Having kids means constantly being on the go. Whether you’re carting them to and from school, sports, clubs, or friends’ houses, it’s incredible that you even find time to eat! Since it’s not always so easy to plan for what life with kids can throw your way, we wanted to share some healthy go-to snack options to keep on hand for those hectic days!
• Granola bars. Don’t be fooled by the non-nutritional granola bars stuffed with sugar. Look for low-sugar, high-fiber granola bars. Even the healthy granola bars can stick to your teeth, so be sure to have water on hand at all times to wash it down.
• Cheerios or other low-sugar, high-fiber cereal. Throw a bag or box of this cereal in your car for a healthy snack that will satisfy a hungry belly.
• String cheese. String cheese is not only nutritious and delicious but is fun for kids to eat! Grab one or two out of the fridge on your way out the door.
• Applesauce. Those small cups of applesauce can really come in handy when your child has a sweet craving while you’re out and about.
