Having snacks in the house during the summer is a necessity with kids around. It’s not necessarily a must, but having new snacks can really be a game changer. Getting kids excited about eating, especially when the food they’re eating is good for them, is super important. If they think the food they are going to eat is fun and cool, they are more likely to eat it; and be willing to try it.
I am a huge advocate for healthy snacks, so when I come across some, I love to share them with others. Many of these snacks I would purchase again to have in our home.
The snacks that Without a Trace Foods makes are all free of the top 8 allergens. Available are cookies, granola bars, and power bites. For someone who has allergies, these snacks are the perfect option. No one in our family has any food allergies, but we have eaten all the snacks we were given. My kids especially love the power bites, and honestly I do too. These bites have a lot of flavor to them and are the perfect snack to bring on the go. We like the granola bars too. They are a bit chewy and really get stuck in teeth, but the taste is good. We tasted the cookies and were not super impressed with them. Again, we don’t have any food allergies, so we are not in need of allergen free chocolate chip cookies. We are kind of chocolate chip cookie snobs. I would imagine though, if we did have food allergies in our family, these would be such a great option.

Organic pasta box meals are such a perfect way to do dinner during the summer. Free of the top 14 allergens, this pasta is seriously so impressive. Our whole family ate these pasta boxes and didn’t think they tasted any different than a normal pasta meal. The flavor of them was incredible. These pasta boxes are super easy to make and take less than 30 minutes. There are 4 different varieties available which include taco, creamy garlic, savory Italian, and porcini mushroom. We were able to try the creamy garlic pasta and the savory Italian pasta. Both are very good, but my husband and I like the creamy garlic pasta the most. We were astonished by the flavor that was packed inside the box. The savory Italian pasta is good too, it’s similar to spaghetti, but ore flavorful. I highly recommend All Clean Food’s pasta dinners.

These yummy snacks are so good. Not only do my kids love them, but we shared them with lots of friends and they all approve of them too. The snacks are made with quinoa that is super crispy and is dipped in chocolate. All the ingredients are all-natural, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Lots of different flavors are available including pomegranate, blueberry, currant, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate. You can purchase the treats individually wrapped or in a re-sealable bag.

These granola bars are great for on the go trips. Something that I actually love about these bars is the colorful packaging of them. Colorful packaging for kids is super helpful because in most cases it get them excited to eat the food. The Kubeba bars are packed with protein. 12-13 grams of protein in one bar is very impressive and almost unheard of in the healthy, allergen-free food family. These bars are such a great option for people who need allergen free snacks. I felt that these granola bars are pretty tough to chew and really get stuck in the teeth. I wouldn’t recommend giving these bars to young children due to choking hazards.

The Eat G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. mixes are Some of the best dessert mixes that I’ve ever made. The name of the brand defines just how free of allergens these mixes are. Take a look what these mixes are free of: grain-free, additive-free, nightshade-free, gluten-free, soy & legume-free, tree-nut & seed-free, egg & dairy-free, and refined sugar-free. My husband and I for sure tell a difference between these desserts and most. We did really both like the Oatmeal Schmoatmeal cookies and thought they were a good option for a dessert. We do have many family members who are vegan and they all approved these desserts. My mother in law, who is vegan and gluten free, was thrilled to be able to eat these desserts.
