We all have a good idea of what we’re packing for our kids to wear at camp, but what about special treats for them to eat at camp?
Sure, chips and gummy worms work, but we think treats like pickles, Gefen soups, and Fruit Patches make for a way more exciting time!
We’ve put together a list of AMAZING snack ideas to send with your kids to camp in a few weeks.
The only problem? All the other kids will want what your kid is eating (so pack extra!).
A true classic that ALL kids love, Gefen soups are kid friendly, perfect for travel, and come with a convenient spork (spoon-fork). Just add hot water and enjoy!
Looking for a more wholesome, high-energy snack your kids can enjoy between all the camp activity? Gefen makes honey-flavored granola bars, and now a new flavor, “Peanut Butter”! Just make sure to verify your camp’s nut policy before sending.
Perfectly chocolatey, conveniently packed, and oh-so delicious. These are the perfect bring-along snack for every now and then when your kid wants a chocolate crisp indulgence.
For our vanilla lovers out there, Gefen also makes their adorable mini wafers with “Vanilla-coconut flavored cream.”
What kid doesn’t like fruit punch? For a hydrating pick-me-up during their day, pack them some of Gefen’s punch. What we love about Gefen’s Fruit Punch is that it’s made with no high-fructose corn syrup, making it a healthier juice option.
Did you know that Kedem Tea Biscuits come in flavors like Chocolate, Cappuccino, Orange, Plain, and Vanilla? They make the perfect grab-and-go snack that isn’t loaded with sugar. When your kid is tired of all the chips and candy, these are the perfect snack to reach for.
For kids who need a great gluten-free snack, Gefen Tea Biscuits are the way to go. They’re a delicious classic snack that is the perfect addition to the rest of the snacks they’ll have access to at camp.
On to the products all kids expect to eat at camp, candy! Only you’ll know that these soft-chew taffies are made with the best ingredients. Heaven & Earth Taffy Ropes contain no artificial colors, sweeteners, or preservatives. They are packed with flavor and are carefully made to create that flawless, soft taffy texture.
Don’t settle for just any ‘ole taffy. Heaven and Earth’s “Lil Taffys” are individually wrapped (perfect for sharing with friends), are packed with yummy flavor, and like Heaven and Earth’s other taffies, are better for you. Any kid would love seeing these packed in their away bags!
Another great gluten-free snack; Gefen’s Popped Chips are a must! They come in a perfect-size bag for kids, and are great eaten on their own, or paired with salsa and dips (which are also perfect for camp). These are loved by all for a reason.
Convinced you brainstormed every snack imaginable to pack for camp? Think again! Heaven and Earth Veggie Sticks are a great option for camp. Camp is really long, which means it’s likely your kid will get tired of the snacks they have very quickly. Pack some unexpected snacks in there for them, too.
Is there a kid who doesn’t like pickles? Our guess is no. Surprise them with some cans of this salty and savory treat!
We don’t only love these for their crunchy cereal exterior and creamy nougat center, but also because they can be enjoyed as both a snack and breakfast (in a bowl with milk).
Another healthier alternative to sugar-loaded candies, these patches come in perfectly portioned pouches and taste like fruit leather taken up about 10 notches! They’re one of our favorites!
In case you haven’t already noticed from this list, we love sending kids to camp with food they’ll ACTUALLY be thrilled to unwrap. However, that doesn’t mean everything has to be loaded with sugar. We want kids to FEEL great at camp too, which is why we love the balance of exciting and yummy treats that are also a drop healthier for you. We hope these snacks help make your kids’ time at camp extra fun and enjoyable!
Our kids want their snacks to cover all the bases; nosh, healthy alternatives, bags, for sharing, meal supplements…and grocery shopping, taking everyone’s opinions into account, is not an easy endeavor.
Thankfully, these camp boxes eliminate that source of stress, so we can sit back, relax, and lecture our children about brushing their teeth everyday. Easy packing!
