Healthy Snacks for Kids

“MOM!! Can I have a snack?”

It’s safe to say that we’ve heard this a thousand times already. During the summer my kids have the appetites of grown men….they eat and eat and eat. It seems as though they aren’t ever hungry enough for a meal. These guys prefer to snack all day, so I’ve rounded up some NEW healthy summer snacks for kids.

In an effort to make sure that we are eating healthy(er) snacks (because let’s face it, I’m not going to argue with them all summer about food) we are sticking to some tried and true snacks, a few favorites and some new snacks that we are eager to try.

Maybe this healthy summer snack list can help you navigate the food demands and enjoy the best summer ever as you cross items off of your bucket list or hit the road on a family staycation.

These snacks are a summer must have!

More than Water

Splendor Water

Splendor Water is the only water with naturally present colloidal gold and silver. It is perfectly balanced with natural electrolytes to optimize hydration, naturally pure with nothing added, removed, or altered. SPLENDOR water ranks among the top 10 waters in the world for lowest Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), considered the gold standard measurement of a water’s purity. High TDS waters often have a strong “taste,” while low TDS ensures a smoother finish, making SPLENDOR the perfect water to pair with any food. More about wellness and benefits here.

Splendor Water is also Rainforest Alliance certified and is the first company in Latin America to ensure that their bottles are sourced from 100% recycled plastic (rPET), and are committed to reusing their own materials. They are also committed to giving back 1% of their gross sales to organizations that are bettering our environment and supporting the people of Ecuador. Additional information on their pledge to sustainability can be found here.

Gen Z Water

Gen Z sells beautifully designed reusable aluminum bottles speaking to a generation all about saving the planet….and the best part…it comes with FREE flavorless, transparent liquid!

At GEN Z, we believe happiness is a human right – and being able to drink water sustainably is a big part of everyone’s well-being. That’s why GEN Z is committed to ditching the wasteful, harmful plastic and using reusable, infinitely recyclable aluminum bottles instead. And we get it, one measly (albeit wonderful and good-humored) water company can’t solve all the plastic problems of the world – so the company is keeping its mission simple and realistic: to be the better option for all the folks out there who, together, can. The folks behind GEN Z (including a team of Zoomers themselves) believe that flavorless, transparent liquid should be packaged in sustainable aluminum bottles that can be resealed, refilled, and recycled – keeping water plain and simple for generations to come.

While we could easily fill up a few pages on the pitfalls of plastic, we’ll save you the time and energy. It’s becoming common knowledge how harmful plastic can be for Mother Earth, her landfills, and the critters (the critters GEN Z loves so much, it devoted the bottle designs to them)!
