Easter Camp Snacks!

Many kids are having fun at Easter camps all this week.  That means many parents are busy packing a full day of snacks and lunches for kids to enjoy.  As with schools, most camps have a healthy eating policy in place and encourage parents to pack healthy items for kids to have during their fun and busy days.  The more whole foods the better – whole fruits and veggies are best!  Here are some healthy snacks to try this week at Easter camp:

Healthy Snack Ideas

  • Vegetables and a low fat dip
  • Fresh fruit and veggies already cut and cleaned are always a great choice
  • Fruit cups packed in water
  • Whole grain crackers with cheese or peanut butter (if allowed)
  • Trail mix that includes granola, dried berries, dry cereal and a variety of nuts (if allowed)
  • Bowl of fruit with yogurt – sprinkle some granola for extra energy and fiber (seek nut free granola if allergies)
  • Homemade muffins made with whole grain flour
  • Baggies of dried whole grain cereals
  • Pre-popped popcorn

Always be sure to check with your camp operator for allergies when sending snacks to camp.
