30 Portable Snacks for Kids on the Go


Let’s face it, life is busy and we are often on the go with our kids. With some planning we can guarantee that children still have nutritional snacks even through our business of grocery runs, sports practices, and carpool. Check out this list from the book Toddler 411, for 30 relatively portable options for you and your kids on the go. (These snacks are recommended for toddlers and older, however, snacks with dried fruit or whole nuts are a choking hazard and only intended for children ages three and up.)
