Unboxed: 7 new portable eats for on-the-go shoppers

Hectic days call for nourishing snacks.

No matter how many DIY-ers propagate Pinterest with beautiful make-ahead meal and snack ideas, the market for convenience items continues to gain ground—and shelf space. While nutrition bars, for example, were once relegated to checkout displays, now natural retailers stock entire aisles of the portable bars. Increased options have bolstered the bar section, making this category one of the fastest growing in natural. Clean-ingredient snacks, mini-meals and healthier indulgences offer consumers ample choices to sate hunger when a home-cooked meal seems impossible. Here, find seven of the newest natural products that cater to time-pressed shoppers.
