I am running out of interesting and healthy ideas for snacks on the go for my 2.5 year old DD. Trail mix, rice cakes, fruit leathers, and portable fresh fruit are in the regular rotation, but I would love some new and different suggestions.
Also, is there some great website that has lists of things like that, or other allergy and kid friendly recipes that I can try? We are new the the allergy world and I would love to be directed to some good sources instead of spending more hours with google and getting nowhere.

Rice crackers, oat cookies, dried figs, edamame dip (seriously delicious but expensive unless you make it yourself), popcorn seasoned with salt, coconut oil, and nutritional yeast (my whole family LOVES this), homemade coconut/chocolate treats. I melt dark chocolate in a broiler and add coconut oil and coconut cream, plus vanilla and a little sweetener and freeze into tiny paper cups. Truffles! Coconut yogurt tastes better than soy, as does coconut ice cream, IMO. almond butter with apple slices. Daiya brand makes some pretty tasty vegan cheese (might check to make sure it's wheat free), we do that with sauteed mushrooms, onions and bell peppers and make corn tortilla quesadillas with guacamole to dip in, or just guacamole with corn chips is a lovely snack. Hope this helps!
I like Udi's snacks which are gluten free and a lot are dairy free as well. A little Udi's cookie or muffin makes for an easy on the go sweet snack and then I also think hummus and carrots are a great snack filled with protein. Hope that helps!
There are no egg free Udi's.
We are CHRONICALLY on the go and dairy, gluten, soy and corn free. We also can't eat most of the OPs listed snacks because we have blood sugar/insulin imbalances. We rely on black olives (they travel well!), nuts, peeled baby carrots, celery, cucumbers (although these are not great in the heat) and sometimes we have peanut butter, almond butter (available raw in single-serve packets), hummus (also available in on-the-go containers now, too!), or homemade guacamole.
The fats are good for keeping you full and help regulate blood sugar (which does wonders for children's behavior ;) )

Dairy, soy & corn free with limited gluten... yes, really. And journeying towards peace. Blogging about both.
