Easy snacks for kids
I don’t know about your kids, but mine eat ALL day long. I have read that means they have nutritional deficiencies, not enough protein, blah, blah, blah. I think its because they are so active and don’t eat a load at one setting. So, having nutritious, easy snacks is a must at our house!
First stop: fresh fruit! They absolutely love fruit; frozen blueberries, sliced apples, oranges, bananas, strawberries. We go through pounds and pounds of fruit in a week.
Second stop: cheese & nuts. I purchase raw almonds & walnuts by the pound and they consume them like candy (instead of candy). Extra sharp cheddar cheese is a snack staple at our house. They eat it with whole grain crackers, raisins & in whole wheat tortilla wraps.
Third stop: peanut butter wraps (natural peanut butter & whole grain wraps), turkey & cheese wraps, & cheese wraps.
Forth stop: yogurt (plain greek yogurt sweetened with stevia & added fresh or frozen blueberries)
So that’s what we have for snacks at our house! What do you have at yours?
