It’s almost back to school time here in our house. Back to packing lunches and snacks for school, and evening practices and lessons for my oldest. All this means it’s time to get some fresh ideas for healthy vegan snacks for kids. My kids are always starving when I pick them up from school. They’re asking for snacks before they step off the bus.
If my kids had a choice they would probably snack all day rather than sit down for a meal, so I’d like those snacks to be healthy and nutritious while also being kid friendly and delicious.
This collection of healthy vegan snacks for kids is a collection for all your mom needs whether that’s ideas to put in their lunchboxes, as an extra morning or afternoon snack at school, those hangry times as soon as they get off the bus, or something to bring along with you while you’re on carpool duty. I’ve even got some healthy snacks that are great to bring when you’re on snack duty for the soccer game.
But these snacks aren’t just for kids! They’re for mom too. Super delicious and satisfying snacks the entire family is going to love.
From chips and dips, bites and balls, cookies and bars, sandwiches and muffins, I’ve got you covered with recipe ideas from some of the best food bloggers around!
Chips and Dips
These chips and dips are just the thing to hold you and the kids over until dinner time without spoiling your appetite and still fueling your body with healthy nutrients.
What kid doesn’t love tater tots? This collection of delicious savory bites are delish for a yummy filling snack when you need a little something to hold you over until the next meal. These snacks are big on flavor without being too overwhelming for kids, and still being extremely satisfying for mom.
Energy bites and energy balls are perfect to pop in a lunch box, or container for snack time at school. They’re small nutrient dense bites that taste like a treat but deliver on protein. My kids are crazy for energy bites and love to make them with me, so get your kids involved in making some of these. They’re quick and easy with a few simple ingredients. My kids love rolling the balls!
Healthy Cookies and Homemade Granola Bars
I’ve never had one of my kids pass up a cookie or granola bar. When they’re in the mood to snack their first ask is always a cookie or bar. With these healthy cookies and homemade granola bars you can feel good about saying yes to a cookie or two! Maybe even one for mom too!
Healthy Sweet Treats
My kids are always asking for treats. It seems like every kid on the planet is obsessed with sugar. While I try my best to keep sugar at bay, these sweet treats are actually healthy and don’t contain as much sugar as the packaged snacks you get in the store. Cookie dough, crunch bars, pudding, oh my! Healthy and indulgent, does it get better than that? You’ll be mom of the year!
Perfect for School Lunches
I will admit that one of my least favorite things to do is pack lunches. There are times when I lack creativity and my son tells me he’s tired of almond butter and jam sandwiches. These snacks not only make great after school snacks, but they’re also perfect for packed lunches, and your kid is going to be pumped when they open their lunchbox and see these tasty new additions.
When I’m driving the kids around town to their practices and lessons they need a little something to hold them over and keep up their energy. But I also want a snack that’s easy to pack and isn’t going to make a huge mess. My youngest is really good at getting food all over his face and hands. These snacks are healthy, easy to pack, and mess free!
