WHICH SNACK TO GET?
Lately I have been chatting with a lot of mums I know and most, if not all, mention how hard it can be to find good, healthy, dairy free snacks that their kids are actually going to eat.
I totally get that. I would love to provide beautiful, colourful raw and whole food lunches for my kids every day, but that is really hard for me to maintain. I feel that even in the most organised and dedicated of households, it is always a good thing to have some healthy and nutritious snacks in the pantry for your little ones, whether for school, morning or afternoon snacks, or for on the run between activities and social events. The trick seems to be finding products that will taste good, and won’t make there way back home to you by the end of the day or even into the bin!
Just Starting Out
My kids are relatively new to eating dairy free (lactose intolerance and for good health), so I find there taste buds are still adjusting and there are certain things they just will not even try. So I feel fairly confident in recommending these snacks for you if your starting out or just looking for some healthy options.
East Bali Cashews Granola Bites
These are a firm family favourite, even Dad loves them. A yummy tropical vegan snack with cashews, coconut & bananas oven baked into little clusters or “bites”. They are plant based, free from preservatives & dairy. Your whole family will be wanting some of these
Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters Cherry & Almond Butter
This flavour in particular absolutely flies off our shelves and will appeal to parents and kids. Light & crispy coconut flakes mixed with dark chocolate, cherries and almond butter made into little clusters. Organic, vegan, free from dairy & gluten
J. Luehders Soft Candy Lollies
These vegan lollies are an excellent pick for the fussiest of taste buds. Made from 20% real fruit juice, they are fruity and sweet and are completely free from dairy, gelatin, artificial colours and flavours! Our absolute favourite flavour is Red Berries
School Friendly & Lunchbox Ready
Now this is a very popular category. We are always on the hunt for great snacks to go into the lunchbox that don’t contain any nuts (we have a no nut policy at our school). Here are some of our customer’s favourites.
Keto Naturals Crispy Cauli
You might want these all to yourself! You actually get 1 full fresh cauliflower head per packet in these delicious keto crispy snacks with no dairy, nuts, gluten, grains or fake flavours. They come in 3 great yummy flavours but I find my kids love the barbecue bites the best.
Special Occasions & Sweet Treats
Who doesn’t love some chocolate? I find kids, especially mine, will be a bit fussy about dark chocolate so these brands are particularly awesome as they have a similar taste to real milk chocolate without the dairy. Also, with Easter swiftly coming up, now is a great time to check out these special products.
Moo Free Easter Eggs
A wonderful brand that is vegan, tastes like real chocolate but is actually free from dairy, gluten & soya. The egg protectors in the packaging are made from recycled plastic and can be recycled again!

A very popular vegan brand with delicious tasting chocolate that contains no dairy, lactose, wheat or gluten. Made in a factory that never uses dairy or gluten. There is absolutely no need for kids to miss out this Easter!
