Fruit Kabobs

Fruit Kabobs are so easy. There's no recipe required. Just slice bananas, kiwi, mangos and papaya and put them on skewers or choose any fruit you have on hand. Pretty, healthy and easy. Everything tastes better on a stick!

Frozen Watermelon Bites

This is one of the easiest and tastiest beach snacks ever. Chop watermelon into cubes and freeze overnight. Watermelon tastes sweeter when frozen and yet it's still easy to bite into. Absolutely refreshing, too.


PB&J Sushi Rolls

Sometimes novelty is key to winning over the little ones. Try this fun twist on peanut butter and jelly by rolling it and slicing it like sushi. PB&J sushi is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Try it with the kids on your next beach day.


Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas

Skip the chips and pretzels and try these satisfying snacks. This has to be one of the easiest chickpea recipes around. Roasted in the oven, chickpeas transform into a crispy, salty, savory snack. So tiny. So easy to eat by the handful. So delicious.

Pasta Salad in a Cup

Whether you make your favorite pasta salad or try one of these recipes, the key here is serving it up in a to-go cup with a lid and a fork. Individual servings make this an easy and tasty treat without the mess.

Veggie Sticks & Hummus

Speaking of single serving snacks, this one is easy and fun for the family. Put your hummus and fresh cut veggies in a cup to go and everyone gets their own healthy snack. Crisp, cool, creamy and delicious.

No-Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites

These No-Bake Trail Mix Energy Bites are filled with raisins, peanuts, chocolate chips, and M&MS. They are the perfect quick snack for beach trips or anytime you're out and about during your beach vacation.

Beach Ball Chex Mix

What makes Chex Mix even better? Adding festive beach balls, of course, thanks to the addition of cheese balls. Beach themed snacks just make your beach day the best it can be. It's the little things!


Meat & Cheese Pretzel Rollups

It doesn't get much simpler than rolling up your favorite deli meat and cheese and sticking a pretzel rod through each one. Again, sometimes it's all about serving up your favorite things in a new way. Perfect little beach snack, right?


Pizza Pinwheels

If you take anything and add cheese, pepperoni, and marinara sauce, it will be amazing. Roll them up inside flaky dough (aka puff pastry), and you've got insanely delicious pizza pinwheels. These are beach worthy, for sure—if they make it that far.

Crunchy Thai Rainbow Wraps

Bright, fresh, crunchy rainbow Thai peanut chicken wraps make the ideal lunch! They're veggie and protein-packed with a delicious peanut dressing for drizzling and dipping. So pretty, so yummy! They're really easy to eat at the beach, too. Win-win!

BLT Summer Rolls

Wrapped in a thin, light rice paper wrapper, these rolls give you more BLT bang for your buck. Stuffed with your standard bacon, lettuce and tomato with a few extras like avocado, mint and creme fraiche, these little summer rolls are packed with big flavor.
