What makes a good snack? Generally, a snack is a smaller portion than a regular meal and eaten in between meals, such as a mid-morning snack or an after-school snack. Snacking has continued to grow more popular in the U.S. since the 1900s. In fact, in the U.S., one study found that the majority of consumers snack more than once during the day, and that snacks make up 50 percent of all dining occasions.

Part of what makes these snacks so great for your family is how quick they are to make or prep the night before! These snacks are hand-selected for their ease, meaning your little helpers can join in on the fun tradition of prepping them with you. Want to try a few of our easiest recipes?
