Plus, it's free of the top eight food allergens, including peanuts, tree nuts, soy, dairy, eggs, wheat, fish, and shellfish.
"With 70 percent of K12 schools having policies about restricting or even prohibiting peanuts on campus, SunButter is an ideal school-safe protein to pack in any kid's lunch," said Justin LaGosh, director of sales and marketing at SunButter. "SunButter features a delicious roasted sunflower seed taste that will keep the kids satisfied and the parents pleased, providing a new twist on a traditional PB&J lunch or weeknight meal."
