If you have a family, you are snacking. Healthy snacks are a must in any busy household! They can be great fuel bombs for small children, satisfy in-between meal cravings, and are a great way to get more plants in your diet. There are lots of whole food, healthy snacks you can make in your own house, but let’s face it, you need packaged options that are great in a pinch. Feel free to mix and match and aim to include two food groups with each snack to increase nutrition and satiety, especially for the kids. Happy Snacking!
