We could all use a few little snack ideas for packing some “better for you” snacks (and help us avoid fast food)! Pick up some fruit and Cracker Barrel Cheese for these easy to make snack skewers. These are perfect for the kids (or adults too)! What I love about this snack is involving the whole family so let the kids help make the skewers before you hit the road (they”ll be more excited to eat their own creations)!
