Do you ever find yourself running out the door and frantically tossing snacks into your purse for your littles while you’re out? SAME! Do you ever struggle finding kid-friendly on the go snack ideas that you trust and feel good about? I’ve been there! If there’s one thing motherhood has taught me, it’s to always have snacks, and keep them readily available, ha! 



I try to keep my on the go snack ideas for the boys healthy and free of any junk I don’t want them filling up on. It can be a challenge to find snacks you feel confident about, however, over the years I’ve discovered several great finds that I always stay stocked up on.

Reminder – GIVE YOURSELF GRACE. If it’s a priority for your littles to only ever eat supernatural, all-organic, never processed food and that’s what brings you joy to invest time into, you go for it! But it’s also okay to have a little balance in life. It’s okay to some days crush the HEALTHY game and some days allow for 3 packs of goldfish in survival mode.

I wanted to make sure I got feedback from y’all on your favorite on the go snacks ideas for your kids, so don’t miss that below! And if you want to learn all my hacks for meal planning and getting dinner on the table without all the stress, snag your copy of my meal planning ebook HERE! 

12 Kid-Friendly On the Go Snack Ideas for the Busy Mom by Alabama Life + Style Blogger, Heather Brown // My Life Well Loved

My Favorite On The Go Snack Ideas:

1 // Safe + Fair Granola – We love the blueberry cinnamon granola and birthday cake popcorn. Use my code WELLLOVED10 for 10% off. 

2 // Applesauce Pouches – Go for the sugar-free or unsweetened options that don’t contain a ton of extra sugar. 

3 // Kodiak Cakes Bear Bites – Leyton loves these for a sweet treat. And they’re not loaded with bad ingredients. The boys also love their frozen waffles as well. Use my code HEATHERBROWN20 for 20% off.

4 // Nuts – I love to buy my nuts from Aldi because of their great prices. Prep ahead of time and fill individual baggies so they’re ready to go when you need them. 

5 // Veggie Straws – Always a hit with both my boys! The small bags are the perfect portion size. 

6 // Cheese + Fruit – When you meal prep for the week, portion out small containers of cut-up cheese and fruits to grab for your littles when you’re in a pinch. Bananas, apples, oranges, and grapes are the boy’s favorites. 

7 // Yogurt – There are so many whole milk yogurt options that come in easy on the go packaging! We get the moo tubes from Aldi!

8 // Peanut Butter Crackers– I’m always reaching for these to throw in my bag when I’m out with the boys. 

9 // Chomp Beef Sticks – A high protein snack will keep them full until the next meal. Keep an eye out for these on your next Costco run! Finn loves these and the Lorissa’s Kitchen Jerky.

10 // Animal Crackers and Peanut Butter – This is a go-to for the boys. Perfect afternoon snack or to pack for a day at the pool or the park.
