My kids participate in several activities outside of school, but the one we spend the most time with, is basketball.
From the fall, all the way until mid-spring, our weekends, and a few weekday evenings, are all about practices, games, and sometimes, double header games.
If you’re familiar with my site, you’ll already know that I make a lot of the snacks I send my kids to their activities and to school with, mostly because of a few food allergies we have to deal with.
But there are also a few packaged snacks I like to buy…because I want them to enjoy a variety of things and store-bought stuff is sometimes more fun than my homemade snacks 🙂
Because of the allergies, when I buy snacks from the store, I have to always pay close attention to ingredient lists. The simpler the list, the better.
One of the store bought snacks we all like is Martin’s Apple Chips. Not only do my kids like the taste, I love the convenience and the healthy ingredient list. I can’t really call it a list because there’s just one ingredient in the plain apple chips (their favourite): APPLES!
The plain and cinnamon apple chips are vegan and all of their flavours (they also make chocolaty drizzle and caramel dream!) are peanut-free and gluten-free (and delicious!).
My kids enjoy these as a quick snack before practices and in between games and I also pack them in school lunches, alongside a delicious and easy vegan yogurt dip (find the recipe for it below!).
I hope that by sharing this list of our favourite easy vegan snacks, it will give you some new ideas to use in your home! All of these vegan snacks are also gluten-free. On to the list of snack ideas for active kids!
Vegan Snacks List
One major thing you need in a snack for kids is that it’s good for on-the-go. It needs to be portable and not have the potential for making a big mess. This is why muffins are another favourite around here and are made on a regular rotation, based on their requests:
- Vegan Gluten Free Morning Glory Muffins
- Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins
- Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Muffins
- Vegan Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins
- Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Muffins
A few other few portable vegan snacks to make include:
- Nut-Free Maple Coconut Granola Clusters
- Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies
- Chocolate Avocado Pudding
- Chocolate Banana Coconut Chia Pudding
- Vegan Granola Bars
In addition to all of the homemade vegan snack ideas above, there is also the easiest of them all: fresh fruit!
Fresh fruit + Martin’s Apple Chips tie into the recipe I’m sharing with you today.
Apple chips pair so well with a variety of dips, one of which is this easy vegan yogurt dip. Not only is it great with apple chips, it also works well with any type of fruit!
