The Newest Healthy Snacks to Go
When you're on the go and can't stop to eat, what can you do to quiet those growling stomachs without having to drive through and pick up unhealthy food? Pack snack bags with good-for-you grub that will allow you to finish what you need to do without making a food run. There are an almost a dizzying array of snacks on grocery store shelves, and it's hard to find ones that don't include an unhealthy amount of fat, sugar, salt or other yucky preservatives. Stock up on a few delicious kid pleasers and take them along wherever you go. A great place to start is with nutrition bars made just for kids. Clif makes Zbars, which satisfy any cookie craving with flavors like peanut butter, chocolate brownie and caramel apple. The bars have as much calcium as a glass of milk and zero trans fats. Odwalla bars are chewy, gooey snacks that are chock-full of omega-3s. If your kids like to get fruity, replace those sugary fruit rollups with FruitaBu's Organic Smooshed Fruit. In flavors like apple, strawberry and grape, there's nothing artificial in these snacks, which contain a serving of fruit.
