What’s in your bag? Fuel your active family with these ‘grab and go’ snacks
Every active parent knows that when your child is hungry the last thing you have time for is to go home and make something or feed them an unhealthy drive through meal.Â Avoid processed and prepackaged snackingÂ and try these low calories and nutritious foodÂ ideas.
String Cheese: High in protein, potassium and most kids love cheese! Easy to keep in package or chopped up into squares. Try adding them to a skewer with grapes for a healthy protein and fruit snack, rich in energy and ready for a day in sports.
Granola Bites:Â Your steaming bowl of oatmeal is transformed into little flavorfulÂ nuggets, with all the same healthy benefits of whole grains and fiber.Â Made with whole grain oats. Big taste! Little bite.
Fruit Leather: There is nothing more delicious than purÃ©ed fruit, spread out and dried. Great form of energy just watch out for high sugar from the fruit.
Almonds:Â Heart-healthy almonds are a great snack on their own! 15 almonds will get you a snack right around 100 calories. Make sure there is no one with peanut allergies when serving nut snacks.
Sun Maid Raisins: Raisins get a boost with a vanilla-yogurt coating and pre-portioned in ready to go boxes. Warning, these are addictive.
Prepping ahead is key. Get all your snacks ready for the week and place them in a snack draw so they are easily accessible on the day you need them. What is your favorite go-to snack? Share with us in the comments below.
