Kid-friendly snacks don’t have to be unhealthy or boring! After so many of our readers appreciate our compilation of the best kid-friendly vegan recipes, we wanted to focus on just vegan snacks for kids in this post.

Compared to cooking your pre-planned family-friendly dinner, having a quick snack for your child on hand once it gets hangry can be more tricky!

Whether you’re new to plant-based eating yourself or just feel stuck and in need of some new snack ideas, the following recipes are familiar favorites of young and old alike — not just kids can enjoy them!

From fruity bites to healthy baked goods, savory rolls and refreshing frozen treats, our list offers something for every taste! Many items can even be packed for a snack box.

Please keep in mind that smaller children may have different dietary needs and restrictions while teenagers can handle more “grown-up” food. Find our full guide to raising vegan kids here!

Portion sizes will also depend on the child in question and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with feeding your kid store-bought vegan snacks like crackers or bars!

We’ll now share with you some hand-picked vegan snack ideas suitable for kids and picky eaters but don’t forget to check out our super quick-and-easy snacks printable at the end!
