Kids can be so annoying when they start snacking all day. They’re always hungry, and we have to keep them alive. But there are some snacks that work well for kids who are constantly grazing on food throughout the day.
In this post, I’ll go over some ideas for healthy, filling snacks that will help your kids get through the day without you having to worry about them getting into any trouble later on down the road.
Best for the morning
- Toast with jam or peanut butter,
- muffins or pancakes
- cheese, and crackers
- graham crackers
Best for the afternoon
- Fruit: Fruit is one of the healthiest snacks you can offer your kids. It’s a good source of vitamins and minerals, but it doesn’t contain any saturated fat or cholesterol. Apples are great, but bananas are also a favorite among children. You can slice apples and pears into strips or cut up oranges. Bananas come in their own biodegradable packaging if you don’t want to use plastic bags! If your child likes grapefruit, try offering them on whole wheat crackers for an afternoon snack that’s full of antioxidants and deliciousness!
- Vegetables: Vegetables are another healthy option for snacks, especially raw ones like carrots or broccoli stems (which many children love). They’re loaded with nutrients like vitamin C and potassium; when cooked they can still provide valuable nutrients even though they might not be as exciting as candy bars! Add some crumbled feta cheese on top for some extra flavor kick; this will also help increase calcium intake which may be lacking due to lack of dairy products consumed throughout day…
- Dried fruits are another great snack option. You can buy them at the grocery store or make your own by drying out your favorite fruit at home (just be sure to wash it first). They’re full of vitamins, minerals and fiber which is why they’re so good for you! Try adding some nuts to your dried fruit; this will add protein and healthy fats while still maintaining their deliciousness.
- Nuts are another great snack option because they’re full of healthy fats and protein. Try adding some nuts to your dried fruit; this will add protein and healthy fats while still maintaining their deliciousness!
Best for the evening
- Healthy: Good snacks are ones that will fill you up, but not make you feel sluggish. They should be easy to digest, and keep your energy levels high so that you can do your homework after dinner or go out and play with friends afterward.
- Easy to make: You want something that’s quick enough that even if it’s late at night, it won’t get in the way of going to bed on time.
- Fun to eat: No one likes eating something boring! A good snack will be tasty and satisfying without being too unhealthy, which means no chips or candy bars!
- Easy for parents/guardians to pack: Snacks need not only taste great; they also need convenience – like being easy for adults/parents/guardians (if applicable) to pack in a lunch box or baggie without taking up too much room in there!
Kids need to eat small snacks several times a day.
- Snacks should be easy to make
- Snacks should be easy to eat
- Snacks should be easy to carry
- Snacks should be easy to store or save for later (like in the fridge)
- You want your kids to snack on healthy foods, so snacks should not contain too much sugar or fat
You want your kids to snack on foods that are easy for them to eat. If you give them something that requires a lot of prep work or cutting up, they may not bother with it.
You want your kids to snack on foods that are easy for them to carry around. If the snack is too messy, they’re less likely to eat it at school or when they’re out with friends. They also won’t be able to eat it in class if it needs lots of preparation time or if it makes a mess.
It’s important that kids eat small snacks throughout the day. This will help them stay focused and healthy!
