Super Snacks! 8 Healthy Store-Bought Snacks for Kids
By: Kate Stahl
Healthy snacks can be hard to find, and your kids are probably sick of the two or three you’ve been stocking for the last few years. But you don’t have to find time to bake your own granola or make your own yogurt to mix things up. We’ve found eight new, healthy snacks that you can feel good about packing in lunch boxes or serving up after school. The best part? Your kids will never even suspect that they’re loaded with healthy extras like whole grains, vitamins, and even hidden broccoli!
Sprout Smash Snacks
We love Sprout’s baby foods, so we’re excited that the brand just introduced a line of snacks for school-age kids. The new organic Smash snacks ($11 for a five-pack) include vegetable and fruit flavors, Greek yogurt flavors, and quinoa, coconut, and fruit flavors. Add in some cute packaging, and we’re sold!
Snikiddy Grilled Cheese Puffs
Kids love cheese snacks, and Snikiddy Cheese Puffs ($26 for bag of 12), available in grilled cheese or mac ‘n’ cheese flavors, are free from preservatives and additives, while still leaving plenty of cheesy goodness behind on tiny fingers. Also check out the brand’s new baked fries, available in seven flavors like classic ketchup and cheddar cheese.
Funley’s Super Crackers
Funley’s Super Crackers ($4) come in fun flavors like Pizza N’ Stuff and Cheddar N’ Stuff, each of which features a hidden superfood like carrots, broccoli, or sweet potatoes and includes vitamin D, calcium, and iron. Each pack has 100 calories or fewer.
Annie’s Organic Graham Crackers
Introduced this Spring, Annie’s Organic Graham Crackers ($11 for four) are available in honey or cinnamon flavors, both of which include no artificial flavors, synthetic colors, or synthetic preservatives but do boast eight grams of whole grains per serving.
Kids’ yogurt Chobani Champions just introduced three new products, all of which are made with only natural ingredients and real fruit and offer a good source of vitamin D and protein. Flyin’ Dragon Fruit Greek Yogurt Tubes ($3 for eight-pack) are a great grab-and-go treat, while two popular tube flavors, blueberry and strawberry, are now available in larger, 3.5-ounce cups ($3 for four-pack).
Plum Kids Yo’ Drops Crunchable Yogurt
Who says yogurt has to be smooth and cold? Plum Kids’ Organic Yo’ Drops ($4 for five-pack) are freeze-dried crunchable drops made with organic yogurt and real fruit in portable packs. With no artificial flavors, trans fats, or high fructose corn syrup, moms should feel good about adding this novelty (available in three flavors) to lunch boxes.
