Whether school is in session or not, busy families often eat the occasional meal while dashing out the door or during a break between adventures. It’s hard to find food that travels well but is also healthy. It’s not surprising that the folks at Whole Foods Market have been able to bridge the gap with great breakfast and snack items that are both convenient and made with quality ingredients. You can feel comfortable putting any of these items in a school lunchbox or on the “healthy snacks” shelf in the fridge.
365 Everyday Value Organic Mini Waffles fulfill two of my son Charlie’s morning meal requirements – they are handheld and they are waffles. If you are eating a quick breakfast before heading out to school, these can be fun “dippable” bites with real maple syrup. Or they can be a snack-on-the go with a piece of fruit. These come in Homestyle, Blueberry, or Apple Cinnamon.
Yet another food that can be breakfast or a snack, Morning O’s are a staple in our house. They taste just as delicious (and healthy) in a bowl with milk and sliced bananas as they do by the handful out of a snack pack.
Tart, but sweet. Fresh, but in a convenient package. 365 Everyday Value Organic Diced Pears are like the canned fruit you remember loving as a kid but 10,000 times better. They also make a great healthy dessert!
They are tasty, but the 365 Everyday Value Organic Yogurts also pack valuable does of protein and calcium for growing youngsters. They also continue the theme of snacks that can be scoffed by both children and adults alike. I might be able to suggest that the Vanilla and Raspberry swirled together is heavenly. Maybe.
Available in Light and Low-Moisture, the 365 Everyday Value Organic String Cheese is always on hand in my house. I seem to always have one in my purse, or in the diaper bag, for times when my toddler’s hungry monster makes an appearance. They are a great (and fun!) way for your kiddo to get in a healthy snack while also feeling like they’re getting away with playing with their food.
I’m saving the best for last. These. things. are. addictive. Or awesome. I mean, they’re awesome. Where you prefer peach, berry blend, cranberry, strawberry, cherry, or blueberry, the 365 Everyday Value Organic Fruit Strips are pretty much the perfect snack. They are naturally sweet and satisfy a midday snack attack.
