Hi Cynthia et al, I enjoy preparing meals for my family out of Feeding the Whole Family and look forward to Feeding the Young Athlete. Does the new book have many nut-free recipes? We don't have nut allergies in my family, but a classmate of my daughter does, so she can't bring lunches/snacks to school that have nuts. Since we don't eat meat (except fish) or dairy, that makes it tough to come up with filling, nutritious snacks/lunches. She's in Pre-K now, but I suspect we will continue to encounter this issue.

Hi Faith! Yes there are many recipes in the book that are nut free. I'm aware of the prevalence of nut allergies among school age children. It is difficult to maneuver.

How long can you store these? Would you keep them in the fridge? Can't wait to try them.

Hi Sam. Good question. They have never lasted long enough in my home to worry about storage! But they should keep nicely for a week in the refrigerator.

Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas? 'Cause there's nothing like a little Zoom Zoom in your stocking.

Hi Cynthia! Love love, love the zoom-zoom bars! Do you happen to know how many Weight Watchers 'points plus' points are in one bar? Many thanks!

Would maple syrup work as a substitute for brown rice syrup?

Hi Anne, Maple syrup will work but will not harden when it cools like brown rice syrup and barley malt do, so the texture of the bar will be very soft.
