Do you have a house full of snacky kids? What parent doesn't? Here are some easy on-the-go recipes for snacks to satisfy hunger pangs whether you're on the go or just trying to ride it out until dinner.
The Bunky Bag was created by a medical professional/mother to make it easier and more affordable for parents to feed their children safe, healthy and nutritious foods at any given time. Select the best ingredients, mix them and put them into the Bunky Bag. Keep it simple by adding any soft food such as applesauce, oatmeal or yogurt. You can store it in the freezer, ideal for meal planning and perfect for lunch boxes! Our dream is to reinvent “fast food” to create something, with you, that is better, safe and healthier for all families anytime, anywhere. While helping the planet for a safer, cleaner tomorrow for our children’s future. Your nutritious meals, made for any moment.
Every parent knows the list of most dreaded phrases their child can utter while in the car or out and about. No. 1 on the list is probably, "I have to go to the bathroom." Second on the list is, "I'm hungry," especially if said child recently refused to eat the perfectly healthy meal you lovingly prepared and presented at home.
Now you're out of the house with errands to run or hours to drive before you reach your destination, so your only choice is to hit a fast-food restaurant's drive-thru or take a chunk of time out to comb a local grocery store for something they'll eat.
Experienced parents come to understand the importance of having snacks on hand for when their children's munchies hit. The problem is, a lot of the most portable snacks are loaded with sugar and empty calories that "fill them up," but only for a moment. The key when it comes to snacks for your kids is to opt for more nutritional snacks that are full of vitamins, nutrients, and protein, the ingredients that will actually enrich your child's nutritional intake. By doing so, you're allowing their bodies and their brains to grow to their maximum potential.
Luckily, making on-the-go snacks is pretty easy, and the results are way healthier than the store-bought versions. All you need are some reusable food pouches to make storing and transporting snacks easy.
These treats are so sweet, your kids won't even realize that they are healthy for them!
Add two large handfuls of fresh organic baby spinach to a blender with 1/2 cup of orange juice and blend very well - make sure you keep blending until all of the green pieces are gone. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
Melt butter in saucepan. Add the sweet potato and water. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 7-8 minutes. Add peas and spinach and cook for three more minutes. Puree the mixture in a blender to make a smooth consistency. Pour into a snack pouch and refrigerate.
Peel, core and cube apples. Combine all ingredients in large pot, heat on high. Bring to a boil then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes stirring frequently. Add more water as needed. Remove lemon slice at the end of heating time.
Remove from heat and use a potato masher to mash apples to desired consistency. Serve warm or cold, refrigerate leftovers.
