Now that summer is in full swing, we're spending lots of time going on adventures with the family. Whether it's a trip to Cedar Point, the Rollercoaster Capital of the World, or a trip to a local park, it seems we're constantly on the go.
When we're out and about, enjoying the gorgeous NE Ohio summers, one thing always rings true: The kids inevitably end up wanting to snack. We don't really eat fast food if I can help it, so we try to keep wholesome, portable snacks on hand so that when hunger strikes, we're prepared.
I'd like to share just a few of my kids' favorite summer snacks. These are tried and true, and they're all super-portable, so they can go wherever the summer takes your family. They're also amazing choices for National Picnic Month!
