I have three children ages 7, 5 and 2. We homeschool and are home most of the time. I don't allow too many snacks during the day, because we eat three good meals a day. I am trying to trim the budget and eat a little healthier. We normally buy a large box of fruit snacks for around $4 every two weeks. We also get a couple boxes of cracker that I would like to eliminate as well. That is another $6-8 every two weeks. I am wanting to find a healthier snack for around the same price. I was considering fruit. But it is more expensive and doesn't seem to last as long. They either eat it all within the first week(they like fruit) or it goes bad to quickly to last into the second week. Any suggestions?
*just to clarify...I do buy veggies and fruit along with these snacks..I'm just trying to find a healthier option to replace these other two items.
