vegan snacks for kids

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!

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!

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.
