Whether you are shuttling your kids to their after school activities or packing up and taking your family on a quick trip-you are going to need lots of snacks. But instead of grabbing unhealthy snacks or spending a small fortune while you are on the road, here are a few ways to make sure you always have healthy and yummy snacks on hand for your kids.
Healthy Snacking is Easy When You Pack:
Fresh fruit is always a great option for a healthy snack. Since you are going to be in the car, go for easy to serve and less messy fruit options like sliced grapes, sliced apples and peeled oranges.
We are also big fans of freeze dried fruit like strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. Before the trip, divide the fruit into individual servings and place in plastic sandwich bags.
Fresh veggies like carrots and celery sticks are a great option and easy to serve with dips like peanut butter and hummus, which can be found in individual travel sizes as well.
