Dairy-Free Snacks for the Road

We often get asked about dairy-free toddler snacks by milk allergy moms struggling to transition their child from nursing or the bottle to solid foods.  It's a very valid question as I remember wondering what to feed Miles at age one, too!

Here is our latest snack bag that I keep in the car:

Ritz or Townhouse Crackers
Teddy Grahams
Dried Peas
Apple Pies
Apple Sauce
Kashi Bars

I also keep plastic utensils, plates, and bowls in our little bag so I can easily make up Sunbutter crackers at a park or wherever.  

Having a ready-to-go snack bag has worked wonderfully this summer.  It's great for when we decide to stay out on the town longer than expected.

The key to being an allergy parent is being prepared.  Being prepared with epinephrine and Benedryl is key, but I've also learned being prepared with food is very helpful as well! Wouldn't you agree?

I am REALLY loving this article. It needs to be starred and pinned or something.

I wanted to add a few packaged snacks for moms of toddlers (all Plum Organic brand, available at Target in the baby section).. Little Cremes, they have both rice milk and coconut milk flavors, Teensy Fruits, a type of small "fruit snack", and Jammy Sammys, these can be messy! (Jammy Sammys are made in a facility that also processes milk and some varieties contain nuts, so just be aware!)
