Quick and Healthy Snacks for the Whole Family

Snacking just got tastier – and more nutritious – with this amazing array of Cabot’s favorite quick and healthy snacks.

No one knows better than Cabot’s farm families that a workday can often last from sunrise to sunset, and beyond.

At Cabot we understand that busy families with active lives need tasty snacks to keep them fueled and satisfied throughout a long day. Whether it’s a mid-morning pick-me-up, snacks after soccer, or a nutritious nibble for game day tablegating, healthy snacks are a key component of a wholesome diet. No matter what your age or stage in life, proper nutrition can make every day healthier and happier.

“Snacking can play an important role in an overall diet. Healthy snacks that are nutrient dense and made with nutritious ingredients are an important addition to three balanced meals, especially for growing children,” says Cabot R.D. Sara Wing.

We wanted to share some of our favorite healthy snacks from the Cabot recipe archives. These quick and easy family favorites taste great and will keep you satisfied throughout your busy day. Many of them are easy enough to prepare that even the littlest snacker can help in the kitchen, because we believe that you’re never too young to learn healthy snacking habits.

For instance, check out these fun little skewers of yum, Cabot Crazy Bobs. Have your young kitchen helpers make their own healthy power sticks with fruits, veggies and The World’s Best Cheddar!
