Bring these healthy and tasty treats to cool you down while you tan by the waves this summer

For many, summer means one thing: vacation. However, just because you’re on a break, it doesn't mean you have to be on a vacation from your healthy diet, too! So when you're spending a relaxing day at the beach, the treats you bring to the sand should be healthy ones.

Instead of turning to unhealthy beach snacks like potato chips or ice cream, try some of these healthy snacks instead. We've rounded up six snacks that are innovative, delicious, and filling, and your kids will enjoy them, too! You’ll not only leave the beach with a summer glow and smile, but you'll be satisfied, too — and not have to feel so guilty about it.

So if you're tempted by that ice-cold frozen chocolate cone being sold on the boardwalk, try snacking on frozen grapes or freeze yogurt droplets for a healthier treat. In almost all of these beach eats, frozen yogurt acts as the main ingredient — so buy tons of it (the healthy versions, of course)!

25 of Our Favorite Foods to Pack for the Beach

Packing food for a picnic in the park is pretty easy. But when your picnic happens to be on the beach, there’s a new set of rules and a few more factors to consider before filling your basket or cooler. For starters, there’s the sand. It’s totally obvious, but no matter how hard you plan and how many precautions you take, it inevitably ends up everywhere. There’s also the wind — the beach can be breezy, which means that sand and salt swirl around, attaching themselves to anything that’s remotely sticky, wet, or, let’s face it, edible.

Keep that in mind the next time you’re packing up for a (safe, socially distant!) day at the beach. And remember that even when you have a cooler, some beach food holds up better than others. Of course you can always pack the basics, like crackers, chips, nuts, and dried fruit, but it’s always good to have something a little more substantial.

10 Great Snack Ideas for the Beach

There are certain things you assume when you spend a day at the beach. For one thing, there will be sand everywhere. You can also assume all that fun in the sun and water will make everybody hungry. Very hungry.

Snacks are a must. If you're at a developed beach, you may be able to buy snacks from a concession stand -- but they're likely to be overpriced and unhealthy.

Beach time is supposed to be fun time, and nobody wants to devote a lot of effort to making snacks. But with a little planning, you can provide food to keep everybody active and happy without spending a fortune. You can even offer snacks that are more or less good for you.

The trick is to keep things simple. Adjust to the reality of beach conditions. That means you don't want snacks that will wilt in the heat, or large containers that let sand infiltrate your treats. And you don't want to have to keep up with a lot of utensils or dishes.

For some easy, tasty and handy beach snack ideas, keep reading.

Make a big batch of your own trail mix or snack mix. You can make it as nutritious as you want, and tailor the ingredients to your taste. Mix up almonds and other nuts dried cranberries, raisins and other dried fruits pumpkin seeds and shelled sunflower seeds bagel chips, Goldfish crackers (for the beach theme), dry cereal -- anything you like.

Keep in mind that everyone's going to be thirsty as well as hungry at the beach, so don't overdo the salt in your snack mix. The dried fruits will add a bit of sweetness.

Once you have your big batch ready, package it in small, single-serving containers. Small plastic bags that can be resealed are ideal. The individual servings are good for two reasons. They help keep you from mindlessly pigging out. And they keep wind or careless people from adding unwelcome sand to the whole batch of snack mix.

Want something even simpler than a mix? Try the next page.

Rich in carbohydrates but low in fat, pretzels make the perfect fuel for an energy-consuming day at the beach. Soft pretzels are good, too, but the harder ones are just easier to find. Buy twists, sticks, nuggets or whatever shapes and sizes suit your fancy. If you're concerned about nutrition, look for the whole-grain variety, which will have more fiber.

As with other beach snacks, divide your pretzel stash into individual servings. Use plastic bags that you can reseal or small containers with lids you don't want sand or water in the pretzels you're saving for later. And for an added treat, take small containers of hummus or mustard for dipping.

For more crunchy ideas, try the next page.

