This Spring, Joe and I realized our kids were surviving on cheddar Goldfish. They were easy. We were stressed. It happens to the best of us. No judgment here.
Our summer resolution: clean up our family snack game. We started a month-long adventure trying out low-sugar, gluten-free snacks with ingredients we recognized. As a busy mom, I needed portable and easy, not just healthy. Here are the winners.
Whole fruit: Apples, bananas, and tangerines were the most portable
Bare Apple chips: Satisfies chip cravings, but 100% apples
Raisins: Insanely cheap, natures candy
Kids RXBars: 7 recognizable ingredients in kid-friendly flavors
Kind Minis: Satisfies that sweet chocolate craving with only 3g of sugar
Rice rollers: Great morning option for the ride to school, just 3g of sugar
Oloves: Great non-carb option. My kids pounded 2 packages each on the first try
Hummus: Perfect with mini-carrots (which are also favorite solo)
Buddha Bowl Popcorn: 3 ingredients that are the perfect Goldfish replacement
The best part? They work for you, too! Send me over your favorites!
This week look out for more tips to help you and your family eat healthier.
