The struggle to provide kids with healthy and nutritious lunchbox snacks is a struggle all parents and guardians know. With the ever increasing amount of junk food available in stores, it’s hard to get kids excited in the alternatives which are usually healthy and yummy at the same time. So, let’s try and find some!
1. Luke’s Organic Kale Chips
Chips are a favourite for the lunchbox, but also a high source of sugar and energy that are probably not the best thing to be putting in a child about to step into the classroom! Luke’s Organic Kale Chips offer an alternative that is organic, vegan, non-GMO and kosher to ensure you can still provide a tasty treat without all the junk!
They taste fantastic and that it’s the perfect snack for both kids and adults alike. The problem, however, is that it’s hard to find these snack in-stores and that they often have to be ordered online. Because of this, most people by it in bulk when ordering so that they don’t have to go through the hassle of ordering online as much.
2. Mary’s Black Pepper Crackers
Mary’s Black Pepper Crackers are another option for hungry kids on the run, they are Gluten free as well as vegan friendly and are reportedly extremely addictive! It is rare that you get a healthy, organic snack that tastes as good (if not better) than the usual junk foods we put in the lunchbox.
They are reasonably prices as well and the majority of those that have bought it feel there is a good balance between price and quality, something you don’t always get when it comes to organic and vegan snacks due to the cost of the ingredients that go into ensuring it is of top quality.
Growing kids need every bit of goodness they can get, and it is no secret that getting little ones to eat healthy is indeed a trough task. Getting crucial vitamins, protein and energy every day may seem like a hard ask, but in fact there is a simple snack that can make it quite a simple task.
3. Tosi Superbites
Tosi Superbites are an organic, gluten free and vegan friendly snack made with cashews, almonds, flaxseeds and many other healthy bits and bobs. They provide a strong source of protein, omega-3 and fiber as well as being a very tasty treat.
Most people love them for how easy it is to eat them on the run, be it at the park, in school, or even at home! Everything from taste to smell is appealing and they are perfect for not just the hungry kids, but adults as well.
These treats are a bit more on the expensive side of the organic food side, however, if you don’t mind paying a bit extra (and to be fair, you are paying for top notch quality and a very healthy, organic snack that will provide plenty of energy for the day ahead) then this is probably one the best products you can get your hands on, even more so for vegans looking for a fast and simple meal that tastes amazing and stops cravings during the day!
