20 Easy Grab and Go Homemade Snacks

Sometimes it feels like we are constantly on the go. And the kids are always hungry. I think they could eat all day long if we let them. Of course there are plenty of snack foods that we can purchase and the girls can grab on the way out the door, but I also like to have homemade snacks that we can make together. 

So, I’ve looked around and gathered up 20 easy to make grab and go snacks that we can have on hand for when the need for energy comes along.

  1. Great ideas! I’m definitely a “grab and go” person and find myself pulling into fast food or hitting vending machines more than I should. I’ll have to make some of these!

  2. Holy moly you are amazing. These look fantastic and the boys are always looking for a new snack for school and playdates.

  3. This is a great list of snacks. There are a number of them that I would fix for my kids & I.

  4. Wow, so many healthy options! I love cashews, but never bake or cook with them for some reason. I’ll have to pin these yummy snacks to my snacking board!

  5. LOVE grab and go snacks, because as you said, kids are tiny bottomless pits. We’re big fruit eaters and my purse always has something healthy in it that the kids can nibble.
