I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

Fun Snack-- Dairy-Free Banana Boats

Here's a recipe for a really fun snack.  We used to make these at the Girl Scout camp that I worked at years ago.  They are originally made to put on a campfire, but you can get the same taste from the oven.  They are so oooey and gooey and yummy.  I can't imagine any kid not liking them (unless they don't like bananas).
Banana Boats (see photos here)
(You can make one or a half a dozen at a time.  Prep time is about 5 minutes and baking is about 5 to 10 minutes)

mini marshmallows
Enjoy Life Chocolate chips
Aluminum foil

1. Carefully slit open each banana the long way with a sharp knife.  Be careful not to cut all the way through.
2. Gently stuff the  as many chocolate chips and marshmallow under the peal of the banana.  It's okay if it doesn't close.
3. Wrap each banana in foil.  No need to wrap really tight. I placed ours on a baking sheet so it is easy to put in and take out of the oven.
4. Place in 350 degree oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until marshmallows and chocolate chips are melted.
5. Let cool for a minute or two before diving into the tasty snack.


  1. I love these! I usually put peanut butter in mine, but I'm sure it would be great with a different kind of butter for peanut allergies.
