SNACKS. My lifeline to getting through the day. I’ve got a ‘snack stash’ in my purse {gym bag, work bag, car…the list goes on}.

And as a new mom I’ve learned snacks are a requirement for most adventures. Going to the park, pack a snack. Going grocery shopping, pack a snack. Going for a stroller run, pack a snack. Going on a three hour plane ride, pack an entire backpack full of snacks {for your child and husband}.

We’re gearing up for another trip to California this weekend and back-to-school signs are in full-force, so I thought it was a good time to share my favorite, healthy packable snacks — both homemade and store-bought. 

The best store-bought snacks for kids

Healthy Packable Snacks {Store-Bought Favorites}

Let’s start by digging through my cupboard stash.

Even if you’re an avid meal prepper, sometimes convenience outweighs the time and effort it takes to make something from scratch. We all need those, easy grab-n-go options. So these are my favorite store-bought snacks to have on hand. 

  1. Veggie Chips + Straws
  2. Freeze Dried Fruit
  3. Nut Butter Packets
  4. Healthy, Store Bought Bars
  5. Fruit + Veggie Pouches {Brody B’s Favorite}

Healthy Packable Snacks {DIY, Homemade Favorites}

Now onto some staple homemade, packable snack recipes that are part of my weekly meal prep routine. I’ve collected these recipes from some of my favorite foodies on the web.

Although most of these snacks require some type of refrigeration because they are made with wholesome, nutrient dense ingredients, my hack is to freeze them. I grab them from the freezer before I head out allowing them to thaw, yet stay cold. 

Another great option is to use this PackIt Freezable Lunch Bag {I have two and love them, I got hooked when I was using them for storing breastmilk}. I also use these Reusable Zip Storage Bags {for me} and Leakproof YumBox Snack Box {for Brody}.
