Quick and healthy dairy-free snack ideas

Here is a list of some balanced snacks that are healthy and dairy-free (with a protein and a produce and sometimes a whole grain):

- 1/4 c almonds with a fruit smoothie and toast, if desired
- Chicken salad with Triscuits and veggie sticks
- Apple slices dipped in peanut butter
- Kashi Bar (granola...check for dairy!!!) with grapes
- Deli-meat roll-up, veggies dipped in hummus, and fruit
- 1/4 c walnuts with apples and celery (or make a Waldorf salad)
- Fruit smoothie with a scoop of dairy-free protein powder added
- 1/4 cup cashews with 3 c popcorn and grapes
- Hummus and Triscuits, 1/4 c nuts, fresh fruit
- Beef Jerky with fresh fruit or natural fruit leather

Even though there are dairy allergies, it is still possible to eat a balanced meal:) If you have any more quick snack ideas, feel free to post them here!!!!

Great tips!

Remember to check for milk proteins in the deli meat though. They sometimes have casein or whey.

(I'm actually jealous of your list. We have to avoid peanuts, eggs, and sesame also which rules out most of the list...But I'm definitely going to adapt some of these suggestions!)

That's so hard!!! My son used to also be allergic to eggs, however, he outgrew it by first grade. Good luck!!!

Milk proteins are indeed very helpful to the body. It is a must in daily diet. Thank you so much for sharing such a nice information.
