Little Cooking or No Cooking Snack Ideas

Snacks can be simple things and when I have a snack attack, these are some of the first things I reach for.

Veggies and hummus – Portion out snack sizes for even easier snacking.

Fruit- Apples, pears, bananas, strawberries, cherries, grapes, mangoes, anything you can think of! Mix them into a smoothie with some oat milk or eat them fresh. Fruit was always a free snack when I was growing up.

Square of dark chocolate – Okay, kids probably won’t reach for this one, but you need a snack too!
