Now that school is out for the summer, turn those plastic sandwich containers into the perfect on the go snacks for outings to the park, the beach, or on car rides!
My kids’ latest snacking obsession is to create their own on the go snacks or
“snack packs” (as we call them).
These are perfect for a trip to the park, a car ride, or a fun summer outing. You can actually fit a good amount of snacks into those little plastic sandwich containers! They like the independence of choosing what they are going to fill on the go snacks with. I’ve noticed that when my kids pack their own food, they usually eat it all with little to no waste. My only request is that they choose at least 1 fruit, vegetable, or cheese in each pack.
These on the go snacks definitely hold them over with a variety of their favorite foods.
I’ll usually pack a bigger lunch to have later in the afternoon, or we’ll stop for fast food on a long ride. It saves us a bundle on buying snacks while we are out. That is especially nice with five children. They also taste so much fresher than the pre-packaged fruits and cheese that you buy in the produce section at the grocery store. If you need yummy snacks for the adults here are a few great road trip snacks from Men’s Health!
