On-the-go meals for kids

We all know that juggling school and sports practice can leave kids with little time to sit down for a meal, but that doesn't mean their health has to suffer. Whether kids have morning or evening practices, they can spend roughly 10 hours at school. Here are a few quick and easy snacks to give your kids so they don't revert to chowing down a helping of french fries.

Energy bars
There are a ton of energy bars on the market, both good and bad, but they are simple to hand to kids for mid-afternoon or morning snacks. Check the labels for the sugar content as a lot of these bars tend to offer a heaping serving of sweetness.

Fruit and nuts
You can make your own trail mix at home so kids can take it on the go. Consider adding almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, raisins, yogurt-covered peanuts and dried bananas. Keep the sweet and sugary stuff to a minimum and instead pack it with protein-rich ingredients to keep kids full longer.

Cheese sticks
String cheese and sticks are packed with calcium and are a great snack to give kids in their lunches. Make sure they have an insulated bag so the stick stays good throughout the day.
