Recently a New Food Staple, a soy food was developed with the specific purpose to replace peanut butter in peanut free and/or aware schools. Because it was developed as a peanut butter replacement it resembles the product in taste, smell, texture and colour. The product is called Wowbutter and it is solving the nutritional needs of thousands of school kids that depended on Peanut Butter in their lunch.

Parents can identify Wowbutter as a peanut butter replacement by following the School Safe Procedure at .

There are scools and/or Boards of Education that ban healthy food that is an alternate spread and resembles peanut butter as well as Wowbutter. It puts a lot of pressure on families and maybe one of the reason so many peanut products are still showing up in lunches.

Schools and Boards banning Wowbutter have not got all the facts about it's safety and use. It is wrong for one person that calls himself/herself chief health and safety officer to deny thousands of kids a healthy food. It is also wrong for principals to punish kids of responsible parents sending safe food to school. They should not be isolated, sent to the office or have their lunch confiscated if they have followed the Safe 4 School Procedure.

Please visit and read about this Ontario Grown and Produced Healthy New Soy Food made from Non GMO Soy Beans and proudly wearing a Foodland Logo. It increases anaphylaxis awareness, is easily implemented into peanut free policies, strengthens existing peanut policies, reduces the risk of anaphylaxis, reduces parent-school conflicts, improves school lunch nutrition, reduces bullying and isolation, improves school morale and reduces school liability in schools where it is welcome.
