How do busy moms provide healthy snacks for their kids?

Posted by   + Show Post

Getting your child to eat healthy snacks when you're on the go can be a tough job but it doesn't have to be. We gave 40 CafeMom members "On-the-Go Family Fun" packs complete with portable activities and Snack & Go products from  Mott's and asked them to try it with their families. Only Mott's Applesauce pouch has true applesauce taste in a convenient package for busy families on the go!


Tell us about your busy family. How do you provide healthy snacks for your kids?

Quoting endurablemist:

Here's my youngest, giving the rest of hers to my nephew. Excuse the mess I'm babysitting him, and it easier to wait till morning to try and clean.

How sweet

 We try to do healthier snacks like yogurt, fruit, apple sauce, veggies, whole grain crackers and cheese sticks.  I haven't heard about the Mott's applesauce packets and they sound cool!

For my toddler we use the fruit squeeze pouches, she loves them.

for my boys, we usually do crackers, or short bread cookies, I try not to give them things with alot of salt and sugar.

she looks like she was enjoying it!

I normally get my DD the gerber graduate ones, but I am thinking of picking up the motts ones.

The fun packs sound like a great idea!

I provide them with grapes and raisens. Things that are easy to eat :)

luckily most fast food places have a fruit cup or apple slices if we are out too long.
