Snacks are an inevitable part of life with little ones. Since I can’t make all of ours from scratch, I look for brands that use organic ingredients and ethical business practices. One brand that we like is Newman’s Own Organics.
They have a wide variety of organic snack foods, and a handful that are gluten free (their wheat-free products, however, are not gluten free as they contain barley).
Newman’s Own Organics sent me a package of their snacks that don’t contain gluten to try out. We got a box full of chocolate bar and cups, dried fruit, microwave popcorn, mint tins and oil and vinegar. I love their dark chocolate – yum! The girls love the dried fruits and peanut butter cups.
My favorite is the dark chocolate espresso bar. All of the chocolate bars and cups are Rainforest Alliance Certified, which means that the cocoa in their Signature Series was grown on farms that meet comprehensive standards for sustainable farming, protecting soil, waterways and wildlife habitat as well as the rights and welfare of workers, their families and communities.
And no salad is complete without a quality organic olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I think I’m going to try making a batch of kale chips with these 2 yummy products!
