Whether in a rush, traveling or simply trying to get that toddler out of the house… Packaged snacks are a convenience and sometimes a necessity. Without compromising the organic living standards, I have put together a list of what is in my pantry.
Yes, yes, we all try to eat a clean, organic and ‘whole’ diet, but sometimes processed foods are a convenience we say “yes” to. On the run… at a party or barbecue as an alternative to the corn-syrup-filled junk… traveling, ordering out, or simply trying to get through the day, packaged snacks are a welcomed alternative.
Certified Organic.. Non perishable.. No junky ingredients… No additives, preservatives or natural flavors…
Chips & Pretzels
OK.. These are not really chips, but for the longest time, my kids thought dehydrated apples were actual ‘chips’. These have a fantastic, truly ‘crunchy’ texture and can pass for chips. Fuji and reds have a hint of ‘sweet’ but not overpowering. Banana chips are also a popular choice.
A favorite in our house. Crunchy, taste good and are so easy to pack in anything and take with you. These are also available as a “cracker”. My kids cannot get enough.
Going to a party where they will serve chips? No problem! Bring Late July’s to share and convert the corn-syrup lovers with this tasty alternative.
These are very good and are a favorite. Awesome with your favorite salsa (in a glass jar).
As I am learning with time, we make lifestyle changes. The latest becoming gluten-free. But when we were not, we always had these Unique pretzels on hand. These are amazing. Amazing! Quite possibly the best tasting pretzel I have ever had. And they are made with sprouted wheat flower – much easier on your belly.
Organic Popcorn, coconut oil and Himalayan salt. Simple and tasty.
A favorite in our house. My youngest is the biggest fan. Chewy, leathery goodness. Our favorite is Berry Apple/Spinach (check out the ingredients).
The standard for a shack bar. My wish for every child that eats a processed “snack bar” is for that child to eat Oskri. Minimal ingredients and the taste is fantastic. Apple version only has two ingredients! Apricot and cherry versions only there!
Made with organic bananas and organic coconuts only. Kids enjoy them and parents are happy for a healthy snack.
This one is my go-to. Has just the right amount of ‘sweet’ ans sour. Filling and satisfying. Out of the Go Raw collection, the apricot version is my kids favorite too, although Raisin Crunch is also a popular choice.
Great option when craving something chocolaty.
A very tasty snack bar. The cranberry version is my favorite, and my children prefer the dark chocolate.
A good, filling and tasty snack bar, although we do not consume often due to brown rice syrup being a first ingredient.
A great alternative to a conventional fruit snack. We love the Mango version. Only one ingredient. Little hands will be sticky after eating these but kids do love the fun of peeling the snack and eating it…
Good flavor, filling and satisfying.
No artificial OR natural flavors; no unnecessary additives… These taste good due to what they are made with, not additives. Our go-to when craving a conventional granola bar.
Freeze Dried Snacks and Dehydrated Fruit
Double entry for these.. Our favorite are the Fiji and Reds apple chips, but banana chips are also in demand at this house.
Simple… Organic freeze dried blueberries. Nattiera has so many options for natural snacks – apples, beets, green peas, pineapples, raspberries and others. And for the adventure seekers, chocolate mangos or chocolate bananas.
A superb organic alternative to rice puffs or rice crispies… Two ingredients. Organic Mangos, Organic strawberries. That is it! Check out the other flavors too – Apple/Banana, Apple/Mango, Blueberry/Banana or go wild with the Variety Pack.
Not freeze dried, so they are pleasantly chewy. Only one ingredient. We love Terrasoul’s sun-dried apricots too. Both are big hits in this house.
Dehydrated apples. One ingredient.. Very pleasant ‘not too sweet’ taste. Individually packed for easy transport.
These are so good… If you ever crave those peppermint patties you had as a kid, this will bring lots of pepperminty memories. Only 3 organic ingredients!
These hit the spot every time. Guilt free. These are fantastic! Once you try Ocho, you’ll want to re-stock monthly. I wish there was a ‘subscribe and save’ option for these, that is how good they are.
Love them Reese’s peanut butter cups? No problem? Justin’s got you covered.
Craving chocolate? This is the bar of my choosing. They have a variety of flavors, from dark chocolate, to milk to white… Basic ingredients, nothing extra and excellent taste.
