Easy to Pack Soccer Snacks

Our Saturdays are often spent on the soccer field.  Most weekends, it is an hour on a Saturday afternoon, enjoying the sun and watching our oldest play a game.  Now that the season is coming to a close, we are in the midst of soccer tournaments.  This means more hours on the soccer field, more prep for me the night before, and I feel like I need to have more options to keep him hydrated and fed between games.
