Healthy snack ideas to gift

vanessa7 | Feb 22, 201801:06 PM     14

For Christmas, I gifted my in-laws a 12 month “subscription” of baked goods for my FIL and healthy snacks for my MIL. The tricky part is that my mother-in-law’s diet is pretty strict (no dried fruits, dates, coconut, beets) and she is somewhat picky. I also wanted to keep it pretty seasonal. In January, I did Ina Garten’s rosemary roasted cashews, but I don’t think they went over very well. I was planning on doing beet hummus (thinking it would be nice for Valentine’s Day) before I found out she can’t have beets. I’m looking for ideas for this month and the rest of the year. So far I am thinking:

A granola without dried fruit or coconut perhaps with fresh fruit, homeade yogurt?
Hummus
Kombucha? (A little intimidated by the idea of making it and she’s never had it so I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t like it)
Kale chips
Roasted chickpeas

Any other suggestions? She usually snacks on hummus, vegetables, low-fat cheese, and Kashi crackers.

Many thanks!
