Healthy Families: Snacks on the Go

The holidays are busy. And that's an understatement. But between drop offs at school, soccer practices, and shopping, our families are bound to get a little bit hungry when dinner is running late. So to make these snacks count, I put together a list of some of my family's favorite on the go snacks.

Plastic cup filled with two scoops of hummus and place carrot, celery and bell pepper spears on top for dipping

Create your own trailmix with raisins, almonds, chocolate chips, and unsweetened coconut

Fill a plastic cup with peanut butter and add sliced apples for dipping

Spread peanut butter on a whole wheat tortilla and add banana sliced for a quick roll up

Blend yogurt, frozen berries, and juice for a quick smoothie

Grab a yogurt cup and add low fat granola for crunch

Moms, what are your favorite go to healthy snacks?

I keep a trail mix of nuts (no peanuts), coconut shreds, dried cranberries, and dark chocolate chips handy.  We also like fresh fruit, jerky, or cheese.
