We love having dehydrated snacks in our house. Why? Because it is the perfect healthy snack for kids, and for two of our Fab Foodies healthy snacks on-the-go are always great to have on hand.

Dehydrated FruitThe best part about dehydrating fruits and vegetables for your kids is that it requires no reading labels and you know exactly what they are eating. Also, dehydrating food is extremely easy and stores for weeks.

Food dehydration is a cost effective way to save money and make healthy snacks with low sugars and salts. Making your own on-the-go snacks are also a great idea when taking family vacations. Easily make beef jerky or fruit snacks the day before your trip are super fast to pack up and go when you are ready.

Ideas for healthy snacks range from any fruit (strawberries, apples, bananas), veggie (kale, zucchini), beef jerky, almonds, and using fruit leathers to make fruit roll-ups.
