Healthy Snack Ideas

Keep your resolutions going and snack smart with these 20 Healthy Snack Ideas!


Snacking can be really HARD.

I constantly get asked what I snack on, bring with me on-the-go, or eat while in a pinch. To be honest, I try not to snack that much. I try to eat foods that fill me up and give me energy to get through the day, but life doesn’t always go as planned, and sometimes we get hungry pre-meal! Whether you are looking for snacks to help you make smarter choices, pack in your kids lunch box, or just have around so you don’t resort to the vending machine, these 20 snack ideas have you covered!

Apple Nachos & Kid-Friendly Apple Snacks

Although I’m not giving up on Summer JUST yet, the school year is beginning and that means BRAIN FOOD. Brain food along with easy nutritious snacks, crock-pot, make ahead, and 20-minute meals.

The past two week’s of my Healthy Food Friday series with American Express have been focused around all things noted above. No-Bake Powerbites and Mason Jar Lunches, and now featuring the almost in-season, super health fruit… APPLES.
Apple Nachos & Kid-Friendly Apple Snacks
Let’s talk about an easy breezy snack that any member of your family will love. APPLE DESSERT NACHOS. For starters, you can completely customize these. You need apples of course, and then toppings of choice. This is the perfect late night healthy treat, or the perfect after school snack fuel to keep your family going for the rest of the evening.
