Do You Take Healthy Snacks With You When You Head Out?

I have learned a thing or two as a mom, and one lesson learned the hard way is the importance of snacks. I often need a little pick-me-up as much as my girls. I have learned to keep energy bars, nuts, and dried fruit stashed in my car and to pick up a piece of fruit to put in my purse on my way out the door. You never know when you will be hit with a snack attack.

What about you . . .

No matter what, if I know I will not be eating a meal at my place, I always plan AHEAD and take it with me! I always know where and when I will be going places (I know, I don't live on the edge, how boring! haha) and always bring things accordingly! Gotta love GLAD wear!

if i'm going to be out of the house for lunch, i'm more inclined to pack a lunch then spend $ buying something not as nutritional. i also pack snacks if i'm going to be out all afternoon.

If I think of it, I try to take an apple, carrot sticks, cereal bars, almonds and water with me while I'm on the go if I know Im going to be out for any length of time.

It depends. When I work early in the morning, I usually try to pack a bag full of healthy cereal to munch on in the car and an apple so I don't get vending machine food. Otherwise, I don't usually pack snacks along with me. If I know I'm going somewhere with no healthy options, I tend to pack a bagfull of snacks or a meal so I have something to eat.

Yup. Hypoglycaemia is always a great excuse to have snacks around. ;)

I have almonds or an apple with me prettymuch all the time, as well as water. I turn into evil Mr. Hyde when I'm hungry so I need to have my snacks!

I always keep snacks at work, but when I'm out and about I'm pretty goal-oriented and don't think about food. I just eat something before I leave.
Everyday I take something healthy to meet my two snack a day quota.

depends on where i'm going and how long i'll be away from home. I love granola bars... but if I'm going on a long car ride (3 hours or more) i like carrots and apples.

i pretty much know what to expect when i leave the house. if i'll need packed lunch, i'll pack one, otherwise i don't snack while away. i have this strange thing - i eat every 4 hours at home, but if i'm out, i can survive without any hunger for 10 and not even notice it.

I usually have something with me if I know I am going to be away from home all day, because 1. It's healthier, and 2. It's cheaper! I always have my bottle of water with me, too, so usually there is no need to buy any unhealthy stuff from vending machines or kiosks.

With food allergies I really have to be prepared when I am out of the home. I always have a spare Larabar in my bag.

I put 2 Luna-mini in my bag - Sometimes all it takes is just one bar for me to fight off the huger. Not only does it taste good and it is a lot healthier than a bag of chips or french fries that you get at the shopping mall.

If I know I'll be out all day and will be getting hungry, I usually try to have something from home in my bags so I can snack. Beyond that, I don't plan ahead mosto f the time.
