My favorite portable convenience food right now is dried fruit. Each of my children has a favorite. Big P likes apricots, Middle E likes dates, Little A loves freeze-dried mango. I consistently have dried fruit around because it is so easy to “grab and go.”
Why is this a true convenience food?
- It packs well.
- No peels to throw away.
- Full of fiber.
- Everyone in my family likes it.
- Available in all grocery stores and some gas stations.
Dried fruit isn’t new of course. But, we all need a reminder that it is the original fruit snack. Look for dried fruit without any added sugar.
Pick a few new fruits to try this summer with your crew like currants or figs. Pack them in your favorite plastic bag or container and get moving!
