Allergy Free Back to School Snacks

Amande is a new brand of dairy and soy free yogurt made from almond milk.
I know those three little words “back to school” are kind of a buzz-kill but maybe these allergy free treats will be a comfort for those heading back. I like to keep my own backpack “booby trapped” with goodies I can eat so I’m never without!
