When Baby Budget was about 1o months old we discovered that she had issues with dairy. We immediately switched her to a dairy free formula and she now maintains a dairy free diet. When she was only drinking a bottle or just starting to eat food it was pretty easy to find things for her to eat. Now that she’s eating meals with us and wanting her own snacks I’ve found it more difficult to find things. I know that you can run down the snack aisle at the grocery store and pick up a million things that don’t have dairy, but most of those things aren’t items I would feed to a child. So, I’ve compiled a small list of dairy free snacks for babies and toddlers!
Peanut Butter Toast
Dairy Free Yogurt
French Fries/Tater Tots
Avocado on Toast or Tortillas
Banana Bread Muffins (This recipe is amazing!)
Fig Bars (We buy Nature’s Bakery)
When we are home we tend to focus on fruits and vegetables for snacks, especially during the summer because we are able to pick fresh from the garden. However, life happens and when we are in a hurry or even on the road it’s sometimes easier to toss some graham crackers in a bag. I’ve had a hard time finding new snack ideas or even meal ideas that are dairy free, but I have found that when searching it’s easier to find vegan recipes which are dairy free, than it is to just search for dairy free recipes! If you have any additional snack ideas feel free to let me know!
