Steering your kids away from sugary soft drinks, sodium-packed microwavable meals, and processed fast food—without any tantrums—can be a challenge.
Let’s face it: It’s not easy to make chia seed pudding look as tempting as ice cream—no matter how much their tummies are growling. Luckily, there are plenty of organic, nutritious snack alternatives out there. Try these kid-approved, wallet-friendly (each costs around $3) snacks—without any of the deep-fried or high-fructose corn syrup consequences. Now, getting them to share with each other? That’s a whole other challenge.
1. Barbara’s Bakery Original Cheese Puffs
Made from real, aged cheddar, these baked puffs are a non-GMO, snack everyone will love.
2. Newman’s Own Dried Organic Apples
One hundred percent organic, these sweet and chewy dried apples offer the nutrition of fresh, organic apples, but with the longer shelf life and packaging for on-the-go healthy snacking.
3. Stretch Island All Natural Summer Strawberry Fruit Strips
Perfect for the kid with a sweet tooth, Stretch Island’s all-natural fruit strips get their sugary sweetness entirely from fruit—not added sugar. And with ½ a serving of fruit each, these pocket-sized, on-the-go treats pack a mighty fruit punch!
