Stock Up On Spring Snacks to Fuel Your Kid’s Outdoor Activities

Posted by

After a long day of hiking, park or pool playtime, or a game of football in the fields, there's nothing better than a great snack to refuel your kid’s tired body.

But instead of turning to a bag of chips or the same old candy, consider indulging in one of these great snacks that are perfect for ‘on the go’.

We put together a few delicious and nourishing springtime snack ideas:

1. Weaver's Salted Corn Chips with Flax Seed

This is a fun and light, yet truly satisfying snack that’s easy to eat any time hunger strikes.

Weaver's Salted Corn Chips with Flax Seed are a crunchy snack baked perfectly and offering a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Kids will love the savory flavors and crunchiness of this snack!


2. Weaver's Pretzel Balls

Like many of us, you may have loved salted pretzel balls as a kid, and feel a bit of nostalgia when you eat them.

Treat your own kids to these bite size pretzel balls, perfectly salted and crunchy, great on their own or in a trail mix.


3.Land of the Gummies Fruit Snacks

Land of the Gummies® Fruit Snacks are a wonderful go to healthy treat that will satisfy your kid’s sweet craving. With these fruit snacks, you can give your kids a tasty serving of fruit that they can take anywhere with them, without having to worry about preparing and packing fresh fruit.

Made with real fruit juice, these super flavorful gummies are high in antioxidant vitamins C & E, and provide 100% vitamin C daily value per serving.

For an added treat, surprise your kids with a packet of Land of the Gummies® Emoji Fruit Snack Gummies – they come in all the fun shapes and assorted fruit flavors of orange, lemon, green apple, fruit punch, cherry and blue raspberry.

4.Weaver's Pepperoni Snack Sticks

Your kid is active and burns a lot of energy, so, naturally, you want him or her to get an adequate amount of protein. If your kid eats meat, a great way to add nutrients while avoiding sugar is with meat sticks. Kids tend to like them more than jerky, since they are softer, less chewy, and overall easier to eat.

Easy to pack and even easier to eat, a few pieces of meat sticks are just what your adventurous kid needs to refuel.

Check out more flavors such as Weaver’s Beef Sticks with nacho, sweet & spicy, or hot & spicy.


5. Dried Plantain Chips

Pacific Sea Salt coated plantain chips are amazingly tasty, crunchy and actually good for you and your kids. They are portable and pair well with many other foods. For instance, add them to your kid’s yogurt for added crunchiness and to enhance the yogurt flavor.

In addition to being yummy, dehydrated plantain chips are also a great source of resistant starch, which has many benefits. They certainly make an ideal snack for on the go and a wonderful addition to your children’s lunch boxes.


6. Bunny Jump Rope

Since it’s Easter time, we wanted to include a treat that will surely be appreciated by your kids!

Pack some of the Hilco candy toys for Easter – it will satisfy your kid’s sweet tooth and allow for some fun time in the sun. This Hilco product comes with a high quality 6 ft. bunny hop jump rope and Jump Rope Bunny Handles filled with candy egg tarts.

Whether you are looking for something sweet or savory, why settle for regular or unhealthy snacks, when at Weaver Nut Sweets & Snacks you’ll find a wide variety of healthy, delicious snacks that will please everyone’s palate, and are also easy to pack and enjoy anywhere.

Come on over and stock up on yummy pretzel balls, emoji fruit snacks, and other snacks today.
