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
Bare Baked Crunchy. Buy Apple version here.
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.
MaryGone Crackers Pretzels (Gluten Free). Buy here.
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.

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.

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!

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…
