Trader Joe’s 12 Grain Mini Snack Crackers Review
STAR RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (out of 5)
Finding snack crackers that are peanut safe, healthy(ish), AND that my kids will eat is not always an easy task. But, these crackers do the trick! They’re a smaller, snack-y size, which is perfect for tiny hands and snack cups. Also, they’re filled with tons of healthy grains like oats, barley, millet and rye. Did you know the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rates foods? They’ve given these crackers a “5” (1 = best; 10 = worst), so that means they’re right smack dab in the middle, which I’m okay with. I mean, crackers in general aren’t known to be the BEST EVER for you, These are great as is, or served with cheese, dipped in hummus, etc. Again, my kids love them!
Not certified organic, considered a “processed food” that contains food additives, does contain added sugar.
Trader Joe’s 12 Grain Mini Snack Crackers are vegan, peanut free, tree nut free, egg free. Dairy free, but made on equipment shared with milk, so risk of cross contamination with dairy is present. I called their customer service line (June, 2019) to confirm that SKU 0092-3064 is made in a nut-free facility. Note that Trader Joe’s uses different vendors depending on where you’re located, so if you have a different SKU, please call Trader Joe’s HQ at: (626) 599-3700.

In addition to providing product information for safe, peanut-free snacks and other products, you’ll also find an ever-growing recipe index of allergy-friendly (and family friendly) dinners, desserts, side dishes and other treats. All recipes on this site are peanut free, but I also list additional information to accommodate other special diets and food allergies when possible.
One of my goals with this series of peanut safe product posts is to provide an easier, more detailed, online shopping + product review service for my fellow grocery store nutrition label reading friends. You know what I’m talking about. Maybe you have a food allergy yourself, or maybe you’re a food allergy mom like me. Either way, you know how exhausting it can be to carefully scan nutrition label after nutrition label, checking to see if every single product you buy is safe for you and your family. On Flavorpalooza, you can see the labels for yourself, from the comfort of your couch, car, wherever!
Please note, labels are constantly changing, so please pay extra close attention to the dates assigned to these posts and pictures. Also, I always like to remind my readers of my general disclaimer: that although these products at the time of purchase were deemed safe for my son’s peanut allergy, you should always follow the advice of your doctor/allergist and do your own due diligence before deciding if a product is safe for you.
