Back-to-school season is here and it can be a struggle to get the young ones excited about healthier snacks especially after a long day of school. While homemade snacks for kids are always preferable, it isn’t always possible thanks to a time crunch.
To help you out, we’ve rounded up 10 vegan-friendly pre-packaged snacks that we are sure you and your family will absolutely enjoy.
Blueberry Muffin by NAKD
Have you looked at the back of your cereal bar wrapper to see what’s in it? If you’re in luck, you may see a few ingredients you recognize, but everything else might sound foreign. Nakd likes to keep things simple. All the ingredients in their bars are raw and natural as the brand does not believe in using additives or sugary syrups.
The Blueberry Muffin is the most reviewed bar amongst abillion’s members. In their review, @jaelwestrus says: “I LOVE these! It actually tastes like blueberry muffin and it’s healthy too. Great snack and even good for people who ‘don’t like healthy stuff’ because it tastes just like a cookie bar.”

Mickey Mouse Shaped Chik’N Nuggets by Incogmeato

Crispy Chick’n Sliders by Gardein
Sliders are always a safe choice. These morsels by Gardein are small, filling and incredibly easy to prepare. Warm them up in the microwave oven, dress them however you like and your tasty snack will be ready to be served in no time.
Vegan dad @vgn81 says: “When cooked correctly, these taste great. We tend to be in a hurry so microwave the buns for 10- 14 seconds and the patty for about 30-40 seconds. My youngest daughter who is 3 years old likes these a lot and she's a really picky vegan kid. So her liking these is a big win for us.”
