Vegan Snacks for School [2022 Store-Bought List]

Sharing is caring!

Are your plant based kids ready to hit the books again? Don’t forget snacks! While we love home made, sometimes it’s nice to have quick, store bought vegan snacks for school.

And that is what this post is all about!

Check out our easy vegan snack ideas below for inspiration.

And of course it goes without saying that this list is not exhaustive of all vegan snacks for school (although that would be a pretty epic list)!

Alright, now that we got some of the preliminaries out of the way, lets get to the list!


A vegan classic that’s easy to take on the go, yet made with whole food ingredients, like dates and nuts. Is this sounding a bit like natures “candy bar?”

My daughter loves the cashew cookie variety. I’m not sure what my favorite is!

You can take a look at some pretty sweet flavors below (affiliate link*):

Skout Organic

Ok, so we haven’t tried these yet, but you can bet they are on my list!

For those who find organic ingredients important, this bar checks off that box.

Their Fruit Variety pack is naturally sweetened with dates, and lists that their products are free from some of the common allergens, like milk, eggs, and wheat.

Trail Mix

Obviously, you don’t have to be hitting the trails to enjoy this mix!

While Cheerios are not vegan, there are plenty of other vegan cereals you can use instead (or skip it altogether)!

Since whole nuts and dried fruits are choking hazards for young children, talk to your child’s pediatrician to make sure he/she is ready (check out this article from the CDC for more information).

A classic! I opt for the unsweetened varieties to cut down on added sugar.

To make this snack more nutritious, I sometimes add some ground seeds, like ground flaxseeds. Applesauce, leveled up (with nutrients 😉 ) !

Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs

Ok, I have to give a warning: you and your kiddo might find these a bit addictive!

In my opinion, they remind me slightly of cheese puffs with cheesy/nutty flavor.

These crunchy snacks have a decent amount of protein (4 grams per 1 ounce serving) and fiber at 3 grams per 1 ounce serving.

They are also organic and certified gluten free to boot (if those boots are important to you)!

When Costco has these on sale, I like to buy them for my family/guests (and watch their reaction when they find out Hippeas are vegan 😉 ).

You can find them below (affiliate link*) -as a reminder, this means if you click on these links and purchase, I may earn a commission at no added cost to you:

Made Good Granola Minis

Not only is Made Good’s entire line vegan, they also state their products are organic, gluten free, and free from from certain common allergens.

Their granola minis even contain some extra vitamins (like vitamin A, D, C, and E), and ingredients include vegetable extracts.

These get a thumbs up from both hubby and my daughter in the flavor department!

They are like granola bars, but in a snackable “ball” form.

We have only tried the chocolate chips and mixed berry flavors, but there are other varieties as well (such as a chocolate banana, strawberry, and cookies & crème).

You can check them out below (affiliate link*):

Ripple Original Shelf-Stable Plant-Based Milk

This plant based “milk” is packed with protein at 8 grams per serving. For reference, one cup of dairy milk contains around 8 grams of protein as well!

How does it taste? In my opinion, reminiscent of milk but, my non vegan husband disagrees. 😀

Ripple Original also includes some calcium and vitamin D, nutrients that were identified by the 2020-2025 Dietary guidelines as nutrients of public health concern.

And lastly, we just had to point out that this plant based based beverage is fortified with vitamin B12, a nutrient that vegans should talk to their doctor about supplementing.

Hummus or Seed/Nut Butter With Crackers

We would be remiss if we didn’t include this famous combo that both young and young at heart can appreciate!

This healthy vegan snack can be easily switched up with different flavored hummus dips and cracker options (although if appropriate, go for whole grain crackers).

As far as seed/nut butter options go many of us now have more options than classic peanut butter!

Seed, cashew, sunflower, almond butters, etc are available in many stores.

Vegan Snacks for School – Final Words

Vegan kids can eat delicious and healthy snacks!

Before you send your kids off to school, be aware that some schools have rules about what you can and cannot bring.

For example, due to common peanut allergies, certain schools will not let kids bring peanuts/peanut containing foods. Make sure you are aware of any rules beforehand.

Ask your pediatrician if you have any concerns about what to feed your child, and best wishes for happy snacking!
