Super Snacks for On-the-Go Summers

Hippie Chow

It’s hard for my kids to slow down in the summer, even when it comes time to eat. That’s why I try to keep a wide variety of snack foods at the ready, so we can keep going with the fun!

Prepping batches of snacks makes things easier whether you’re sticking close to home this summer, hitting the beach, or gearing up for a long car ride. No one wants to have to worry about where to get the next bite to eat, so having bites ready to go saves your sanity and fends off the hangries.

Keep snacks handy by storing them in individual containers like reusable lunch bags or small Mason jars. Mason jars are also great if your kids like to dip — simply put your dip, hummus, or nut butter in the bottom, add some veggie sticks, and you’ve got an on-the-go snack pack.
