Hi Everyone!  We’ve taken our Weekly Favorites with Monica J and brought it to Charleston, SC for Lowcountry Live.  I’m so excited to share some of my favorite snacks for kids, which are healthier options that will keep kids snacking and parents smiling.  These are the snacks that I presented on Lowcountry Live on August 22nd.  This post comes just in time for the Back to School season when parents are looking for snacks that are easy to take on the go, add to the lunch box and also have a little fun in the kitchen. Watch So Family on Lowcountry Live below.  Enjoy!

Please find all of the snacks below with information on where to purchase and on some of the ingredients.  You can watch new Weekly Favorites with Monica J videos every Wednesday right here on So Family.
