Healthy Snacks for On-The-Go

As a parent, you are always on the go. Instead of reaching for the poptarts and potato chips while in a rush, here are some healthy snack alternatives that your kids are sure to love.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Bites
This simple to make snack will be a win for both you and your kids. Just slice up a banana, put peanut butter between two pieces, dip them in chocolate and then freeze for 20 minutes. It is the healthy dessert that you can’t go wrong with.

 

Hummus and Veggies
Sometimes veggies aren’t a kids favorite snack but if you add  hummus or a little ranch dressing, you will be able to get them eating their veggies in no time.
 

Ants on a Log
This tasty treat is not only good for you but is fun to eat. Just add peanut butter and raisins to a slice of celery and you have a healthy treat for both you and the kids to enjoy.
 

Pop-Up To-Go Cup
The Chip Shoppe’s pop-up to-go cup is just what you need for breakfast on the go! Just add milk and you have a fast and easy way to start your day with a healthy breakfast.
 

Fruit Kabob
An apple a day can be a healthy alternative to many children’s snacks, but getting your kids to enjoy eating fruit may be a battle. Pre-make fruit kabobs for a fast, easy and healthy snack to get your nutrients while you are in a rush.
 

Meat and Cheese Pinwheels
These delicious snacks are just what you need to hold you over until dinner. You can add meat, cheese, veggies and any other sandwich item that your kids enjoy.
 


Although these are just a few healthy options, at The Chip Shoppe we believe that every family should have a balanced diet and choose the healthiest options that the whole family will enjoy. For more snack ideas refer to our “Simple Snacks That Kids Can Make” blog.
