Help - My Kid is in a nut free class

The school bell rings and you find out your child has been placed in a NUT FREE ZONE and I don't mean nutty kids I mean you have been the recipient of the letter - NO NUTS ALLOWED. This means no peanut butter sandwiches, no trail mix, no cookies with nuts, no peanut butter granola bars, no nuts period. This situation seems to be more and more common as our children journey their way through school.

So, now what do you feed your nut eating kids?
