Smart Snacking!

The key to smart snacking is having foods prepared in times when you and your family are busy and on the go.  Having snack items easily accessible and ready to grab while you’re going out the door is important.  These snack ideas also make great “Grab and Go” breakfasts for our Kids Eat Smart Clubs.

Here are a few items you should always have on hand to pack a lunch or snack on the go:

  • Cut and washed fruits and veggies
  • Yogurt
  • Cheese
  • Whole grain crackers

Try this delicious recipe as your homemade trail mix:

  • Whole grain cereal
  • Cranberries & raisins
  • Almonds (ensuring no nut allergies)

Great to snack on dry or add milk.
