Summertime (or just plain mom life) often means being on-the-go.  Whether you are traveling or just out all day having fun, the kids are going to want snacks.  And while I applaud those of you who bring fresh fruit and vegetables (pre-cut and stored in a nice container) with you, I find myself struggling to keep that going.  In an effort to stray from the granola bar and goldfish demands, I love bringing these two snacks with me when we are running out the door:

SeaSnax

Organic seaweed, roasted with olive oil and a touch of salt, make this a tasty, healthy treat I feel good about feeding my kids.  I love that there are only three ingredients, and that olive oil is used instead of canola oil.  I had been getting the snack packs at Sprouts until I found that Whole Foods Market carries a much larger selection of snack pack sizes, including large sheets.

Crispy Fruit:  Apple

Freeze-dried fuji apple (approx. 1/2 cup of apple per bag).  One ingredient.  No additives or preservatives.  Need I say more?  While I am partial to the apple version, other options include Asian Pear, Banana, Cantaloupe, Mango, Pineapple and Tangerine.  Available at Whole Foods Market.
