Allergy Friendly Kid Snacks
There are a host of allergies out there today that so many kids suffer from. Anywhere from the more common peanut, eggs, gluten, seafood/shellfish and dairy allergies to the not so common red meat, raw fruits and vegetables, and certain spices. It’s usually a not so easy adjustment for families to make when they find out their child suffers from food allergies or sensitivities.
At Wacky Apple, we are happy to report that our products are allergy friendly! They are not produced in a factory that handles nuts, nor are they highly processed. Our products also never have added sugar, preservatives, added colors or artificial flavors. We pride ourselves on growing our apples and fruits with the utmost care and 100 percent organic farming practices. We grow and treat our apple trees the way nature intended. This makes our juice, applesauce and flat fruit a perfect, nutritious option for kids with allergies or sensitivities.
Although, we love just eating our applesauce and flat fruit as is, here are a few ways to create some super duper treats for your loved ones with allergies and sensitivities…or anyone for that matter!
- Wacky Apple Popsicles or Slushies: poke a Popsicle stick in the top of your Wacky Apple juice foil wrapper and carefully set it in your freezer. Your juice will turn into a homemade Popsicle in a few hours. Once frozen, remove the foil lid and jiggle the Popsicle out of the plastic cup and enjoy!
- Applesauce and Oatmeal: make your oatmeal as directed and top with a few scoops of applesauce to make an instant apple oatmeal. For extra nutrition sprinkle on chia, flax or hemp seeds.
- Wacky Apple applesauce smoothies or parfaits (look under our recipe section)
- Applesauce cookies (look under our recipes section)
- For an extra WACKY treat, dip your flat fruit in your applesauce!
The Wacky Apple team loves sharing our treats too! We recently boxed up some Wacky Apple applesauce and flat fruit to a special little boy who suffers way more then with just a food allergy. This boy has a rare disease where his body rejects any food. This month was his chance to try apples. It was “apple month” for him so we packed up the best applesauce around and sent it his way. We sure are rooting for him and his family.
