Truly Healthy Snack Alternatives

March 26, 2016

There was an article recently on Dr Frank Lipman’s website about harmful ingredients lurking in what may seem like healthy kids snacks. 

 

I thought I’d give some recommendations on what products I’ve found to be healthier versions of these particular snacks:

 

 

Crackers:  Replace the terrible processed Goldfish snack with Mary’s Gone Crackers

 

Yogurt:  We don’t eat yogurt regularly, but when we do, I like Wallaby Organic Plain Yogurt (I then I can add raw honey and blueberries).

 

Cereals:  Ezekiel cereals are packed with wonderful ingredients.  Pricey, but you get what you pay for.  They can also be a little plain tasting, so fruit on top is nice.  I always fill half of my daughter’s bowl with Ezekiel Cereal if it’s ‘cereal day’ in our house and then the rest for a Whole Foods Brand simple cereal (such as Organic Morning O’s)...and usually some flax/hemp or chia seed and berries.  (Organic) Puffed Kamut, Puffed Millet, Puffed Rice are also nice simple cereals without extra ingredients.

 

Applesauce:  Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods both have great Organic Unsweetened Applesauce with just Organic Apples as an ingredient. I’ll never understand why you need to sweeten applesauce - yuk!


Fruit Snacks:  Plain organic dried fruit is a much healthier option than the processed fruit snacks marketed towards kids.  Just make sure the dried fruit you choose doesn’t have added juice or sweetener.
