Back to school means new clothes, notebooks, and lunch boxes, and often, more meals eaten on the run. Whether your kid takes the bus, walks to school or is chauffeured by you, he is probably often running late and grabbing a snack on the go. These healthy, portable foods should be on your radar – and they are also great for airplane travel snacks or on a road trip.
Worried about Nutrition?
One of the first things you should seek out is Luckybar, founded by the mother of a picky eater. These tasty bars have more protein than two eggs, so you don’t have to worry about your kid not getting enough healthy food while he grazes.
The bars are a bit sweet for breakfast; the five flavors include Pirate Peanut Butter Chocolate, Cosmic Chocolate Caramel Almond, Chocolate Campfire, Crazy Coconut and Strawberry Sandcastles, but they are certainly healthier than a candy bar or sugary granola bar.
Need a Drink?
Juicy Juice has added organic juices to its juice box line. The organic flavors are limited to apple or fruit punch, which is mainly apple with some pear, grape, and orange. The organic juice boxes are in the tiny judgmente size, which is really enough juice for one serving. There are also new Splashers, juice pouches with water added so there is 50 % less sugar, but no nasty stuff like high fructose corn syrup. The berry lemonade and peach mango are thirst quenching without all the juice calories, and all four flavors have 100% of the daily requirement for Vitamin C.
