When you’re family is always on the move (and let’s face it, whose isn’t), you want to have some healthy snacks to pack up so you don’t have to stop. The dreaded quickie mart or fast food restaurant never satiates snack time (or any random time) cravings. Let’s face it, we all know what the hangry meltdown looks like, and it’s not pretty.
We have put together a bunch of delicious and nutritious snacks to pack along for your next excursion. Let’s take a look:
The uninitiated might be surprised that a smoothy can curb hunger in a delicious minute. Power packed with fruit, veggies, chia seeds, hemp seeds, berries and so many other healthy ingredients, a smoothy can be one of the best go-to healthy snacks for all ages. Shop all smoothies or buy individually.
Granola bars are a classic when it comes to on-the-go treats. There’s nothing easier than throwing a few bars into your day bag and employing them when you or your kids are feeling snacky. The problem is that most of the granola bars you buy in the grocery store are loaded with sugar. Try these delicious granola super treats for a healthier fresher snack. You can buy on their own at Family Meals.
Getting enough quality protein into our diet is essential. Especially for those of us who prefer vegetarian or plant based diets. These Protein Balls are packed with some of the healthiest protein sources available like chia seeds, hemp seeds and almonds. Just the right amount of sweet combined with a rich chocolate drizzle and you have a delicious on-the-go treat. Buy on One Potato or add to your cart on Family Meals.
One of our favorite go to breakfast or treats. This is such a creamy and decadent option and one that we love to make. It comes with crushed nuts that you can add in on top. Easy to grab and go on the run. See on One Potato or buy individually.
Everybody loves these little critter confections, but you’ve likely never had Animal Crackers this delicious. Seriously, just try them. Handmade with all whole food ingredients, introduce these to a whole new generation of snackers and watch the smiles light up the room. Buy on One Potato or add individually through Family Meals Made Easy.
