While they say it's the most important meal of the day, truth be told — there isn't always time to sit down and eat a wholesome breakfast. Here are some traveling snacks that your child can eat on the go.
- Horizon Organic Single-Serve Milk. Retailing for around $1.50 each, these 8 oz. individual milk boxes provide your child calcium, vitamin D, and 8 g. of protein. Since they are ultrapasteurized and packaged in aseptic containers, the milk can be stored at room temperature up to its expiration date.
- Stonyfield Farm's YoKids Sqeezers. These tubes of organic yogurt are 60 calories per serving, have 25 percent less sugar than other yogurt brands, and contain six active cultures that help promote good digestion. Available in cherry, berry, and strawberry flavors, boxes are $4 and contain 8 single servings.
- EnviroKidz Organic Crispy Rice Bars. These low-fat, low-sodium 1-oz. bars are made from organic brown rice flower. A box of six costs $3 and 1 percent of all EnviroKidz sales are donated annually to endangered species, habitat conservation, and environmental education for kids.
