Healthy Snacks for Kids
I feel like the older my kids get, the busier we get as a family. We love going on outings together, it seems like we are always busy and on the go! Sometimes we’re so busy during the day that I don’t notice we haven’t eaten until everyone is starving and cranky.
Lately I’ve really been making an effort to have healthy, easy snacks on hand to take on our adventures, and it has definitely been helping to tone down the crankiness around these parts. 🙂 Take a look at some of our favorites –

29. Homemade Trail Mix – I like to throw together whatever I have on hand and mix and match. Dark chocolate chips, dried cranberries, raisins, cashews, and peanuts. Yum!
30. Peanut butter and honey roll-ups: These are some of my girls’ favorite treats. I spread a tortilla with peanut butter, drizzle with honey, and roll it up. Another great source of protein and easy to take on the go.
Store-bought Snack Foods
Nature Valley Soft Baked Granola Bites: So delicious and easy to take on the go!
Fresh Fruit – Apples, Bananas, Fresh Berries, etc.
Tip: Cut apple slices in advance and have them ready in the fridge. Soaking them in club soda for a few minutes stops them from turning brown.
String cheese: My kids love cheese, and I love that they’re getting protein and calcium to support their growing bodies.
