What about packaging used for crisps and snacks and other dry food items?

There seems to be a good discussion about plastic bottles and packaging used for fruit and veg but what about packaging produced for the use of crisps, baby food pouches and snacks and other dry food items? Most of these are non-recyclable or very hard to find recycling points (terracycle have a few collection points but they are few and far between) meaning most end up in landfill. Any ideas on what we can do to limit and recycle this form of plastic packaging?

Two Farmers sells crisps in a compostable bag.
There are alternatives we should use to replace plastic in these instances.

I’d like a ban on non-recyclable packaging, legislation obliging local councils to offer kerbside recycling of the complete range of ‘recyclable’ packaging, and for recycling costs to be passed onto industries.
