#2 Noodles And Pasta


Noodles are a great kid-friendly option to keep your child nourished during the day. Add a sauce with roasted veggies to mix in some nutrients, and include cheese or meatballs for some protein as well. And if you want to cut down on the carbs, use spaghetti squash or noodles made from vegetables instead.

#4 Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips

Our mission is to rid the world of unhealthy snacks. We will fight long and hard to rid every last glow-in-the-dark-chip, artificially infused food-like-object from this planet and replace them with Bean Chips. Bean Chips are delicious, nutritious, and sustainable for the environment. All of our flavors are, and always will be, Non-GMO, free of the top 8 allergens, gluten-free, and vegan.

Our chips are baked, not fried, and are packed with double the protein and fiber than potato and tortilla chips. Our Nacho flavor has always been our staple and our most kid-friendly flavor.
