I’m looking for some foods that will act similar to peanut butter. My daughter has T1D and is switching schools and, despite advertising that they are “nut aware,” they are operating as “nut free.”
My daughter always has a peanut butter sandwich or peanut butter with apples before heading into high energy activities, such as gym class. I’m having trouble finding a new go-to food that is nut free and will act like peanut butter. They eat lunch at 11:30, have recess and most specials including gym in the afternoon, and there’s not afternoon snack before dismissal at 3. In addition, the morning school-provided snacks are incredibly high-sugar, high-carb, so there isn’t much to build on by lunchtime. I try packing snacks, but she wants to eat what her friends are eating.
I’ve tried packing cheese sandwiches, but she’s going low after gym just a couple hours later. She’s not an adventurous eater, but not too picky either. Any peanut-butter-profile suggestions would be appreciated!
