Between running errands, to dropping kids off at practice, to attending evening school events, when do we get a chance to stop and refuel our bodies? Constantly being on the go calls for us to plan our meals and snacks ahead of time to make sure we fuel our body while being on-the-go!



Today we are showing you how to utilize mason jars and the cooling technology of PackIt bags to pack healthy snacks on the go. These veggie jars are so simple to make and can be enjoyed by the whole family!


What You’ll Need:

  • 3 Mason Jars (different sized if you’d like)
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Broccoli
  • Peanut Butter (You can use almond butter)
  • Ranch
  • Humus

In your smaller jar, you’ll add 2 spoon fulls of humus to the bottom of the jar. You’ll then add your carrots standing up so they don’t get smothered in humus. Next, in your medium sized jar add in 2 spoons of ranch dressing to the bottom of the jar. Then add a handful of broccoli to this jar and you’re ready to go. Lastly, to your tallest jar add 2 spoons of peanut butter to the bottom of the jar. Before adding your celery, you may have to trim the ends to make sure that it fits inside the jar with the lid closed.




Place the lid on the jars and keep them cold in your refrigerator before eating. When you’re ready to take them on the go, grab your PackIt freezable lunch bag and easily pack your snacks to keep them cool. We packed our veggie jars in our Watermelon Freezable Lunch Bag. They fit just right at the base of the bag and kept upright as we carried them with us, not spilling the sauce all over the vegetables!


This is also a fun way that your kids can eat their vegetables, rather than placing it in their lunch. The idea of dipping your carrots or celery will make the slight difference for your kiddos and make it more fun to enjoy! These veggie jars can be a great pick me up for work or a great after school snack for your kids.
