Easy Snack Options for Busy Families

By Andi Champion, Marketing Manager, CHEF

Between work, family time, and errands it can be hard to make time for healthy food choices. For families on the go, it may seem easier to grab something from the vending machine when it comes to snack time. These snacks are often processed and contain added sugar, sodium, or fats. Instead, we’ve put together a list of wholesome, simple snack recipes your family can enjoy. Prep these on a Sunday and enjoy them throughout the week when you get a snack attack. 

Trail Mix: Skip the store-bought version and try making your own trail mix at home. Our recipe uses wholesome ingredients that don’t contain all of the extra added sugar, salt, or fats that premade versions include.

Oatmeal Cinnamon Protein Bites: These naturally sweet bite-sized snacks are packed with protein to keep you fueled until your next meal. Prep them on a Sunday and enjoy them throughout the week as a quick snack option. They can last in the refrigerator up to seven days.

Grapes with Lemony Yogurt Sauce: Grapes, protein-rich Greek yogurt, and zesty lemon…what’s not to love? This tasty treat is the perfect refreshing snack to help you cool down on a hot summer day.

Ranchy Dip: With only six ingredients (most of which you might already have in your pantry), you couldn’t ask for a simpler snack option than our Ranchy Dip! Instead of traditional Ranch dressing, our version uses lighter ingredients such as Greek yogurt and dried herbs to create a fresh and flavorful recipe your family is sure to enjoy.
