    There's one serving of organic fruit smushed into this roll-up, but your kid will only notice that it's fun to eat (well, and good, too). (FruitaBu Rolls, $4)
  • PB&A
    ? A match made in your crazy-busy heaven: protein-rich peanut butter slathered on a crisp, fiber-packed apple.
  • Anytime Nosh
    These satisfying bites—fortified with vitamins, fiber and minerals—will stave off before-dinner grumbles. (Barbara's Bakery Organic Wild Puffs in Fruit Medley, $4.50)
