Healthy Kids' Snacks You Should Be Eating
While the character on the box may not suck you in, many kid-friendly snacks offer nutrient dense, on-the-go options for adults. From childhood favorites like graham crackers and raisins, to yogurt pouches and juice boxes, these are fun and tasty snacks you can feel good about eating.
Fun and super convenient, mini Babybel 100 percent natural cheeses offer a rich and creamy taste that all ages adore. Ranging from 50 to 70 calories, each flavor delivers 4 to 6 grams of protein and 15 percent of your calcium needs. They're delicious and just the right size for a stand-alone snack. Pair with a piece of fruit or some nuts for added satisfaction.
Siggi's Blueberry Yogurt Tubes
Though created for kids, these tubes offer adults the opportunity to snack on yogurt on the go, mess-free. Kids' yogurts can be laden with sugar and artificial colors and flavors. But at a mere 50 calories, these tubes boast 5 grams of protein and only 5 grams of sugar as well as an ingredient list you can feel good about. Try freezing the tubes for a sweet treat that'll satisfy a craving for ice cream!
GoGo Squeez Fruit & VeggieZ
Another portable package that is shelf-stable to boot (veggies haters, this one's for you). GoGo Squeez offers a range of pouched products from traditional applesauce to these fruit-and-vegetable blends. Each pouch weighs in at 60 to 70 calories and 2 grams of fiber. Pair it with a few tablespoons of nuts or a serving of cheese like Babybel, and you have yourself a well-balanced anytime snack.
Perfect to pack with your lunch, carry in your gym bag, or stash in your office, Sun-Maid's individually portioned raisins are always ready to eat! One of the few dried fruits that is free of added sugars, this childhood snacking staple has just 90 calories and a boatload of nutrients. The natural sugars provide an energetic punch to help you get through the day.
Annie's Organic Honey Grahams
Grab your peanut butter! These slightly sweet cookie-like crackers are what childhood memories are made of. One full graham cracker has 65 calories and a mere 4 grams of sugar. Plus you can break it into four perfect pieces, making a single cracker feel far more satisfying.
Back to Nature Madagascar Vanilla Wafers
When you're craving something sweet, let's be honest: one cookie just won't do. Fortunately, you get to have five of these Back to Nature Madagascar Vanilla Wafers for 150 calories and 9 grams of sugar—not too shabby considering the average coffeehouse cookie contains more than 300 calories and has 27 grams of sugar!
Peeled Snacks Berry Apple Clusters
When you're in the mood to munch, these Berry Apple Clusters may just fit the bill. With 60 calories per 1/4-cup serving, these puffed-dried apples are fun and sweet—perfect for crunching.
Apple & Eve Organic Apple Juice
For those times when water simply won't cut it, a 100 percent juice box—like Apple & Eve Organic Apple Juice—offers you a perfectly portioned solution. At 90 calories per box, there's no added sugar and 1 1/2 servings of fruit to boot.
