Welcome to the evolution of shopping for food allergies!
This post was written 10 years ago, and is still a popular stop for food allergy mamas looking for snack ideas.
I sure appreciate that! So we are going to give this post a big ole’ update.
You deserve it!
Be sure to read all the way through to learn how I earned Starbucks on this Target trip.
You deserve that, too!
Also, watch how we “eat out” at Target in this post!

Below is my sad little 2009 Target shopping trip. I found a total of 7 dairy-free items, woohoo.
Do Keebler Sandwich Bites even exist anymore? (lol) Check ingredients if they do!!!
And those wafer cookies? I stopped buying them, and I’m not sure why. Milk? Nuts? Read those labels, too!
Read all the labels, friends.
2009 Target Snacks
Always check labels as ingredients can change.
But now let’s get to 2019. Shall we?
I headed to Target on a mission, and put myself back in new allergy mom mode…
picking up lots of dairy-free snacks I think you’ll love!
2019 Target Snacks
Looky there! So many more options in 2019!
I tried to stick to shelf-stable snacks, staying true to this post’s original purpose in 2009.
My boys were energetic preschoolers back then, who didn’t even play video games yet, ha!
Please rewind the childhood years, but let’s keep all the new food options!
Now time to show you the 2019 snack finds!
Products That Withstood Time
Kashi Breakfast Bars, great for breakfast!
Who doesn’t need more breakfast ideas?!
Keebler Club Crackers, right up there with Ritz as far as kiddo is concerned.
Still not sick of these after 12 years.
I subbed out the old fruit snacks for newer fruit strips!
Love that they don’t have corn syrup.
Other Oldies But Goodies
Glad these are still dairy-free and hope they stay that way!
Animal crackers, with a new look. Animals roaming free.
We’ve eaten classic Oreos with anaphylactic milk allergy for 13 years.
And these mini cookies are a fave in our house.
See the $1 tubs at checkout!
Instant oatmeal, my kids are in love.
And they can make their own breakfast!
Check flavors, not all are dairy-free.
New Kids On The Block
It’s so exciting to add these to the line-up after 10 years.
Yes, please, to convenient protein!!!
We are fans of Vermont meat sticks in many flavors.
I best like the Original flavor.
Sick of raisins for dried fruit?
We absolutely love this brand of dried mango, and now there are individual packs!
When you need super allergy-friendly and some hidden vegetables…
these delicious bars do not disappoint!
They make granola bars AND rice bars.
My favorite electrolyte drink, coconut water.
Always looking for a sale on these!
The Grand Finale
I would have appreciated having dairy-free, allergy-friendly chocolate chips at Target way back when.
And now we have TWO brands there!
Cookies, trial mix, the possibilities are endless.
And that’s a wrap, for now, of our dairy-free shelf stable snacks.
Maybe we won’t wait until 2029 to update again, gasp!
Now if you have any other dairy-free, shelf-stable snacks we need to pick up at Target, please let us know in the comments.
We’d love to hear!
And below is how I fund my Starbucks drinks for free!
MY FAVORITE FOOD REBATE APP
I earned over $5 back on this trip with my favorite rebate app.
And that will be redeemed on some mommy fuel at Starbucks!
Check out what I earned $5.25 on with this grocery trip:
Be sure to check out this awesome FOOD REBATE APP. You will love it!
So there you have it.
