Anyone with children knows the stampede that occurs whenever the phrase "snack time" is uttered. Children associate snacks with fun, tasty, easy-to-eat foods, but as parents, we know that the very best snacks are all that and more. Snacks, when done right, serve an important purpose--they give our kids a needed boost of energy, whether after a long day of school or during an especially active trip to the playground. While at home with their young sons, Chitnis and Waldman discovered that when you are on the go with little ones, snacks become an important part of the day, nutritionally speaking. Never ones to settle for premade crackers or bags of sugary treats, they used their creativity and love of food to develop wholesome snacks that are easy to pack and simple to make. The result is a collection of inspired recipes that are healthier, tastier, and just right for active families that care about what they eat.
