healthy snacks in Ball® wide mouth pint jars

With school in full swing, you might be looking for a little after school snack inspiration for your kiddos. I know I was! With my son and daughter in online school most of last year, grazing from the fridge all day, the after school snack went away. Now with them back learning in person, they are coming home hungry!


These healthy snacks stored in Ball® Wide Mouth Pint Jars have been game changers in my kitchen, and I think you might soon feel the same way. We prep our fridge with these easy snack ideas during our family's Weekly Reset to simplify our lives during the week! Having healthy, simple, easy to grab snacks on hand is a lifesaver for that time of day where everyone is a bit weary and decision fatigue is real.

Healthy snacks in an easy-to-access spot

The idea is super fun. You pack a Ball® Wide Mouth Pint Jars with part of your snack and use a small plastic cup with another component of your snack. I repurpose applesauce cups, but you can buy plastic cups for this exact purpose. The cup fits right inside a Ball® Wide Mouth Pint Jars and you're able to put the lid over both things and then store them in the fridge.


The different combinations of snacks really is endless, but I started out using some of our favorite snack options as I further tested the concept out for both myself and my kids.

The combinations for these healthy snack combos is endless!

The variations pictured above are:

  • Sliced apples and almond butter

  • Grapes and mixed nuts

  • Carrots and cottage cheese

  • Sliced apples and cheese bites

  • Pretzels and hummus

Other combos we like are:

  • Granola and yogurt

  • Celery and peanut butter

  • Overnight oats and peaches

  • Cottage cheese and pineapple

  • Hard boiled egg and cheese bites

I was a little worried about some of the non-traditional fridge items like nuts, seeds, granola and pretzels getting soft in the fridge, but that didn't happen! I think because the fruit cups fits up against the lid of the mason jar tight enough not much air gets in.


Preparing the jars with both items ahead of time takes the guesswork (and the inevitable headache that comes from it) out of the picture. Spending a little bit of time prepping on the weekends putting some jars together makes opening the fridge and finding a snack option (or two or three) when the troops are hungry a breeze.


If you love using Ball®jars for storage as much as I do, you might enjoy these other blogs where I've showcased other options using them like decanting dry goods in your pantry and diy makeup organization.
