We're often asked for ideas on healthy, allergen-free snack options that are kid friendly. Here are a couple quick and easy favorites of ours that are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and nut free.
Here's what you'll need on hand to pull off a sweet snack and a savory snack in 5 minutes or less...
Sunbutter Natural Spread
Brown Rice Rice Cakes (we like the lightly salted version)
Honey (or agave syrup can be substituted)
Food For Life Brown Rice Tortilla
Daiya Dairy Free shredded cheese (cheddar style or mozzarella style)
Your favorite sliced deli meat (Applegate Farms is our favorite brand)
This is even one that the kiddos can put together themselves. So quick and easy!
Spread Sunbutter (made with sunflower seeds and tastes great!) on top of a plain rice cake. Drizzle about a tablespoon of honey on top and add sliced bananas. Voila! Super yummy and quick snack that actually has nutritional value!
We start with a rice tortilla (The Food For Life brand is our current favorite), spread a handful of Daiya dairy free cheese in the middle, and add a slice or 2 of your lunch meat of choice. Warm up open-faced in the microwave for about 30 seconds or on the stove top for about 5 minutes on low to medium heat. It's done once cheese is "melty" and the tortilla is soft. Spread a dollop of Vegenaise on top of the meat. Roll it up from one end to the other and you're ready to rockin roll! You can even slice it into smaller rolls and add some grilled veggies to spruce it up if you're feeling adventurous. Yum!
