Snacking on the go is a way of life for busy moms and kids. What are the wholesome snacks you reach for on the way out the door?

Welcome to the board. I have three daughters ranging frm 14 to 10. I have had the same question. Try getting some microwaved popcorn for those quick trips. You can monitor how much they are eating and control the content by getting a non buttered and placing just alittle seasoning on it. I also like to bring dried apple pieces or the crackers with cheese in the middle. My girls are not allowed cookies, chips or soda. I peel some oranges and place them in a sandwich baggie for the on the go. Frozen grapes are great for the summer time too that way they get their fruit and they think of it also like an ice pop to cool them off

Hi! We do granola bars, raisins, bananas, apples that are sliced up, cheese sticks, little boxes of cranberries, cranraisins, Quaker rice cakes, pretzels, cheese crackers, peanut butter crackers that I make up ahead of time, the packs of apple sauce or pamagrante, and if you can keep them cold those drinkable yogurts.

Granola bars are also a staple in our house. As well as string cheese, fruit and dry cereal in a baggie.

We love to do granola bars around here. We like to do yogurt and other foods that give us what we need for a healthy diet but also taste good so that everyone wants to eat them!!

Pretzels and cheese sticks are my kids' favs. They also love fresh fruit and vegies (especially carrots and cuccumbers). We always carry small bottles of water or juice boxes too for longer trips.

Same with my kids, they love cheese and pretzels. What I add to the snack is a dip.

As a general rule, kids (and adults, too) love to dip food into other food. It’s fun, it’s delicious, it’s messy, … it’s just like parenting!

The same is true for my kids. They often snack on pretzels, cheese, or fruit and veggie platters. A way we found to keep the little ones interested in the food sis by adding dips.
