I’m not ready for summer to be over just yet! But regardless of how I feel it, school is finally here.
To help you with your school lunch and snack planning for school, I’ve gathered up over 35 gluten free dairy free snack recipes for school!
This recipe roundup of allergy friendly snacks for school have a good mix of sweet and indulgent snacks, as well as healthy and savory snacks. So there’s something for everyone!
Every recipe in this roundup is gluten free, dairy free, and nut free (excluding coconut), and most (if not all) of them are also soy free. My nut free labels on these recipes do not include coconut since coconuts are not true nuts.
