List of Healthy Snacks

trying new foods
Here is a compiled list of snack ideas. To be considered healthy make sure you pay attention to portion size. Read the labels of packaged food. Don't buy items with high sugar high sodium content.
Sometimes changing the shape or look of food helps kids be more interested in eating a healthy snack. Sometimes I core an apple and cut it into rings instead of slices or instead of round carrot circles I'll cut them in sticks or leave whole and I'm amazed how much they enjoy this little change.
Check out some fun with food ideas to make eating more enjoyable for kids.
