What's In the Bag?!  (Snack Bag That Is)

What's In the Bag?! (Snack Bag That Is)

My son is in kindergarten, so he doesn’t get a lunch yet, but he does get a snack.  Everyday, he wants the same thing…popcorn.  Fortunately, we buy a healthy option of air popped at Trader Joes, but I had to come up with a few alternatives for variety & thought I’d share.  
Snack:
  • Fruit- bananas, apples, oranges, clementines, cherries, or grapes
  •  Yogurt ‘tubes’-  (choose one high in acidophilis and low in sugar)
  • Carrots sticks with hummus for dipping 
  • Dried fruits (no-sugar)- raisins, apricots, bananas, papaya or mango
  • Trail mix (no-sugar
  • Veggie Booty (Roberts American Gourmet)
  • Organic “Cheese” Crackers by Eco-Planet
  • Organic animal crackers
  • Newman’s Own “oreo” cookies
  • Late July peanut butter crackers
  • Cliff Bars (crunch)
    • Unfortunately, we can’t bring the PB crackers or Cliff Bars to school due to children with allergies to peanuts, but we save these for after school!
Drink:
  • Water (my kids love it, thankfully!)
  • Honest Kids- (juice pouches) comes in Tropical Tango, Goodness Grapeness or Berry, Berry Good Lemonade
  • Apple & Eve All-Natural Apple Juice (box)
  • R.W. Kudsens Spritzers- Lemonade, Red Rasberry or Grape (can- they think it is soda!)
  • Vita Coco Coconut Water (box)-our favorite is pineapple flavor
***A lot of people buy Capri Sun juice pouches “Roaring Waters”…these have high fructose corn syrup in them!
