If your kids are off to day camp this summer, and you’re wondering what snacks to send them with, then you’re in the right place! From snack bentos to homemade chips and crackers, there is something here for everyone!
Just because school is out doesn’t mean you’re done packing healthy foods for your kids. Most all-day and half-day summer camps ask for a snack sent from home.
Plus “mini bentos” are usually easier for little hands to open, and faster than ripping open multiple sealed store-bought packages!
Snack Packing Tips for Camp
Remember to include an ice pack, or freeze more perishable items (like yogurt, meats, and cheese) the night before, so they stay fresh in the summer heat and thaw by snack time! You can even freeze guacamole and hummus. By freezing, it acts as an ice pack for the rest of the snack! Be sure to send a drink as well! Water in a reusable (insulated) water bottle is your best option for staying hydrated and healthy!
