With school lunches in full swing,
I thought I’d share one of our favorite lunch box goodies with you all today.
Sea Salt Garden Veggie Straws by Sensible Portions
Really, do these count as a veggie?
Or are they a chip?
Or a snack?
I guess we kinda consider them all the above.
And in this post, we’ll share a few thoughts from other milk allergy moms on this product, too.
It was so fun to get mom feedback inside our shopping group on Facebook!
While I love buying good, inexpensive fresh produce from Aldi,
having it washed and cut and ready to go for the week…
there are several easy veggies my kiddo can’t eat raw because of oral allergy syndrome.
Carrots, celery, and peppers all bother him significantly enough not to eat at school.
Now pickles and cucumbers…those are a go.
But a kid can only eat so many cucumbers and pickles, ya know?
Oh, and cherry tomatoes.
The start of school is great when we still have these growing in our garden.
However, that season is short lived.
So veggie straws, it is. We mix things up by adding these to his sack lunch every now and then.
Easy peasy. And he’s a fan.
But note, we actually didn’t eat this brand for several years because I think they had a “may contain milk” statement on them.
Anyone remember this, too?
Since we now come across packages without that statement, we called the company and liked what we heard.
So kiddo started eating and enjoying them.
Definitely call companies for manufacturing information if you need to.
Below, I’ll show you the ingredients on our recent package by Sensible Portions.

FEEDBACK OF ALLERGY MOMS
Now I’m excited for this bit.
Here’s what other milk allergy moms say about this brand.
Several moms warned not to accidentally grab the ranch or cheddar flavors that contain milk. We concur!
Some store brands do contain milk so make sure you buy the right brand. That’s important!
And a great buying tip, you can order through Target online…including a package of single serves.
Plus, there are large bags through Sam’s Club and Costco. Great for sharing with friends!
They also make a veggie chip, in addition to the straws.
They also make apple cinnamon straws that are allergy-friendly for many, yum!
Moms also let us know you can order snack sized bags on Amazon (affiliate).
A final tip we loved…
they sell seasonal snack bags perfect to share at school holiday parties. Moms will probably thank you for this! Hashtag, less sugar.
Here are some final allergy mom notes:
“We love them!!!”
“My little one loves these.”
“We eat them all the time!”
“Veggie straws are a staple for us!”
“They are delicious.”
“We love them here, too!”
Now here are the ingredients on our current bag.
Be sure to double-check labels as ingredients can change.
