Thirteen years with severe milk allergy, and original Ritz crackers have been a dairy-free staple in our family all this time.
I don’t think my kiddos will ever tire of them. Here are some fun ideas kids love!
Be sure to always check labels as ingredients can change.

It’s so funny,
because I’m pretty sure Ritz were probably one of our first dairy-free food finds here at Milk Allergy Mom…
and I’m certain it was one of our first blog posts over a decade ago.
But somewhere along the way I was horrified by the dark, sad picture I took when my now teens were babies.
And I hid the post for years here.
However, my kids’ newfound love for these Ritz original fresh stacks reminded me to share this fun food find again!
Better pictures this time.
So often on our Facebook page we are asked if Ritz crackers are indeed dairy-free and milk allergy friendly.
Well, we’ve eaten them for years and years and years.
Just be sure to double check labels for yourself, ingredients can change.
Our ingredients are shown below.
Now back to these fresh stacks…
Ya know, like lunchables. But dairy-free.
If we are feeling especially lazy,
my kids will just spread peanut butter on them.
If you are allergic, try your own safe seed or nut butter.
I consider that a protein…and easy lunch is served.
If you have a little more time,
check out how we use Ritz crackers for snack boards like this.
We also use Ritz crackers to make dairy-free thin mint girls scout cookies!
Say what?! I sure hope you click that link and check those cookies out.
So there you have it.
Yes, this milk allergy family has eaten Ritz ORIGINAL crackers for ages.
Make sure you grab the right variety because they do make cheese and peanut butter versions.
We only get original or wheat.
But from toddlers to teens, it’s been a great snack for us.
And we hope you get to try them, too!
