With warmer weather comes the opportunity to spend time outdoors, basking in the sunshine and indulging in family time. There’s no better way to enjoy summer than with a day at the beach. Every beach day requires good snacks, including options that are not only portable and delicious but kosher-friendly as well. Sarah’s Tent has some suggestions for delicious beach day snacks that are perfectly kosher and ideal for every palate.

Why Choose Kosher Snacks for the Beach?

Kosher snacks are perfect for any outdoor picnic or beach day. Kosher options tend to be inclusive of all types of diets and are often healthier than many other processed snacks. Additionally, it can be hard to keep food fresh and safe when spending a day on the beach, with sand and water ever-present. Kosher snacks are adaptable to almost any environment, making them ideal for packing in a secure tote and heading to the water’s edge.

Fruits and Vegetables – Nature’s Ready-Made Snacks

Fruits and vegetables are not only refreshing but healthy as well. Fruit and vegetables are probably the easiest snacks to pack and eat, often requiring no special considerations or extras. Consider bringing pre-cut watermelon slices with you to the beach. Watermelon provides a boost of hydration and all-natural sweetness, perfect for beachgoers of all ages.

Veggie sticks with kosher dip packs are another excellent option. Packed with essential nutrients, veggie sticks, including carrots and celery, are perfect as an accompaniment to sandwiches or on their own.

Dips and Spreads

Pair a quick dip with some veggie sticks or pita chips for a wholesome, filling beach day snack. You can make a simple kosher hummus by combining chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and kosher salt. Blend until creamy and delicious, and pack in a separate container for transportation to the beach. Guacamole is another delicious option. To make guacamole, blend mashed avocado, cilantro, chopped tomato, diced onion, and kosher salt in a bowl. Add lime juice for extra tang!

Sandwiches and Wraps

There’s nothing better than a filling, nourishing sandwich while at the beach. Tuna salad is one tasty option. Pack the tuna salad in a well-sealed container and whole grain bread slices in an airtight baggie or sandwich sack. Assemble your sandwiches at the beach and serve them with veggies or fruit. A grilled vegetable wrap is another wholesome entree, perfect for days in the sun. Pack grilled veggies in one container and kosher cream cheese in another, along with a package of snack wraps. Build your wraps at the beach for a burst of seasonal flavor!

Snack Mixes and Nuts

Whether homemade or store-bought, snack mixes and nuts are perfect for natural energy. Trail mix can easily be made at home by combining kosher nuts, seeds, and dried fruits of your choice. Sarah’s Tent carries a fabulous selection of kosher nuts, including raw cashews and slivered almonds. Roasted chickpeas are also delicious and good for you as well. Season them with the kosher seasoning of your choice to create your perfect beachside snack.

Sweet Treats

No beach day is complete without some sweet treats. Consider options that don’t easily melt in the sun, such as kosher granola bars packed with nutrients and vitamins. Frozen grapes or kosher gelatin cups are also tasty and satisfy your sweet tooth without making a mess.

Hydration and Refreshment

Staying hydrated is important every day, but especially so when you’re out in the sun and sand. Bring plenty of drinks, including fun options like homemade lemonade or iced tea in large water bottles for easy transport. Kosher-certified coconut water and sports drinks can also boost hydration.
