Healthy Meal Prep Snacks

There are two types of people that I know, people who don’t snack and will eat at set times, and then there are people like myself, who will snack all day every day if given the option!

I love having healthy meal prep snacks on hand because if I don’t, I’d end up with 3 bags of chips from the vending machine at work. This may or may not have happened more than once as it’s $1.50 per bag at the vending machines at work LOL.

Anyways, these meal prepped snacks are perfect for both adults heading to work or class or kiddos going to school. They’re great well as to have in your fridge so your kiddos know they can always grab bento box of approved snacks to munch on during the day.

Benefits of Meal Prepping Snacks

Portion Control: Like I said, I’d snack all day every day if I could! So meal prepping snacks is a great way to make sure I don’t end up over snacking – once I’ve eaten everything in my bento box, I’m done.

I’m also one of those people where if I open a bag of crisps or nuts, I’ll mindless eat all of it without even noticing. Things like nuts are very calorie-dense and can be easy to overeat so this makes sure I don’t end up eating all of nuts at once. 

Less Stress: Having snacks meal prepped available makes it less stressful when I’m hangry and looking for food! Plus I remember when I was a kid and would yell “mooooom, I’m hungryyyy” it would have probably been less annoying to my mom if I could have just grabbed a box of healthy meal prepped snacks from the fridge.

Plus if you are heading somewhere further than usual (ie a drive to the airport), the prepped snack boxes means you don’t have to rely on figuring out where to find food.

Less Waste: More than once I’ve found some pack of cheese in the back of the fridge that I’ve forgotten about after I’ve bought it. Meal prepping snacks out in advance means you’ll be less than likely to have to toss forgotten expired items. 

Saving Money: Before I meal prepped snacks, I would just buy whatever snacks I felt like and end up with a ton of snacks at home. This is similar to having less waste as I’ve bought a zillion apples once only to have realized I bought cheese, crackers, more fruit, and more cheese as well. I would have bought less if I had gone in with a list of snacks that I wanted to meal prep!

What You’ll Need For These Snack Meal Prep Ideas

I use airtight containers to store my snack meal preps. This makes them last longer and is more environmentally friendly than using multiple plastic bags or plastic containers. Here’s what I use and the link to them at Amazon:
