It happens more often than we care to admit. You're on your way to soccer practice or out running errands, and your little ones say they're hungry. Of course, you want to get them something to eat — and fast — but you don't want to resort to the drive-through or a candy bar. While there are plenty of healthy homemade snacks [1], this situation requires something you can grab on your way out the door and throw in your purse. From fruit-filled treats to savory finds, these premade snacks are a healthy way to tide kids over when the hunger pangs hit.
