Grab ‘n Go Snacks (Dairy and Egg Free!)

“Everyone bring a snack!”

“Let’s have a bring your own lunch picnic!”

“Our classes have snack time.”

My view of food has completely changed since finding out SG is allergic to dairy and eggs. When I hear those phrases above, I know I have to speak up and ask if I can bring snacks for everyone. And for my friends not to bring anything. It is so worth it to have SG included AND safe. And it’s totally awesome when friends volunteer to bring safe snacks to share! My friends ROCK!!!

Here’s a list of safe snacks I’ve compiled. Please share this post and save it for later. You never know when you might make friends like us and need this list. 🙂

If you’re new to food allergies and aren’t quite sure what store bought snacks are dairy and egg free, this is the list for you.

As always, please read every label, every time.  Companies can and do change recipes and ingredients.

This is our “grab and go” safe snack list. It is BRAND SPECIFIC. If you buy the generic Oreos, they may contain milk (I’ve read that some generic Oreos do have milk!)

Enjoy!

Oreos- Regular chocolate and double stuffed chocolate, Golden Oreos (regular and double stuffed)

Kraft and HyVee brand marshmallows

Rold Gold pretzel sticks and twists

Dole Raisins (These are super plump and amazing!)

Florida’s Natural Organic Fruit Snacks, “Fruit Grove Nuggets” and “Berrilicious Nuggets”

GoGo squeeZ Applesauce Pouches

Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars “Oats ‘n Honey”

Simply Balanced Strawberry Fruit Strips

Plain Cheerios

All Enjoy Life products (They are free of the top 8 allergens.)

Original Ritz Crackers

Mott’s Natural Applesauce

Honey Maid Graham Crackers: Chocolate and Honey

Honey Maid Teddy Grahams: Honey, Chocolate, and Chocolate Chip

Pop Tarts: Frosted and Unfrosted Strawberry and Blueberry

Dole Fruits in Plastic Cups: Peaches, Apples, Pears, Mandarin Oranges & Pineapple

Fresh Fruit & Veggies
(Please note: It’s best if a fruit isn’t cut at someone’s house other than the food allergy parent. Cross contamination can occur and make the fruit unsafe. CC can come from a cutting board, knife, colander, the parent touching an allergen then cutting fruit, etc. It’s best to bring a “pre-packaged” fruit or veggie like cuties, bananas, baby carrots in the unopened bag, etc.)

Candy: Smarties, Starburst, Skittles, Dum-Dums, and Starburst Jelly Beans.

We are always looking for more safe snacks.

  1. Here are a few of our favorites that are milk, egg and peanut free… Corn Pops, Girl Scout Thin Mints and Lemonade cookies, Original Wheat Thins, Premium brand bite size saltines (some other brands of saltines contain milk), Snapea Crisps, Mother’s Cupboard Fruit Cereal Bars (at the Hy-Vee in the organic section), & lemon pudding cups (can’t remember what brand but they were not in the cooler section and only lemon flavor).

  2. Girl Scout thin mints do contain dairy products. Our go to snacks that are dairy free only are frito-lay peanut butter crackers, barbecue chips, earth balance snack foods, sprout (toddler section “fruit snacks”) peanuts,cashews, natures path cereals and granola.

    • It depends where your Girl Scout cookies were made. We just moved to North Dakota and the Thin Mints they sell here are vegan. My daughter was so excited!

    • I should mention that the Girl Scout cookies we buy in Iowa are from ABC Bakers and are milk free. Different regions use different bakeries and may contain different ingredients. Some even have entirely different cookies.

  4. thank you for this!!! We learned of our little guy’s allergies last week and are still trying to wrap our heads around It. This article is so helpful. 🙂

    • It’s my pleasure to help. It’s very overwhelming in the beginning but you will learn and get the hang of it. As always, read every label every time to make sure no ingredients have changed. Let me know if you have any questions.
