Allergy Friendly Snacks for Kids

“Mom, I am hungry!” This is a statement moms hear at least five times a day.

Months ago I had a nice stash of goldfish, animal crackers, cheese sticks, etc. (in addition to fresh items) to grab from for these moments. Since learning of my son’s allergies it has been hard to find a variety of snack options for him. Over the past few months we have found snacks that work with his diet and palate—so, thought I would share!

  1. My kids don’t have allergies, but these are already some of our favorite snacks. Hummus and carrot sticks and homemade fruit leathers. YUM!

  2. Since when can he have hummus? That’s wonderful! Are you making it from scratch or did you find a sesame seed free one?

    • Oops, how did I miss this comment? I have bought a tahini free one at Trader Joe’s and also I make it from scratch in the Vita-mix.
