Regardless of what Mother Nature thinks, summer is almost here! That means lots of outdoor fun and the need for healthy on-the-go options for families. During Bronx Week last week, we had the chance to share some of our favorite healthy options with Bronxites who came out to the Borough President’s Health Day event. There were fitness demonstrations, a rock climbing wall, and more!

Here are some of our picks for this summer’s must have healthy options. Be sure to pack a few of these in your tote bags or coolers this summer!




Aquaball Water

These fun waters come with 0 sugar, yummy flavor, and no artificial colors or flavors added. Kids love them because of their fun characters on each bottle, so they’ll be happy to request these over sugary juice options. Throw a couple in your bag or pack in their lunch for summercamp.

For a snack idea- go with this snack pouch option- with 1 full serving of fruits and veggies in each pouch.Available in lots of great flavors, these are the perfect way to ensure your little ones still get the vitamins- even if they don’t want to stop digging in the sand to stop and eat.

When the sweet tooth does hit, try some of Go Raw’s certified organic live foods. What does that mean? The ingredients in the healthy snacks are not cooked- they are sprouted then gently dried, which helps lock in and preserve more nutrients. GMO-free, Soy free, gluten free, vegan, and nut free. Keep some in your bag this summer and avoid those junk food purchases while out.
