Crackers and Pretzels

For snacks that -- sort of -- have the taste appeal of potato chips, Mary’s Gone Crackers offers crunchy, flavorful possibilities. The organic baked crackers, with the company’s name, and its Sticks & Twigs are gluten-free. They are made from brown rice, quinoa, flax, and sesame seeds, not rice or corn. Several Sticks & Twigs products contain more than 550 mg. of omega-3s per serving.

Kracker Enterprises makes its savory, and slightly sweet, flatbreads and crackers from organic whole grains, such as wheat and spelt, and seeds. They are good sources of fiber, protein, omega 3s, vitamins, and iron. Flavors include Pumpkin Cheddar and Sunflower Cheddar. If your child finds the cracker too plain, spread peanut butter or hummus on it.

Newman’s Own Organic makes a line of pretzels for kids with special dietary needs. Newman’s high-protein pretzel has five grams of protein per serving.
