Now that the school year is in full swing, schedules are hectic and parents are struggling to find easy snacks for after school, a pre-practice boost, or while running around in the car.

Don’t turn to nutrient-lacking, processed foods. Instead, try these healthy and delicious snacks that are easy to assemble. 

  1. Seasonal fruit with cheese and crackers. Combine some ripe fruit (watermelon is great right now) with your favorite cheese slices and some whole-grain crackers. You’ll get vitamins from the fruit, protein from the cheese, and carbs from the crackers – enough to keep you going until your next meal. 
  2. Bean spread. You can make hummus with chickpeas or a white bean spread with some garlic, rosemary, and lemon juice. Pair this with some celery or carrot sticks for a tasty protein-packed treat. 
  3. Fruit smoothies. Pick one or two fruits and combine with some Greek yogurt and milk (any kind will do). This is a well-balanced snack that’s great for hot days. 
  4. Celery with almond butter and raisins. Enjoy healthy fats, protein and satisfying crunch. 
  5. Your own trail mix. Get creative and assemble your own combination of nuts, dried fruit and a few dark chocolate morsels for a sweet and savory protein snack.

Finding time to create healthy snack options can be challenging and The Pickled Beet is here to help. This month, we’re running a back to school special.
