Sometimes Snacking Trumps Cooking

Sometimes, it seems easier to throw an assortment of “snacks” in our bags than to make our own. Let’s face it. You're busy and don’t always have time to cook or bake. These Snacker boxes are one of my most popular after-school and post- workout snacks. Think of this as your convenient healthy snack bento. The only thing you have to actually assemble is the crackers; but believe me when I tell you that the 60 seconds you are going to spend doing this is well worth it. You get to control the quality and freshness of the ingredients—a must in my book.The SnackerCourtesy of MOMables™’ Recipe StashIngredients:
