Growing up, snacks were always a staple in my stocking on Christmas morning. I would receive a variety of tasty treats from candy bars to Cracker Jacks. Candy can add a little sugar to Christmas morning, but conventional candy can be loaded with a number of different allergens, preservatives, artificial flavors, dyes, and genetically-modified organisms. So what is the health-conscience parent to do?

Fortunately there are a number of organic and allergy-friendly food options that make perfect stocking stuffers. These items can add a little sweetness, without putting your little one in danger or sacrificing your health. Here are my top five picks for stocking stuffers this year.
