I keep it simple with things like string cheese, 90 calorie granola bars, fresh fruit, skinny cow bars (when the kids want to feel like they are eating junk). I also keep bags of thos apple dippers and carrot dippers in the house. They are both less than 50 calories and a healthy snack.

i do the same thing with the yogurt in the freezer my son loves that for dessert. i keep a selection of fruit on hands and carrots are the only veggie i have sucess with. i also have a new rule.....if you don't want any of my fruit and veggie offerings then you aren't really hungry. so far its helping to weed out the real hunger

So far I've been trying:

1. Frozen Yogurt tubes? You know those Stoneyfield Farms Yo-Go's or whatever? I freeze them and hand em out like treats. Especially on hot days when the car is 1400 degrees when we get in it. Otherwise they're good for a longer time because they just slowly melt.
2. Cheese- baby belles are a big hit
3. Triscuits and other whole grain crackers
4. NUTS! In a trail mix or just plain.
5. Small bags of popcorn
6. Rice cakes with nut butter in between them like sandwiches. My boys love those.
7. Cereal bars- some are better than others
8. Lara Bars (costco has them for a good price)
9. Squeezeable applesauce. Some brands have carrots and even things like peas in them.

One thing I do when I'm home is take one of those "condiments on ice" boxes. I fill the bottom with ice packs (we don't have an ice maker, but regular ice would be better) and then use the compartments to put in fruits, veggies, crackers, whatever. I take silicone cupcake wrappers and add nut butter or dressing. I leave it out all day, just replacing the ice and fruit when needed. It really encouraged the boys to snack healthy- control their portions, etc. I can show you a picture if you want.

I LOVE my fruit compote. I know it sounds absolutely disgusting but it's REALLY good. All I do is cut up some apples and throw in some raisins and grapes maybe some strawberries and blueberries, really it's whatever fruit you have on hand in a great big bowl add a touch of honey (or agave nectar) and coat it with plain (I prefer vanilla) non fat yogurt and refrigerate. The longer it sits the more the flavors will combine and it's so yummy. I love it too because it's so flexible the only real must is apples, raisins, and yogurt the rest you can play with!

I keep loads of fruit on the kitchen table for the family so when they get the munchies they can just grab a fruit.

We keep pears, apples, clementines(they love these) and grapefruit on the table and the fridge has green and black grapes, baby carrots, grape tomatoes and celery it.

The draw back; we have to go to the store every weekend to get more fruit and veggies(which is a heck of a lot more expensive than the junk food).

This is our year to be our best, feel our best and look our best!

NO I never tried that but I definantly will be throwing some in my freezer tonight. My kids fave fruit is grapes so this should be a great hit. Thank-you! : )

I finally figured out why I'm fat! The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my body says "For extra volume and body". I'm going to start using "Dawn" dish soap. It says " Dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove".

Have you ever tried frozen grapes? Another friend on SP suggested this to me, and I just love it. I measure out 1 cup of grapes and put them in sandwich baggies in the freezer. It makes a great afternoon snack. My boys (ages 8 and 3) are hooked now, too!

I also wanted to mention in my last post and forgot.......

I am in dire need of healthy easy non-complicated snack ideas. Carrots and Celery only go so far in my family....LOL!
I will say we are a very on the go family so grab-N-go snack ideas would be perfect for my household.

Thank-you in advance emoticon
