Healthy Snacks for the Whole Family
Are you searching for dairy-free and sugar-free healthy snacks for your family? Then look no further than this post for some exciting new healthy snacks that everyone can enjoy! They make perfect stocking-stuffers too!
If you have a family member with a dairy or other food allergy, you know how hard it is to find snacks for them to eat, let alone healthy snacks. My husband John is severely allergic to whey protein, which means he cannot have cheese, milk, yogurt, ice cream, or even egg yolk without going into anaphylactic shock. Because these items are all dairy-free, he was even more excited than I was to try out these sensational snacks!

Go Organically Fruit Snacks
Go Organically fruit snacks come in three different flavors and are made with organic ingredients and real fruit juice! These fruit snacks were an instant winner for us. John and I both loved how fresh and flavorful the Go Organically fruit snacks tasted. John’s favorite was the Tropical blend while I loved the Mixed Berry the best. Go Organically fruit snacks are the ideal pick-me-up healthy snack for both kids and parents!
With a cool name like Aqua Ball and pictures of some of our favorite Disney characters, we knew these flavored waters would be a hit. Each Aqua Ball has zero sugar and is sweetened with Stevia for just the right amount of sweetness. Aqua Ball is also a good source of vitamins B2, B5, B6, and C. These bottles are the perfect size for fitting into a kid’s lunch box or your diaper bag. Our favorite was the Strawberry Lemonade flavor!
Gaea Olive Snacks
Marinated in lemon with oregano and chili and black pepper, these olive snacks are a cool twist on a classic snack food! I don’t like green olives, but John absolutely loves them! He had so much fun tasting the different flavors of pitted green olives. The chili and black pepper olive snack was his favorite as he said the chili and black pepper really brought out the flavor of the olives. This unique healthy snack is only sixty-seven calories and is liquid and preservative free!
How awesome are these flavored ginger ales? Super awesome! Brooklyn Organics ginger ale is caffeine free, vegan, and kosher. Their beverages also contain zero sugars and artificial sweeteners. There’s nothing better to wash down a healthy snack with than a cold ginger ale! There are so many refreshing flavors to choose from too! It was so fun to try all the different flavor combinations. These drinks are uniquely flavored, so while I didn’t love the cola flavored ginger ale, I really enjoyed the acai flavored ginger ale! John liked the acai and the classic ginger ales the best.
The Little Kernel
The cutest packaging coupled with the tastiest popcorn equals The Little Kernel mini popcorn snack! The Little Kernel comes in the many unique flavors of Truffle & Sea Salt, Butter, Pink Himalayan Salt, and Sweet & Salty! The fluffy texture and mini popcorn size make this healthy snack easy to eat while you’re relaxing and binge-watching your favorite show. The Truffle and Sea Salt had a distinct mushroom flavor to it and I wasn’t a big fan of that, but I loved the Sweet & Salty kettle corn flavor that was subtly sweet with just the right amount of salt. John enjoyed the butter popcorn so much he ate most of the bag himself!
