These allergy friendly after school snacks are healthy snacks for kids that you’ll love, too! All 5 of these after school snacks are nut free, egg free, gluten free, and vegan. Oh, and DELICIOUS!
I secretly wish I could going back to school just so I could have the thrill of after school snacks. Come on, admit it, that was your favorite part about elementary school too, right? You finished your day at 3 pm and ran home to tell your mom about your day. She’d pull out the ding dongs (yes, I’m an 80’s child) and you’d dunk them in your milk and reminisce about the day. Poor mom, she had no idea what she was feeding me but at least she tried, and heck, I’m still alive today. Haha!
Nowadays, things have changed a LOT! Wouldn’t you agree? Good and not so good changes. Unfortunately more kids have food allergies or are sensitive to certain foods, that’s the not the so good.
The GOOD news is that there are TONS more allergy friendly snack options, thanks to brands like Enjoy Life Foods.
You see, coming up with healthy and tasty, kid friendly snacks that are ALSO allergy friendly doesn’t have to be hard. As a matter of fact, when you have a stash of Enjoy Life Foods products on hand, it’s crazy easy! And lucky for you, I just happen to have a bucket of them waiting for you!
All of the allergy friendly after school snacks I’m sharing today are combos and creations made with Enjoy Life Foods products. Thankfully, their products are nut free, egg free, dairy free, gluten free, and vegan! The products I used in today’s recipes are:
- Mountain Mix Trail Mix (nut free, egg free, gluten free, and vegan). This trail mix is also lower in sugar than regular trail mix, making it a great option for mid morning or afternoon snacking! Definitely back to school BRAIN FOOD!
