35 Healthy Snack Ideas for Busy Mommas

Last night I was lucky enough to be one of fourteen moms featured in a question and answer chat loop hosted by Kristie Gilmore (@mrs.happygilmore) on Instagram.  Kristie hosts these chats every Sunday night beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST, and they are a great way to connect with other moms for helpful tips, inspiration, and fun!

I asked the question:
Meal planning helps ensure the bulk of our meals are super healthy, but lately I’m struggling to keep my snacks on track! What are your go-to healthy snacks?

All of the ideas below are answers from the amazing ladies who participated in the chat, plus a couple of my own favourites.  I definitely picked up a few new ideas from their suggestions, and hopefully you will too!
