With a little preparation, you can ensure that convenient, wholesome, on-the-go snacks are at the ready when it's time to head to play practice or ballet lessons. Here are a few snack ideas to keep your family happy and healthy:
1. Smoothies - While smoothies may not be the first thing that pops in your mind in terms of portability and convenience, with the right to-go cup, straw and lid, smoothies can be a great way to get some key nutrients en route.
3. Apple chips - If you're a fan of apples, consider making apple chips. Simply cut apples into about 1/8-inch thick slices, add a pinch of cinnamon, and place them in the oven at 200 degrees for roughly two hours. You'll end up with tasty, wholesome apple chips you can store in sealed sandwich bags for up to three days.
5. Homemade trail mix - For a shelf-stable snack that's perfect for storing in the car, at the office or in your purse, consider mixing up your favorite dry food snack items such as popcorn, almonds, peanuts, dried cranberries, raisins, banana chips and more.
