20 Packable Snacks that Don't Need a Cooler.
Spending just a few minutes ahead of time to pack snacks and drinks as you head out of the house can save you a ton of money. I mean, a TON of money! I keep a list of packable snacks right on my fridge so I don’t even have to think about it.
It’s important to me to always keep snacks and drinks with me, because if I don’t have them on me, then I’ll buy them out. And that’s crazy expensive.
Think about the last month… How many times did you grab a bottle of water at the grocery store or stop by the drive thru because you were hungry? Grabbed a bag of trail mix at the gas station? Think about how much that adds up to in a year! You just snacked your way out of a weekend at the beach!
Need some ideas? Here’s what's on my list. These foods don't usually require refrigeration and can be thrown in a purse or a diaper bag.
Don’t forget to make sure that the food is age appropriate to the child to avoid a choking hazard. You can read more about foods to avoid under the age of 4 here.
- Juice like Mott’s® new cherry apple juice
- Mott's® applesauce squeeze pouches
- Mott's® fruit snacks
- Carrot sticks
- Granola bars
- Trail mix
- Almonds or peanuts
- Beef jerky
- Dry cereal
- Dried fruit (raisin, banana, apple, and pineapple)
- Dark chocolate
- Crackers and peanut butter
- Pre-packaged tuna or chicken salad with crackers
These snack ideas are great for kids or adults. The idea is to pay just a fraction of the price by spending a few minutes thinking ahead. When you do that, you save time and a whole lot of money! Plus you avoid super cranky kids and “hangry” adults. That’s a win/win/win.
And these aren't just great for snacks. These can round out any mealtime at your house perfectly. We're having chicken tenders, with Mott's® Cherry Apple Juice tonight and carrot sticks.
