Our small elem has a snack bar that is open at recess. . . they are trying to sell healthy-ish snacks. Because of the allergy aware policy to limit nuts/peanuts, there are concerns there are not many protein rich foods there.

They do already sell: yogurt, milk, turkey pepperoni sticks, string cheese, bagels/cream cheese, packs of crackers with can of tuna. This week there was a group from UBC dietetics trying to make recommendations, and the principal asked me if I knew of anything that would be suitable.

It has to be stuff readily available at Loblaws/Superstore, Costco, etc and not too expensive. May contains for nut/peanuts are OK. Any ideas? Any experience with soy nuts?

I buy packaged soy nuts from Safeway all the time but they are not in small individual packages. They come in three flavors plain, bbq, and sea salt. (love the sea salt) the company is Aliments VegNat Foods Inc. www.vegnatfoods.com Made in Canada, Quebec.

Sunlower seeds (Spitz brand are peanut and tree nuts free).
Hummus, Burritos, Quesadillas or soy cream cheese?

Thanks! I'll suggest soy nuts, and maybe the sunflower seeds, although I wonder if there are shelled ones? It might be a concern to have the shells all over the school grounds. I'll also just take a browse through superstore and see what's there. They have a fridge, but no microwave, so foods that would need to be heated up are out.

Hi, we buy the salted/shelled SPITZ sunflower seeds at Shoppers Drug Mart and Loeb (now Metro) as well as Sobey's (same company as IGA). They are marked peanut/tree nut free and come in 100g bags, perfect for a concession.

We also buy plantain chips. Our son loves them!
Golden Plantation ‘Plantain Snack’ (Dried plantain slices)
Marked peanut/tree nut free facility 85g bag (bought at Sobey’s)
1-800-70-MANGO (Quebec)

I can't remember the brand but there are snack size bags of dried apple chips also at Sobey's. I bought them once but our son didn't like them. They also are peanut/tree nut free.


I haven't eaten these but I saw someone post them a while back.

Thanks - I'll check for the shelled sunflower seeds.

Re the AllerEnergy bars, these look great, but very expensive, and not available locally. I haven't tried the bars, as we buy No Nuttin ones that we are very happy with, but I have ordered their marshmallows, which are awesome. Their shipping to Canada is min $20, unfortunately, so I have shipped them to my aunt in SF to have her bring them out when she comes to visit.

Small boxes of Kashi Go Lean cereal? It's surprisingly high in protein. Errr, do they make small boxes of it, though?
Cottage cheese is high, high, high in protein!

Thanks - I'll check out the Kashi cereal and bars.

Re soy milk - is it higher in protein than regular milk? They already have regular dairy items, but I could consider if protein is higher. I'll check that out. Thanks.

We just got back from Costco and found SUPER cookies, clearly marked with the peanut free symbol (and omega3). They are in the bakery section packaged in a box with a clear top. Inside there are 16 individual packages with 2 cookies in each. Raspberry Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal. There was another box also by the same company it was all white chocolate /maple. 4. The cookies are soft and really tasty. I have seen them in the vending machines at Ottawa U. but never knew where they could be purchased.
16 (double packages) for 8.48


Each cookie has 3 grams of protein plus omega 3 and omega 6.
