If you're short on time, but want to make sure that your children are still getting the nutrients that they require, here are 6 healthy kid approved snacks to keep your kiddos happy and healthy this summer!

Little J helped me rank these yummy snacks using her personalized grading method...

Organic Slammers Superfood Snack: A++

Topping the list is our absolute favorite--  Organic Slammers Superfood Snack (yes, even us adults like to enjoy kiddie snacks from time to time). These powerful pouches are packed with fruit and are high in antioxidants. They also contain no added sugar and nothing artificial, making it the perfect snack for your little ones.

Note: Little J loved them so much she gave them A++, so that should tell you something...

They come in several tasty flavors:

Awesome: bananas, strawberries, blueberries, beets, acai & amaranth
Epic: mangoes bananas, carrots, orange, greek yogurt, & real vanilla
Chill'n: bananas blueberries, butternut squash, greek yogurt & yumberry

Where to buy: Organic Slammers Superfood Snacks can be purchased at most Target, Publix, HEB, Safeway and Ralph's stores throughout the U.S. View their website to find additional stores where they may be sold.

Kind Bars: A

Kind Bars are both picky eater and mom approved. Plus they're pretty darn healthy. Which basically means they're an A in my book. These bars are chock-full of supergrains and are an excellent source of fiber. As a plus they're low on fat and sugar.

They've got flavors for every palette preference:

Dark Chocolate Chili Almond
Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt
Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio + Antioxidants
Raspberry Cashew and Chia
Almond and Coconut

Where to buy: Kind Bars can be purchased at most chain and local grocery stores. You can also order boxes online.

My Super Snack: A-

Unlike the other snacks listed, Fresh Kids is a monthly subscription bases service, which personally, I find to be even more fun. Because who doesn't love coming home to a box full of goodies a few times a month? Little J clearly does!

For the purposes of this post, Little J tried out the Fresh Kids White Cheddar Popcorn, and of course, as her helper, I felt obligated to try a few bags bites myself. We both LOVED it. The White Cheddar Popcorn is puffed and baked with love, and of course, gluten free and non-GMO. Basically every mother's dream.

They have several other yummy products:

Veggie Straws
Clean and Simple Popcorn
Pretzel Stick Trays
& Little Dipper Hummus

Where to buy: Fresh Kids snacks can be purchased online for a monthly fee. Snack Happy boxes are shipped every 15th of the month, so you can always expect to have some healthy goodies on hand.

Harvest Snaps: B++

If you've ever spent any time in the produce section of any large grocery store, odds are you've seen Harvest Snaps at some point. And it you haven't tried them yet, now is the time to do so. Harvest Snaps are so deliciously healthy it's almost not believable. Harvest Snaps are made with 70% real green peas. They're low in fat and high in protein and fiber.

They also come in several super yummy flavors, including:

Wasabi Ranch
Onion Thyme
Lightly Salted
Black Pepper

Where to buy: Harvest Snaps are available at most major grocery stores throughout the U.S.

Bear Naked Granola: B+

Uncomplicated and delicious, Bear Naked Granola is as versatile as it is tasty. You can eat a handful or two by itself, or mix it into your kiddos yogurt or oatmeal. Since Little J is a lover of breakfast foods, this is one of her favorite oatmeal toppings.

Choose from several delicious mixes:

Bear Naked® Maple-icious Pecan Granola
Bear Naked® Go Bananas... Go Nuts! Granola
Bear Naked® Chocolate Elation Granola
Bear Naked Granola, Sea Salt Caramel Apple

BONUS: If you're dealing with an extremely picky eater, fear not, you can customize your own Bear Naked Granola. That in itself is worthy of a A +, but my kiddo is a tough critic (sorry guys, you're an A in my book)!

Where to buy: Bear Naked Granola can be purchased at most chain and local grocery stores. You can also order it online.

Matt's Munchies: C+

A bit new to the scene, Matt's Munchies premium fruit snacks that are made with pure, wholesome ingredients. Matt's Munchies all contain less than 100 calories per serving, and are perfect for snacking on the go!

They come in nearly a dozen delicious flavors:

Island Mango
Mango Acai
Banana Coconut

Where to buy: Matt's Munchies are sold in healthy food stores across the U.S. To find one near you, visit their website and enter your zipcode. You can also purchase Matt's Munchies directly online.
