Lunch Made Easy: BUNCHES of {Nut Free, Gluten Free, & Allergy Friendly} Lunches!

The school year has kicked off with a bang! It's been busy between work, travel, all the homework, and tests that have already begun.

All our lunches are *always* Nut Free (my daughter is allergic). They're also Gluten Free & often Top 8 Allergen Free. So, if you're looking for ideas if your child is in a peanut free classroom or you're new to food allergies, you've come to the right place. Welcome!

What have we been packing? Let's check it out!

One of Little Miss' favorites!
Udi's Gluten, Nut, Soy, & Dairy Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread,
Filled with SunButter and Banana Slices.
Sides include organic carrot sticks, grapes, and pears.
Lunc is packed in an EasyLunchboxes container.
