Summer Snacks You Can Feel Good About

Getting ready for summer vacation is an exciting time for kids who have been working hard all year and looking forward to a break. Make their time at home fun and healthy by providing delicious, nutritious snacks, especially for when you aren’t there to supervise what they are eating.

Be sure to have plenty of fresh fruit, veggies and wholesome snacks in single servings they can help themselves to either by buying pre-packaged items like carrot sticks, yogurt, cheese sticks and whole grain snacks or if you have the time and want to save a few bucks, buy whole items like melons and pineapple and put it in the fridge in containers kids can see through easily so they know its there and don’t try to find where you hid the junk food instead. Keep plenty of apples, bananas and bottled waters, juice boxes or other healthy drinks handy for kids on the go so they don’t get dehydrated or fatigued from not eating and opt for sodas and junk food instead.
