At last! A snack option for today’s weddings that’s yummy, handy, and healthy. We’re talking about pre-portioned, pre-packaged munchies featuring fruits (fresh or dried), nuts, cheese, veggies, crackers, light meats, small salads, and dips—in other words, healthy snack boxes! Quite the trend nowadays for fitness-conscious consumers. So why not for weddings?
Imagine how ideal these would be for wedding midnight snacks, for quick bites for the bridal party on the morning of the wedding, or as part of the welcome bags at a destination wedding! And so readily available at grocery stores or for online order. Gotta love these goodies that are also good for you! (*this post contains affiliate links)
