Hey, there! I’m happy you’re here!
Let’s talk about snacking. It can be hard to make good snacking choices when life is busy, right?
You’re a busy go-getter, bouncing from running errands to play dates for the kids and then on to piano, dance, soccer and that meeting at the kids’ school.
Or maybe you’re chasing a toddler and balancing a newborn between keeping the household smoothly running.
What about work responsibilities? Maybe there’s a day job in there somewhere. Or you work from home. And being a stay-at-home mom is definitely work too!
Add in your other activities, meetings, and schedules for the whole family; things get crazy quick!
SNACKING FOR MORE ENERGY
You need energy to keep up with your kids, work, life! And snacking can be a great way to do that.
If you make good snack choices.
It can be really easy (and delicious) to reach for candy and other junk. But it won’t give you the energy you need. You need quick and easy, grab-and-go snack options!
You’re in luck! I’ve done the work of figuring out what to eat! I’m going to share ten better-for-you, take on-the-go snack options for you AND the kids!

It’s important to me that my family eats a balanced diet, even when we’re really busy. Snacks I can take on-the-go are a must-have in our household. I love that all of those snacks can be made ahead of time, stored in the fridge or cupboard and eaten when hunger strikes.
My kids are impatient and want snacks NOW. By having better-for-you options ready to go, they are more likely to choose better snacks. And they still feel like they get to choose their snacks – not me. It’s much less of a fight when my kids make the choice to eat better snacks.
