With the longer days, hotter weather and kids home from school, the need for easy ways to eat fruits and veggies become more prevalent. I have two active boys at home, and they are constantly reaching for the snacks. I usually have fresh fruits and veggies cut up and ready to go in the fridge, but between day camps and evening activities, it’s great to have some convenient staples on hand that are portable and easy to throw into a backpack or that make getting dinner on the table easier.
