Healthy Lunchbox Snack Ideas

It can be challenging trying to find nutritious snack foods that your child will enjoy.  Especially when school is in session, and you’re not present to make sure that he or she ends up eating what you packed.  Here are some great snack foods that Emma and I recently had the opportunity to try, and I think they all make great additions to bagged lunches.

The same raisins I enjoyed as a kid are a treat for my daughter today.  This is one healthy fruit snack that she absolutely loves to munch on, and I’m happy to let her.

 

Kashi TLC Cereal Bars

It sounds like a breakfast option, but this is one variety of cereal bars that actually taste like a cookie.  These are so good, you forget they’re also good for you.  These baked goodies have a blend of real fruit and 7 Whole Grains with 3g of fiber and 2g of protein per serving.

Another Sun-Maid favorite, Fruit Bits are great mixed into a cake or cookie batters for a nice touch of all-natural sweetness.  I also love these over salads.

Oh my, these are heavenly.  It’s a rather dry cookie and makes lots of crumbs that you will want to lick off of your plate.  Seriously, they are that good!  My little one didn’t really take to them, but I had no problem eating the entire bag.

Stretch Island Fruit

We tried both the Original Fruit Strips as well as the All-Natural Smoooshed Rolls.  No artificial flavors here, and they are delicious treats that everyone in our family will reach for.

 

No compensation was received for this post.  I was sent the samples to try so that I could provide my honest opinion.

  4. My daughter has really started to love raisins. I have never tried chocolate covered raisins. I guess I need to give them a try:) Hope you had a great holiday weekend.

  5. These are some great ideas! I'm a teacher and I'm regularly horrified at what crap/junk the kids bring to school for snack. I'm a big fan of yogurt-covered pretzels right now for myself :)