Popcorn isn't just fun to eat, it's also healthy. Popcorn is a natural whole-grain food that's high in fiber. It's also naturally low in fat. If you pop and season the popcorn yourself, you can make sure that it's tasty and stays healthy. Corn popped in an air popper is good. Lower-fat microwave popcorn is also fine. Corn popped in a pot or popper gets a little tricky. To keep it from entering the "bad for you" category, cook it in a small amount of canola or other healthy oil.

You might be tempted to add butter. Don't. Butter would only make the popcorn sticky and messy at the beach, in addition to adding fat and calories. Instead, add a little Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, chili seasoning mix or other dry spices. Don't overdo the salt, because everyone's going to be thirsty at the beach anyway.

Pack individual portions of popcorn in plastic bags or containers with lids. You don't want a big container of popcorn open and vulnerable to sand or damp air.

While making snack mixes, popping corn and dividing large bags of snacks into single servings can save you money, sometimes those chores just aren't convenient. Fortunately, a number of manufacturers offer single-serving packs of various snacks. Just avoid those that are overly salty or you'll need an extra cooler of drinks!

Nothing can be easier to prepare and serve than the simplest of fresh fruits. As a bonus, fresh fruit is about the healthiest snack can get. And most fruits won't make you thirsty.

You don't want to have to deal with much preparation once you're at the beach, so stick to the basics. Apples are great -- they come in their own package, after all. Just wash them before you stow them in the beach bag. Bananas are almost as easy. Just make sure to dispose of the peels properly.

Seedless grapes -- washed ahead of time and packed into a bag or other container -- also work well. And you can freeze them for an extra cool, refreshing treat.

If you have picky eaters in your party who don't want whole apples, slice the apples ahead of time and pack the slices with a little lemon juice so they won't turn brown.

If you're not taking a cooler to the beach, pack small plastic bags of ice to keep your grapes or apple slices cool and refreshing.

Coolers are handy to have at the beach, but rounding up all that ice every day can be a hassle. With this trick, you can help keep things (and yourself) cool without all the hassle. Before heading to the beach, freeze plastic bottles of water and individual boxes of juice. Pack them in your cooler or just in an insulated bag. They will help keep snacks cool, and as they thaw, they'll provide chilled, refreshing drinks. And if you're really worried about everything thawing too quickly, you can add an icepack or two for extra cooling action.

By now you've noted that individually packed snacks are the way to go if you're beach bound. Two of our favorites in this category are prepackaged granola and breakfast bars. All you have to do is buy a box or two, pack them, dole the bars out and throw away the wrappers. These tasty energy boosters don't need to be chilled. And if you pay close attention to the nutrition information on the box, they're good for you, too.

Of course, for those of you who prefer homemade to store-bought treats, you can make your own granola bars. Try this tasty recipe from Emeril Lagasse, for example.

That staple of parties and receptions, raw veggies with dip -- crudités, if you want to get fancy -- can easily move to the beach. Raw vegetables are, of course, good for you. They're loaded with vitamins, high in fiber and low in fat. But they're also cool, crunchy and refreshing.

Try celery sticks, whole baby carrots, broccoli and cauliflower florets, slices or sticks of raw cucumber, zucchini or yellow squash, cherry or grape tomatoes -- whatever's available in the store or your garden. Wash ahead of time. A mild solution of vinegar and water should do the trick. Pack in plastic bags or containers, and if you won't be using a cooler, adding small bags of ice can help keep the veggies cool and crisp.

Add small containers of hummus or low-fat dressing for dipping, and you're all set.

If you want a filling snack, sandwiches are always a popular choice. But for a day at the beach, you need to be a little creative. Regular bread can get soggy before it's eaten. Also, smaller is better, so there's no time for the sandwich to fill up with sand as you're eating it.

Instead of using loaf bread, make sandwiches on mini-bagels, English muffins or on wraps made with whole-wheat, spinach or sun-dried tomatoes. If wraps are big, cut them in half after you've rolled them.

