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 –

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.
