Target Dairy-Free Shelf-Stable Snacks (VIDEO)

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!

Dairy Free Snacks at Target

Always check labels as ingredients can change.

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.

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!

A newer brand for cheese in my area is Follow Your Heat. It comes in slices and shredded. Even my daughter that loves grilled cheese with dairy-full cheese thought this brand made an excellent dairy-free option. It has also opened up other things for us like enchiladas, lasagna and pizza. We have never cared for other brand prior to this and are happy to have a viable option that even the dairy eaters can enjoy.

Thanks, Kristin! That one's good, too!

Thank you! I first came to this post 5 years ago when my daughter was diagnosed with a dairy allergy and peanut allergy. Oreos are her favorite, but right she is loving the golden Oreos. Another favorite snack of hers you could add to the list is skinny pop.

Awwwww, memory lane. Thanks for sharing that, Liz. And yes to Skinny Pop! Just don't grab the real cheese variety with milk, right? ;)

Our son is highly allergic to all forms of dairy protein, as we have tested them all individually. And he eats these crackers regularly.


Sunday 17th of January 2016

Club crackers are not dairy free. There is a difference between dairy free, non-dairy, lactose free and things that simply don't contain milk, butter or cheese. If you are looking for truly dairy free, this means absolutely nothing that comes from cow's milk protein. It's not the milk that's the problem, rather the protein. This means whey, casein and a laundry list of other things. Even some, maybe most or all, margarine has butter flavor in it, which actually comes from cow's milk. It's very important to know what your exact issue is, how to properly identify it by name and identify the ingredients that are not ok.

Anonymous, those are all great ideas! We have not braved any restaurants yet. But mine is just 9. Age 13, hope he is close to healing!
