Love your suggestions, Meredith Schneider ! And don't forget to toss an apple, mandarin, banana or other piece of fruit in your purse, too!
Meredith Schneider
Yes Donna John, don't forget fresh fruit! The funny thing is, I was gonna add that but I have had so many failures with fresh fruit. I forget about it and ends up squished in my bag. Nothing worse than a brown nasty banana at the bottom of a purse or diaper bag. YUCK! LOL!
Donna John
Yes, I've reached my hand in my purse and squished a nasty, green Cutie before. Nothing cute about that! lol

YES to all, but mostly to pretzels. What is it about those salty, crispy treats that I couldn't get enough of during pregnancy (and beyond)?! Thanks for the great suggestions, Meredith Schneider !
Meredith Schneider
Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds, I know right! Pretzels are still my go to snack for something salty & crunchy and/or if my stomach feels off.
