded up three of our favorite allergy-friendly snacks that will have your little valentines asking for seconds.
Cupid Crunch Trail Mix
This sweet and salty combo from Simply Kierste Design will be tasty enough for kids and adults alike. Toss together gluten-free pretzels, marshmallows, and the chocolate treat of your choice. Package the Cupid Crunch Trail Mix in treat bags and voila! You have the perfect snack for school parties.
Heart-Shaped Rice Treats
We love a kid-friendly recipe, and heart-shaped rice treats are just that. Make this classic treat dairy free by swapping out the butter for coconut oil or margarine, and be sure to use gluten-free rice cereal. Once the treats set, cut out the treats using a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Check out all the fun ways Milk Allergy Mom decorates her rice treats.
Chocolate and Berry Kabobs
These easy Chocolate and Berry Kabobs are gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and peanut-free, making them a safe and delicious choice for school parties. The best part? No baking required!
