Fun & Healthy Summer Snacks for Kids On the Go!

This content is sponsored by good2grow, but the opinions are all our own!


Summer time is here, and that means everyone is ON THE GO! Whether it’s running to camps and activities, road-tripping on a family adventure, or headed to the lake for weekends, this season is a time for summer snacks and meals that are easy to create and easy to eat.

We all know how important it is to refuel and hydrate our kiddos in the summer time. Which is why we love good2grow drinks! As a fan of the fun, character-themed juices, I was excited to see they now offer milk. It’s a fun way to get your kids hydrated, especially in the car, since they are re-closable and even reusable!

Plus, good2grow milk is USDA Certified Organic and packed with 8g of protein, and is a good source of Vitamins A & D. There are no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives either. In fun flavors like strawberry and chocolate, my kids love this for a quick after-activity drink in the car or a fun addition to their travel snacks. 

Keeping Mess Minimal

Snacks in the car can be messy, but not with the right supplies! Here’s our tips and supplies to limit mess:

Supplies needed:

  • Reusable snack pouches (or plastic baggies)
  • Baby wipes or other hand wipes (to keep little hands clean!)

  • Old towel (in case of a big mess)
