20 Perfect On The Go Snacks

Fall is in full swing and it’s time to get out and enjoy all the fresh, autumn air that you can. You’ll have more time to spend out and about if you pack any of these easy on-the-go snacks.

 

  1. Peanut Butter Pretzel Crisps® Sandwiches: For a fun treat – and a way to change up a great snack – spread peanut butter on one side of a Sesame Pretzel Crisps® and top with another Pretzel Crisp.

 

  1. Fresh fruit: Apples, bananas, oranges, or grapes. All great healthy choices; just make sure to clean fruit before packing it in the park bag.

 

  1. Dried fruit: Sometimes easier than fresh fruit, dried fruit takes up less room and gives kids that sweet treat that they often beg for.

 

  1. Graham crackers: A tried and true hit with kids

 

  1. Fresh veggies: Pack small bags of baby carrots, cut celery, or grape tomatoes. Chopped cauliflower and broccoli are options, too.

 

  1. Granola bars: It’s fun to come up with your own combinations and make these at home, or buy them at the store. Either way, these are an easy treat to always have in your bag.

 

  1. Trail mix: Whether you buy it or make your own, a little bit of trail mix is a great way to give the little ones a boost of energy.

 

  1. Bagels: Bagels hold up better than bread, so they are a great addition to put in that snack bag.

 

  1. Nuts: As long as there are no allergies, bring along an assortment of mixed nuts.

 

  1. Cheese sticks: Make sure you put these in your bag right before leaving and don’t leave them out in direct sunlight.

 

  1. Water bottles: Not necessarily a snack, but definitely a necessity.

 

  1. Marshmallows: Not the healthiest snack so you wouldn’t pack this one every time. They are easy to transport and inexpensive.

 

  1. Popcorn: If you take air-popped popcorn it’s also a very affordable snack.  Flavor it up with a little bit of butter and salt, or get creative with cheese or other flavorings.

 

  1. Applesauce: You can either buy this in individual portions, or portion it out before you go. Just don’t forget the spoons!

 

  1. Fruit leather: Another item that can be made from scratch or bought at the store. Either way, kids love it!

 

  1. Pudding cups: It’s fairly easy to find pudding cups that don’t have to be refrigerated, which makes them easier for toting around.

 

  1. Roasted Chickpeas: You can make these sweet or savory, both are healthy and tasty.

 

  1. Yogurt covered raisins: Purchase these in individual packages for easy traveling and dividing.

 

  1. Pancakes: This may sound like a strange choice, but leftover pancakes are super easy to tote around and kids love snacking on them – no syrup required!

 

  1. Muffins: Muffins aren’t just for breakfast! Make up an extra batch and stick them in the freezer. Next time you need a quick snack, let them thaw while the kids are playing for an easy, no-stress snack.
