2. Soy Creamy Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert

My son is allergic to dairy and I am so thankful that Trader Joe's has delicious vanilla soy ice cream! Other soy ice cream brands we've tried are way too sweet but the vanilla one at Trader Joe's is super yummy! —kristinebulan

5. Curried Carrot and Cashew Dip

I just tried the Curried Carrot and Cashew Dip and it's so so yummy. It's obviously not for nut-free kids, but it's very low in sugar (1g) and high in vitamins, bright orange, and sweet to boot!—Haley Kate, Facebook

7. Creamy No-Salt Organic Peanut Butter

I love their creamy, no-salt organic peanut butter because it only has one ingredient, peanuts! My toddler enjoys it on pancakes in the morning or on bread as a snack. —luckyspyrah

20. Microwavable Mac & Cheese

It's actually really good mac and cheese! It's also perfect for the nights when my husband and I want something spicy to eat. Our 5-year-old isn't a fan of spice so this saves me from having to make an entire meal just for him. It's also great for a quick snack, even for myself. —callscotlandyard
