72 Healthy Foods for Care Packages


It’s so tempting to want to send unhealthy food– cookies, candy, you name it. (Guilty as charged!) When I was sending care packages to John, he also wanted healthier foods because the healthy foods that were available weren’t rotated often and he missed the variety. (Check out the Baby We Were Born to Run, Souper Bowl, F-Words, and Honey healthy care packages for inspiration for themes!)

I’ve heard the same thing from many of you, so I put together a list of care package-proof foods that are healthy and should hold up being sent through the mail with the right packaging and precautions.

For this list, I’ve linked to some of the harder-to-find foods and recipes that really work and can be found on my blog.

  1. Any tips for mailing chocolate? I’m sending my first care package and concerned about sending clif bars that have chocolate due to the extreme heat in summer. Thanks!

    1. If there’s not too much chocolate in them, you should be good. Usually small bits of chocolate will just melt and resolidify. I’d avoid sending things that are made of a lot of chocolate. Also, since they’re Clif Bars, are you sure it’s actual chocolate? It might be a derivative that might have a much higher melting point.

  2. Hi there! I discovered from your website that Starkist would send tuna to troops deployed overseas. I contacted them and within 2 weeks, my husband received his onbard his ship! Thank you so much for sharing. He’s trying to eat healthier and doing so isn’t not terribly easy onboard. I thought this might make for an easy quick snack or addition to salad or bread.

  4. Thank you. Our son just joined the Air Force as is finally at tech school. We can send care packages, but wanted to avoid junk foods and sugary snacks. This list is fatalistic and now I have lots of ideas that he can share with his buddies.
