These days it seems like the unhealthy snacks are front-and-center in the supermarket. The shelves are lined with sugar-laden, preservative-filled food wannabes. They use artificial ingredients to alter color and taste. It’s all so hard to trust, but when it comes to our kids we have to make smart choices. When it comes to snack time, opt for one of these awesome organic snacks.
These chips are made from black or pinto beans and provide a satisfying snack. They also have twice the protein of typical chips. No corn, wheat or GMOs.
Organic and non-GMO, Quinn popcorn comes in a chemical-free bag (so you don’t have to worry about microwaving it). The butter flavor is real and doesn’t use any preservatives. The sea salt flavor is the best!
Unlike most peanut butters, this one is filled without the extra sugar and hydrogenated oils. It also adds cinnamon, which is an interesting flavor combination. It’s great on crackers and celery.
This is one of the cleanest forms of energy you can give your child with plenty of protein and healthy carbohydrates for active play time. It’s sweetened with just a bit of organic agave. It’s also safe for those who can’t eat gluten.
Every kid loves ice cream but they’re often filled with high fructose corn syrup. These Yasso bars are made with Greek yogurt, hormone-free milk, and very little natural sugar. They make a perfect afterschool summer snack!
Most processed meats are full of synthetic ingredients, like nitrates, but not this one. This certified-organic snack hasn’t been injected with hormones, antibiotics or modified feed. It’s also an easy snack to hand out to little kids because it’s not messy.
Remember fruit roll-ups? This organic version of that favorite kids’ snack doesn’t include any of the hydrogenated oils, concentrated fruit juice or high fructose corn syrup. It contains fruit. Yep, that’s it.
8. GoGo squeeZ
This is the perfect on-the-go snack. It’s applesauce without ratification flavors, sugars, or preservatives. Also, the package is made safe to drink from.
You can never go wrong with trail mix. It’s packed full of energy-boosting ingredients and easy to serve to kids. This organic trail mix is more than nuts – it also has fruit.
Kids love pretzels, but who wants the refined white flour and all that salt? These honey wheat pretzels have an interesting sweet flavor.
Written by Christine Barlow, Inventor of 5 Phases Eco-Friendly Baby Bottle System
Mom Christine Barlow is the inventor of 5 Phases eco-friendly and non-toxic baby bottles, the safest and healthiest way to bottle feed your baby. Her inspiration in creating an alternative to traditional feeding bottles came after the birth of her 1lb 7oz micro-preemie baby. Having a compromised child, she became aware how environmental factors were affecting our children. With all the concerns of plastics and infants being the most vulnerable, she felt there was a need for more options for parents who wanted to use glass. She knew she had to act – and the 5 Phases Hybrid Glass Baby Bottles were born.
5 Phases is dedicated to helping families achieve a healthier and organic lifestyle. Starting with baby, they develop products keeping both the environment and health of your family in mind. And when it comes to your baby nothing else will do – Christine knows, she’s a mom too!
