    Default Nut allergy advice

    Just after some advice. DD has no nut allergies and we are vegan, so nuts feature largely in our diet. I make sure she only eats nuts after school and after extra curricular activities.

    Anyway, I am looking at finding alternatives for nut butters in my recipes so she can take them to school. Suggestions?

    Is tahini ok?

    Free nut butter is made from sunflower seeds and looks and tastes a bit similar to peanut butter. That might be an issue in itself though because the school might think its peanut butter. Sesame is also a highly allergenic food so I'm not sure about tahini. Depends on the school rules and the kids in the class I guess. My DS has peanut and pine but allergy but is not shook age so I'm not up on all that yet.

    Yes, I mean as a peanut butter type substitute.

    Where would I find sunflower butter?

    I've made something with tahini, so I'll have to change it for next time.

    We eat the free nut butter (sunflower) in our house too. We get ours at woolies in the same isle as all of the gluten free products.

    That's why I have a TMX ana, we truly couldn't afford one at the time but got it on interest free, I don't buy anything pre made, make it myself and I know it's not 'accidentally' been contaminated with something, no additives or sugar...all controlled by me.
