I was noticing the other day that my son has lost a little bit of weight since we started this tour almost two months ago. He hasn't lost a lot, but a bit - and he doesn't have anything to lose. He eats like a horse, and I feel like I spend my days shoveling enormous spoonfuls of peanut butter into his mouth. He eats a lot each meal (lunch the other day consisted of three PB & J sandwiches, a blueberry bagel, 1/2 bag of chips, and an apple), but is still hungry between meals. I started keeping a bag of baby carrots in his handlebar bag so he can munch on those while he is riding between meals.
However, now that I notice he is losing weight, I'd like to keep something available that has some calories. He likes nuts and trail mix, so I'll use those, but I'm looking for other suggestions. This particular child is very sugar-sensitive, so I refuse to go the cookie/chocolate route (although he would love it!).
So - besides nuts and trail mix, what kinds of snacks would be easy to eat while riding? It has to be something he doesn't have to unwrap or do anything to - something he can just grab and pop in his mouth.
Thanks for your help!
