Keeping emergency snacks on hand is key during a busy summer full of tasty temptations. But not all guilt-free snacks are travel-friendly in high temps (sorry, No Sugar Added Fudgsicles!). Check out HG's best on-the-go summer snacks... 
FRUITS & FREEZE-DRIED FRUITS

Look for fruits that are firm and not too juicy (so they won't get squished in your bag or be messy to eat!), and seek out ones that don't require a lot of complicated peeling or deseeding. Here are a few of our favorite fruity picks...

Crispy Green Crispy Fruit
(1 bag = 35 - 55 calories, 0g fat, 8 - 13g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber -- PointsPlus® value 1*)

Apples (Fujis are our FAVORITES!)
(1 medium apple = 72 calories, <0.5g fat, 19g carbs, 3g fiber -- PointsPlus® value 0*)

Sensible Foods Crunch Dried Fruit
(1 bag = 70 - 84 calories, 0g fat, 18 - 19g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber -- PointsPlus® value 2*)

Gerber Graduates Mini Fruits
(1/4 cup = 25 calories, 0g fat, 6g carbs, 1g fiber -- PointsPlus® value 1*)
Note: There are approximately 4 servings per bag.

HG Tip! Pack your produce pal in a small sealable baggie -- that way you can easily store the core or peel if you can't get to a trashcan right away.
