If you have active kids, you know they’re always in motion.

And whether they’re playing organized sports or just around the neighborhood, it’s important to make sure they fuel up on healthy snacks and drinks to keep their energy levels steady.

To find out how to keep your little ones energized, we tapped Extreme Weight Loss trainer (and dad-of-4!) Chris Powell for his best tips.

Check them out below:

Keep them armed with easy-to-pack snacks. Quick eats full of healthy fats (string, stick or cubed cheeses, almonds, cashews, peanuts and more) are great for on-the-go kids. You can just put them in a small container and stuff them in their backpack.

As a child, award-winning actress and author Julianne Moore may not have been a fan of her signature freckles and red hair, but little did she know they’d end up being the inspiration for her children’s book character, Freckleface Strawberry.

And now, the Game Change star has launched her second kid’s app called Freckleface Strawberry Dreamtime Playtime, which is based on Moore’s best-selling book series.

Designed for the iPad and iPhone, it’s a math-building skills game that lets kids count, sort, and match with Freckleface Strawberry herself.

“When I was developing the second app, I really wanted [to focus on] skills for children like counting, sorting and matching. Basic educational skills that can be put into a fun game for kids,” Moore told PEOPLE.

Talk about a dream come true!

If you were anything like us, you always wished your LEGOs could come to life. And now they are — on the big screen.

Starring new parents Chris Pratt (Emmet) and Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle) — we bet they had fun! — the new LEGO Movie is packed full of action but underneath the blockbuster-worthy special effects is the simple message that everyone is special.

Emmet starts off an ordinary guy until he meets Wyldstyle and her master builder crew — Vitruvious, Batman, Unikitty and more — and let’s just say that’s when his life changes forever.

And let’s not forget that every good kid’s film has to feature catchy tunes. In this case, it’s the can’t-get-out-of-your-head “Everyone Is Awesome” song.
