EASY Summer Pool Snacks

Find some great and EASY summer pool snacks to take with you this summer!

Cookware, Pots/Pants, etc. You’ll Need

Here is a list of what you’ll need to prepare this recipe:

It is pool season!!!  I have been looking forward to going to the pool since the beginning of winter.  Unfortunately, we aren’t lucky enough to have one in our back yard, but we do have a neighborhood pool.  The older my girls get, the more time we spend there during the summer.  It is so much fun but getting there can be a hassle.  There are a million things to bring with us and one of those must haves is FOOD!

Kids burn a ton of calories when they are playing in the water and in return eat a lot of food.  I’m a little more lackadaisical when it comes down to what types of food we take with us.  I want things that are easy to pack and individually wrapped.  I don’t like the wet little hands digging into the community bag of chips…but that’s just me!   Here are some of our easy pool snacks options:

  • Fruit (bananas, apples, grapes)

  • Granola Bars

  • Crackers and chips (pack in small containers for each individual)

  • Applesauce Pouches

  • Go-Gurt Yogurt Sticks (freeze before heading to the pool)

  • Dried Fruit

  • Nuts

  • Granola Yogurt Bites (sweet but good source of some protein)

  • Nutella and GO! Snack

  • Fruit Leather or Snacks

  • Cheese sticks (freeze and they will be perfect when the kids are ready to eat them)

  • Dried fruit

  • Popcorn (my favorite is Skinny Pop)

  • Fruit Cups

  • Jif To Go with apple slices, crackers or carrots

Some of these items can be a little pricey so you could always substitute homemade items (like granola bars) or pre-package items (like popcorn) in plastic bags or reusable containers.   I have found that the Dollar Store has a good selection of inexpensive food storage.  (For more suggestions, check out our post on containers.)

Having easy food options will make your summer life a little easier!
