Summer is here! That means your kids are outside playing more and are looking for snacks to take to the park or on road trips, bus trips, camping trips or any other trips you might have planned. Your best options will be full of healthy fats and proteins, not processed carbs—so your kids will have plenty of energy for non-stop playing and summertime fun. If your kids have a sweet tooth, berries also make great snacks and treats. Berries are excellent sources of antioxidants and berries contain less sugar than most fruits do.
Frozen berries are also a great option for blending in smoothies, making popsicles or just popping in your mouth on a hot day. Get some berries at the farmer’s market and then just spread them out on a rimmed baking sheet, pop them into the freezer until they’re completely frozen through (that usually takes a few hours), then stash them in a zip-loc freezer bag.
