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
