A few tips to swapping out snacks for kids!

Motts to Go (8)

With the New Year upon us many families are making the change to include healthier snack options for their entire family! While we have been working hard on giving our kids different snacks we have started cutting out more sugary snacks…. but that doesn’t mean we have to completely cut out all snacks that taste good (and sweet!)

The New Year brings on a TON of activities for my kids, even though it’s winter and cold we still are running around I make sure to have plenty of snacks on hand for all three of my kids!

One of the easiest snacks to have on hand is Mott’s® Snack & Go! These applesauce pouches are easy to grab and put in the kids activity bags. From Ballet to Snowboarding they are great nutritious snacks.

Sarah loves to have Mott’s® Snack & Go in her school lunches and after school snacks. Each Snack & Go has 40 calories and no fat with only 8 grams of sugar.


What to Swap:

  • Sugar cupcakes/bars
  • candy
  • breakfast pastries

Remember Applesauce is naturally sweetened from the apples! Kids will get a kick out of Mott’s® Snack & Go and wont be asking for those sugar pastries anymore (or at least less often).

  1. I am always looking for new and healthy snacks for my little grandson. He is the snack king! I think he would really like these.

  2. this is so important, too much junkfood and sugar in things not only kids eat but adults too. This year’s new years resolution has been to cut down on sugar and carbs, we already all feel so much better.

  3. my daughter’s favorite snack is apple sauce. We like the one that has less sugar, i think she likes the texture. my 6 month old loves it too!

  4. I love that these are easy enough for my two year old to manage on his own. Plus he gets a bit of fiber and vitamins that he wouldn’t get with a cookie.

  5. The only treats that I give our 8 yr old daughter are the mini Quaker Chewy Bars, or snack size fruit chewy (fruit by the foot/roll up, etc).

    In addition, she will either hace a whole cucumber, or whole carrot, too.

  6. I pack these in my son’s lunch box for preschool. He can’t seem to get enough of them! He always asks for it.
