Re: Snacks for the kids

Love apple wedges and peanut butter. However, there are nearly 100 calories in a tablespoon of peanut butter and then eyeball how many tablespoons you can scoop with an apple. Add it to the 100 cals in the apple and I can easily get a 600-800 calorie snack down. About twice that of a slice of apple pie.

My kids like apple+peanutbutter sandwiches. Which is basically a healthy improvement without bread! Literally grab a slice of an apple, spread some PB on there and top it with another apple slice.
We have been looking into improing their diets so still looking for healthy alternatives to classic snacks.

If the skipper likes them so will the kids.

Really digging reduced fat wheat thins these days. Actually like them better than regular wheat thins.
Fresh veggies and dip - yum (yes, we love those too). And Gold Fish - of course, yum yum! And I agree on the 'reduced fat wheat thins' - they are better than the original to us.

Also, frozen yogurt sticks (which tend to melt and then are just yogurt, but still just as yummy for our guy).
Oh yeah - fresh fruit is a luxury as live-aboards. And frozen 'go-gurt' - I had forgotten about that (thanks for the reminder!).

My kids do love beef jerky - but I had forgotten about the frozen grapes! (Those are delicious!)

There is also beef jerky. Great for long trips!
We also like dried fruit and frozen grapes!