Keep the fillings simple. If you want tomato slices, package them separately and add them just before eating. Pickles also should wait until the last minute to avoid making the bread soggy. Unless you're using a cooler, avoid mayonnaise and other ingredients that might spoil in the heat. Peanut butter and jelly is a good choice. So is ham with mustard. Save your fancy sandwiches for other days. Simplicity rules at the beach.

Cool little burritos can be a great snack at the beach. They're tasty, easy to eat, good for you and fun.

Just take your favorite tortillas -- wheat, corn, whatever. Make sure they're soft. Mash up some canned beans or beans you've cooked ahead of time. Black beans or pinto beans can work fine. Bean dip can even work in a pinch. Spread the beans on the tortillas. If you like, add a little chopped onion, chopped green chilies, a touch of salsa or a little grated cheese. Roll the tortillas up, slice them in half and wrap them individually in foil. Just pass them around when you're ready to snack.

No, ice cream isn't a good snack choice for a day at the beach. But if you're taking a cooler to the beach, or at least an insulated bag packed with frozen bottles of water, you don't have to avoid dairy products. Cheese can be a great beach snack because it's tasty and loaded with protein -- great for refueling after sand-and-surf play..

As with any beach snacks, go for individual servings. That helps minimize the amount of sand in your food and discourages over-indulging. Low-fat string cheese and baby cheese rounds are good choices. Cheese cubes packed in individual bags or small containers also work well. For an added treat, pack some breadsticks to munch with the cheese. Or enjoy it with some apple or pear slices.

Small low-fat yogurt packages also can provide yummy, protein-rich snacks, but you'll need to pack spoons.

Feeling fancy? Check the next page for a cool, delicious snack that takes just a little more effort.

You've probably already figured that we like to keep beach snacks simple. Nobody wants to put in a lot of work in advance, and nobody wants to deal with containers of food that are going to be magnets for the ever-present sand.

But a fruit salad doesn't have to require a lot of work, and it sure provides a refreshing and healthy treat.

Mix up slices or chunks of pineapple, kiwi, mango, some seedless grapes or whatever else you find. Sweet cherries can be good, too. Then stir in some frozen fruits. Frozen blueberries, strawberries and slices of peach work well here. You may luck into finding some of these fruits fresh and in season. You can freeze those easily. With blueberries, for example, all you have to do is wash them, pick off any bits of stem, put them in a plastic bag and pop them in the freezer.

Pack the salad into small containers and keep those in the cooler or an insulated bag, if you have one. If not, the frozen fruit you mixed in will help keep the whole salad cool for a while.

Healthy Snacks for a Day at the Beach

About 2 hours into my first day on the beach this summer I realized I had not planned well. The ice cream man began ringing his bell which automatically triggered my hunger. I dug through my beach bag and found nothing resembling food. After taking a swig of warm water from my half-filled water bottle I realized I needed to plan a bit better for my next day in the sun.

It’s easy to crave to junk food when on vacation or stranded on the beach for several hours. For me, packing healthy snacks is the way to go especially because the last thing I want is to feel bloated or sluggish in my bikini. Here are my picks for beach-friendly snacks that can translate easily into options for any outdoor outing this summer.

Dried fruit and nuts is possibly the perfect nutritional combination for your day at the beach. The great thing about trail mix is it’s totally customizable. Toss together your favorite unsalted nuts, dried fruits and seeds or whatever else you can dream up, and you have an instant healthy snack. This perfect pairing of carbohydrates and protein is also packed with nutrients like antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. Looking for convenience? Grab a KIND bar which is basically no-fuss portable trail mix in bar form. Avoid those that contain chocolate on a super hot day (likewise for adding chocolate to your homemade trail mix) it can get messy fast.

