We all want our little ones to be healthy, but sometimes it’s hard to convince them to gobble up the stuff that’s good for them.
In an ideal world, every refrigerator would be magically full of freshly washed and chopped organic fruits and veggies and our kids would never roll their eyes and ask for chips or crackers instead.
So what’s a mom to do? We’ve put together a list of snacks you can keep on hand that are crunchy, tasty, salty or sweet… but made from wholesome, healthy ingredients instead of processed junk! Love!
Way Better Snacks
Gluten-free tortilla chips, pita chips and crackers made from simple, unprocessed ingredients. Our favorite: Simply Sweet Potato tortilla chips made from sprouted chia seed and quinoa.

These Strawberry Apple and Wildberry Apple strips are made from mixed fruit and veggie purees and juices.
These crunchy alphabet bits, made with all natural, organic ingredients, offer a great source of Omega-3 DHA + EPA, vitamins A, B12, D3 and folic acid.
