The summer season has barely started and already my son has turned into a snacking machine.  It seems like he is always hungry.  Instead of filling the pantry and fridge with processed junk food, I like to keep a good variety of better-for-you snacks on hand for those times when he’s starrrrrrrrrrrving!
