As my son gets older and can eat a wider variety of things, it’s becoming more common to have to real Every Bloomin Label on Every Bloomin Thing we buy. It will be nice when I am familiar with some reliable brands that we can trust for processed foods.
Snack foods & cereals seem the hardest. I could not believe how many cereal boxes I had to read through, passing up many organic & natural & fabulous brands, just to find one or two that were nut-contamination-free. Here are Brands I now trust & Zack (my son) loves to eat as well:
Lundberg – In particular their (organic) rice cakes are a great snack, which include some savory flavor options that have been a big hit.
Fiber One – I once thought of this as an old person’s cereal but now that we’ve tried it I have to say both my son and myself love this as a breakfast or snack! The flavor seems so nutty and rich to me & it’s totally safe.
Dum Dums – Not that any of us every feed our kids candy 🙂 but in case of emergencies this is a perfect item to have on hand. Unlike 99% of candy which has unavoidable cross-contamination, Dum-Dum lollipops are made on dedicated-nut-free equipment! Rock on!
I’d love to hear of any other trustworthy & yummy brands out there!
