There have been a lot of threads about this you might want to look at, too.

Upper right corner has a google box. Google snacks.

One example:9

One of my Favs is Cinnamon Chex or Chocolate Chex. Easy to carry some with you and close to healthy. :)

My boys always liked unsalted dry roasted peanuts

* Frozen banana/orange is a great summer time snack. I cut the banana in half and then halve again then each piece into a freezer bag. The bag is good to hold the banana while eating it frozen.

* My son loves yogurt (I only buy the basic/organic brands that are expensive but not like you need lots for lots of goodness) with banana or other fruit mixed in

* Mandarins - do you have these available locally? My son eats them by the bucket loads - like bananas they come with their own "wrapping" so for us super sensitive they tend to be safest to buy & eat on the run.

* Smoothies. I'm low income but decided a blender would be a great investment in our health. Well worth it. Not only do they fill us up they provide me with a bunch of calories that I am struggling to find lately. Lots of yogurt, honey (if you are a sweet tooth), full cream milk and lots of fresh fruit

Talk of smoothies reminded me. I saw on The Chew where they put the smoothie in Popsicle " makers" and froze them. Kids would really like that!

Some of these are more healthy than others. Just some ideas that I know are safe.

Cozy Shack Rice Pudding or Tapioca cups (in the dairy section)

All natural applesauce cups

Gluten-free cookies or muffins (Bake them or buy them.)

Pamela's Baking Mix is versatile and good for cookies, baked goods. There are many options (check the recipe and baking section on the forum)

Bagel with cream cheese and jam or nut butters. Udi's and Glutino bagels are pretty good (frozen section)

Pamela's and King Arthur gluten-free brownie mixes

Chobani Yogurt or So Delicious coconut milk Yogurts- if you cannot have dairy

Scharr cookies (chocolate-dipped shortbread or the mocha layers--are VERY tasty!)

Lundberg rice cakes or sliced apples and celery sticks with natural peanut butter or almond butter or hummus smeared on

Mary's Gone Crackers, Crunchmaster's or Glutino crackers with cheese or peanut butter or other nut spreads

BOAR's Head or Applegate Farms deli--ham, turkey, pepperoni, salami, proscuitto--most all cold cuts and cheeses

Slices of cantaloupe wrapped in proscuitto

Watermelon with crumbled feta cheese

Peanuts, almonds, cashews. (or make your own trail mix)

SUNMAID raisins, prunes. Craisins by Ocean Spray.

Smoothies- made with coconut milk, various fruits, yogurt, etc.

Potato chips----like Cape Cod, Kettle Brand, Utz

Indiana Popcorn--comes in all flavors--the kettle corn is delicious

Glutino brand pretzels—they come in all flavors even chocolate -coated

Coconut milk, creamer and ice cream ( So Delicious brand is very good)

Organic Corn chips w/salsa, hummus, or Guacamole

Sunflower , pumpkin or flaxseeds

Candy—Hershey's kisses or regular size bars, regular size Reese's cups, Snickers, York peppermint patty, Health Bars, Butterfinger and M &Ms plain and peanut. Ghirardelli squares. These were safe--last I read online--but READ LABELS!

Enjoy Life chocolate chips, chunks and Boom Choco Boom bars (free of ALL top 8 allergens)

Make some Chex mix with gluten-free chex cereals

gluten-free Rice Krispies treats (recipes are online)

gluten-free granola bars

Thinking of more things my kids ate and are a bit healthier:

A Chex mix with the corn & the Rice Chex, peanuts, raisins, M&Ms or Nestlé choco chips. Kids don't need a seasoning and baking in the oven mix.

PB on celery or apples or pancakes or waffles.

Cold cut roll- ups - roll a slice of ham or turkey around a piece of cheese & use a toothpick!

Pretty much anything like a hot dog or chunk of cheese or meat or melon or fruit on a toothpick especially if you let them stab the food themselves.

Yogurt

Yogurt as a fruit dip for toothpick fruit

Marshmallows ( could be added to the toothpick fruit)

Popcorn ( not good on toothpick)

These cookies that freeze well and taste great frozen:

Emeril’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

· 1 cup creamy peanut butter

· 1/2 cup granulated sugar

· 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

· 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

· 1 large egg, beaten

· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

· Cooking Directions

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total: 15 minutes

1. Position two oven racks in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth.

3. Divide the dough into 24 portions, about 1 heaping tablespoon each. Roll each portion between your hands to form a smooth ball. Place the balls of dough on ungreased cookie sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart. You should get about 12 cookies per sheet. Using

a fork, press on the dough in two directions to form a crosshatch pattern.

4. Bake the cookies, rotating the sheets between oven racks and turning them back to front midway, until the cookies are puffed and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheets. Then remove them with a metal spatula.

Makes about 24 cookies

    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
    • I have celiac and eosinaphalic esophagitis.  I was put on a steroid inhaler recently.  I use it like an inhaler but swallow the air instead of breathing it in.  You may want to look into EOE and it's relationship to celiac.  Just a thought. My swallowing and celiac seem to be related.
    • You have eat gluten every single day until after testing. And the celiac blood test is supposed to be done as well.
