Treats You Can Trust

Like most parents, I want my kids to be happy and healthy, to feel a sense of belonging, to be themselves, and to enjoy life. As a nutritionist, I also want kids to have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies – to balance nutritious foods with treats, to try new foods, and to accept (lovingly) their bodies and their differences. Food allergies and special diets can create a complicated relationship with food and make it difficult to just be a kid. Did you know that researchers estimate that 1 in 13 kids have a food allergy? That’s a lot of kids struggling to feel included when snacks are being served at class parties and sports practices.

Thankfully there are companies like Homefree that make it their mission to create super inclusive products. Homefree takes cookies very seriously – from the ingredient quality to the taste to the standards of their dedicated bakery (the staff even changes into special clothes and shoes to ensure there is no cross-contact). You can trust that these cookies are free from gluten as well as dairy, nuts, eggs, soy and 10 other allergens, making them a treat option for most people with food allergies and sensitivities. 

And if that isn’t impressive enough, these award-winning cookies are good – crunchy with the perfect amount of sweetness. I tried every flavor I could get my hands on and loved every one. Good luck eating just one serving! The Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies are the perfect classic cookie with the right amount of crunch and chocolate. Somehow, in addition to being allergen-free and tasty, they have also managed to get some whole grains in their cookies with gluten-free whole oat flour. 

You can dunk these mini cookies in your milk of choice, crush them up for a tasty pie crust, crumble for a yogurt or ice cream topping, or just pop them in your mouth on-the-go. Homefree’s single-serve bags are perfect for lunch boxes and car snacks. Want to step up your cookie game with a unique twist? Try this recipe for Vegan Mini S’mores that uses Homefree Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies (plus marshmallows and chocolate of course) to create a super fun, super inclusive treat.
