 11 snacks that you - and your kids - should avoid, with healthy swaps 
I'm not a big fan of absolutes. I try to steer clear of recommending that we "always" or "never" do something. I also try to avoid using finger-wagging directives like saying that you "should" or "shouldn't" do x, y or z. Still, parents concerned about what they should – or shouldn't – feed their kids often ask for a list of don'ts. And, most often, the nutritional culprits are convenience items: Those easy-to-grab fast food items and packaged snacks that are loaded with refined carbs, added sugar and artificial food dyes, not to mention other questionable ingredients and add-ins that are best avoided. Real, whole food is almost always more nutritious – and often cheaper. Lean proteins, vegetables and fruits (fresh or frozen), nuts and nut butters, for example, can be prepped and divvied up in zip-top bags or reusable containers for homemade "snack packs" that are perfect to pack for lunch or snack time. Less money, more nutrition. Not everyone has the time – or makes the time – to take the extra steps for DIY meal and snack prep. So, if you're in the mode of grab-and-go convenience items, here are 11 foods and drinks to stop packing in your kid's (and your own) lunchbox, with a healthier alternative for each one. Yes, some of the healthier items are pricier, but consider streamlining grocery shopping by cutting back on the unnecessary, not-so-good-for-you stuff, and you can likely even things out, price-wise.

Kids Snacks + Lunch Box Add-Ins 
It’s back-to-school time, which means packing snacks for lunches and after-school practice. Unfortunately, most snacks packs are sugar-laden cookies, gummies, and candy, and even many of the “perceived as healthy” options like granola bars, cereals bars, and crackers are still mostly just sugary white carbs. To help you get the most nutritional bang from kid-friendly snacks, we’re Getting the Skinny with Molly on which snacks actually provide nutrients like calcium, protein, and brain-boosting fats, and which snacks to just steer clear of! Curious about which juice boxes are best? Check out Molly’s Love it, Like it, Hate segment with her top picks!

 Get the Skinny: Yummy for your Kiddie Granola Bar 
Back to school time means the pace picks up, and we don’t always have time for a full breakfast or snack, and often need a quick grab-and-go breakfast, snack, or pre-workout fuel source. Ben McLauchlin of Swerve has you covered, with an oh-so-easy recipe for DIY homemade granola bars that are rich in whole grains and heart smart fats, plus a boost of protein and zero added sugar!
