Gimme all the Snacks!
It is hotter than H-E-double hockey sticks down here in Texas, y’all. The only activity I can do with my kids outside is go to the neighborhood pool. It is too hot to do anything else! My kids work up quite the appetite during an afternoon of swimming. I have compiled a quick list of what I consider the perfect pool-side snacks for your kids this summer. After a lot of trial and error, here is what I have come up with.
Pouches aren’t just for baby food anymore. From apple sauce to yogurt and everything in between, the world of pouches has really come a long way in the last few years. It’s easy to eat, easy to clean up, and the kids don’t even have to wash their hands to eat it! It is always a go-to pool snack for us.
Not all fruit is created equal when it comes to pool side perfection. Watermelon is the absolute best pool side summer treat. Grapes are also good. Cuties (mandarin oranges) are a winner every time. These are just a few of our favorites. They are easy to transport. They are easy for the kids to eat themselves. Another bonus: it’s fruit…they can eat as much as they want and you don’t have to feel guilty about it.
Pre-Packaged Goodies from the Grocery Store…
It is getting easier to find healthy snacks at the grocery that are individually pre-packaged these days. As a mom of 3 kids under the age of 5, I need all the convenience I can get. We love Made Good products. They have granola bars, soft cookie bites, and crispy rice treats. My kids also love beef/turkey sticks. These are full of protein and great for hungry swimmers. I encourage you to peruse the snack aisle at your local grocery store. It seems like there is something new to try every week!
Let’s Talk Containers.
I just recently purchase these Bentgo containers. Let me tell you something…these are 100% worth the money. Where have these been all my life?! Each kid gets their own container. I pack them all with the same snacks. No one fights over food. They are perfectly content with their little boxes of snacks packed with love. I will link these containers here.
There is nothing worse than a hangry kid. Mom tip: Always over-pack the snacks. It is better to have too many than not enough. I hope these perfect pool-side snacks for your kids this summer will make your days in the sun a little easier. Have fun. Stay hydrated! Happy Summer!
