YMCA camp promises action-packed and adventure-filled experiences, which means your child will need the proper nutrients to power through their busy summer days. As we gear up for an exciting summer camp season, we’ve ‘cooked up’ some healthy food options for you to consider when packing your child’s summer camp snacks and lunches.
If you’re looking to pack a healthy meal for your camper, you may want to consider these easy-to-pack options:
- Fresh fruit
- Greek yogurt
- Nut-free granola
If you’d like to include a sweet treat in your child’s lunch, consider picking one special day each week to include a sweet surprise. For additional healthy snack options, check out this great article, courtesy of MOMables.com.
- Sandwich kabobs
- Avocado chicken salad
- Whole wheat waffle sandwich
- Hummus and pita bread
- DIY Lunchables
