Healthy Snacks For Summer Camp
July 6, 2010 18 Comments
Snack Girl's kids started summer camp this week. The camp requested that I pack TWO snacks per day (as well as lunch) to keep my little ones from getting peckish.
I am not the only one with this problem. Yesterday, Katherine reached out to us on FaceBook:
I am seeking everyone's advice: I pack lunches for my 3 daughters (ages 6, 13 and 17) to take to camp everyday. I need ideas beyond the sandwich. *No nut products allowed and they are kept refrigerated. Thanks!!!
My kids are 6 and 3 years old and I have to come up with 20 snacks this week! Yikes! (this freaks ME out and I'm Snack Girl!)
Just an aside, I'm not really sure that my 6 year old needs 2 snacks per day. Any thoughts on this?
Here is the list I came up with for myself and Katherine (in no particular order). Please add your suggestions in the comment section below.
- Cheese Stick and 100% whole grain crackers like Triscuit and Doctor Kracker
- Veggies and Dip
- Clif Kids Review
- There is GoGo squeeZ and other "no sugar added" packaged apple sauces that don't contain artificial sweetener.
Whole Foods Mostly In Season
Strawberries Prevent Cancer
Hard Boiled Egg
Energy Bar Recipe
Buttermilk Banana Bread
and you can make your own granola WITHOUT nuts - just don't add them DIY Cereal
Please share your snack ideas for camp below.
