Shopping at Whole Foods can be overwhelming for anyone, especially when searching for healthy snacks on the go. With so many options to choose from, how do you know which snacks are truly healthy for you and your family? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered.

Keeping healthy snacks on hand can curb cravings between meals and provide needed fuel for those warm sunny days. But it’s not enough for them to simply be healthy — they need to be portable as well.

Here are our top 5 Whole Foods on the go snacks to satisfy your appetite and provide quality nutrition.

Original Beef Chomps

1. Chomps Original Beef Chomplings

Here at Chomps, we’re all about making healthy eating the easy choice. Our original beef Chomplings are delicious, packed with grass-fed protein, and will easily satisfy any salty craving. They’re also completely carb- and sugar-free, making them one of the best low carb snacks on the go.

Chomplings are a miniature version of our original beef jerky, which means they’re even more portable to fit into the smallest purse or fanny pack. This also makes them one of the top on the go snacks for kids to fit into crowded backpacks and sports bags.