The best choices are citrus fruits, watermelon, blue or purple berries, mango and apricot. Why? All of these fruits have phytochemicals that can help protect your skin from harmful UV rays. While this doesn’t mean you're free to skimp on the sunscreen, it may give you the extra boost you need to stay safe in the sun. On top of their protective properties, many fruits are in season throughout the summer and are the perfect healthy and refreshing snack.

Can’t decide between sweet and salty? Want something easy that will fill you up? A banana with peanut butter will do the trick. Bananas are loaded with potassium as well vitamins B6 and C. Add some peanut butter to the mix: slather it right onto a banana, or enjoy this heavenly combination on a slice of whole-grain bread and you’ll be ready to ride waves all day.

Cut up some carrots, red bell pepper and broccoli to bring to the beach. As you may know, they are packed with vitamins and minerals to keep your body strong and healthy. What you may not know is that all these vegetables can also help protect your skin from the sun, so they are perfect companions for a day at the beach. Plus, veggies are a great source of water which will help to keep you hydrated. Not into veggies on their own? Pack a tasty bean dip like hummus or low-fat dressing for dipping and you’ll be set for fun in the sun.

Shelled or un-shelled, this bean is the perfect snack for the sand. Rich in fiber, protein (½ cup has the same amount of protein as 2 eggs) and energy-boosting carbs, this tiny green legume is great for noshing in and out of the sun. Pack frozen edamame in your beach bag and they will be ready to go come snack time.

It’s always important to stay hydrated when out in the sun but calories from beverages can add up quickly. For some of us, water is just not tasty enough. Try adding slices of cucumber, citrus or even melon to water with herbs like mint to add some pizzazz. Still bored? A quick, easy and healthy solution is iced tea. You can cold brew it at home and customize it, too. Try adding lemon, honey or ginger for some extra flavor. Plus, both green and black teas, like certain fruits, help protect your skin from UV rays, making it an ideal beach beverage. Not in the mood to brew? I love Honest Tea there are many low- or no-calorie options in a few fun flavors.

Sure, you can toss a few snacks into your beach bag, but for a full day at the beach these are my cooler must-haves to keep you going. Pack a few light cheese options like low-fat string cheese (Trader Joes has a new fresh mozzarella cheese stick -- yum!), Laughing Cow wedges or Baby-Bel minis. They're perfect for pairing with a piece of fruit. Snuggle a container of Greek yogurt up next to a frozen water bottle to keep it cool till you're ready for a mid-day snack.

The Daiquiri - Cuba

A frozen strawberry daiquiri cocktail

The Daiquiri was invented in Cuba but the original recipe of light rum, lime juice and simple syrup has evolved to include other fruit flavors such as peach, cherry or strawberry (as seen here at the daiquiri bar, Wet Willie's.).

You may not know it but July 19th is National Daiquiri Day according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. But even though the Daiquiri has been an intregral part of American bar culture since the early 20th century, the cocktail was initially conceived in Cuba. Mind you, it was invented there circa 1900 by American engineer Jennings Cox who named the drink after an Iron and Copper mine located in a small town called Daiquiri, near Santiago, Cuba. Author Ernest Hemingway is often associated with popularizing a later version of the daiquiri which was known as El Papa Doble or Hemingway Special and was created at the bar of the El Floridita while he was living in Havana, Cuba during the 1930s and ‘40s.

Since then there have been many variations on the daiquiri with bartenders adding strawberries and other fruit to the mix (pictured above is the strawberry daiquiri from Wet Willie's in Atlanta). And some cities have become meccas for the daiquiri connoisseur like New Orleans where the organizers of Tales of the Cocktail hosted the first Daiquiri Season celebration in September 2016. Ann Tuennerman, founder of Tales of the Cocktail, says, “The daiquiri machine was invented in Louisiana and in New Orleans everybody goes to daiquiri shops - Big Easy Daiquiris, New Orleans Original Daiquiris, Gene's Curbside Daiquiris and they sell various flavors and combinations of daiquiris. It crosses all socio-economic lines…all walks of life enjoy a daiquiri.”
