Sustainable Snacking for Kids?

How do you feed two hungry boys with one tired mom and the will to avoid packaging and processing?  Check out my post at The Green Phone Booth today to share your ideas.

I can't seem to comment over on the Green Phone Booth, so I thought I would do it here.

My kids love to snack on nuts: Pistachios, almonds, pecans, walnuts. It is not particularly cheap but it is very healthy.

I also make a big batch of granola every once in a while and that is a good snack also.

But raw fruit is huge in our house.

In winter, cheese and crackers are another favorite along with yogurt.

Also, they will often ask if they can eat last night's leftovers for a snack....

They are both major athletes so they eat a lot and are skinny to the point of scrawny so leftovers are fair game too....

I don't have kids, but I'm perfectly happy to take some of these ideas for myself (this is really an area I could be better at).

Tory: Nuts are a great idea. I need to invest more in those! Leftovers are game in our house too but I also need to get in the habit of making larger meals so they don't mow through everything before breakfast!

Notherethenwhere: Me too! I can snack all day and can pretty much avoid the packaging but not the sweets. Sigh!
