Did you know that many children only eat one snack per day? Some of the most commonly bought kid’s snacks have a very low nutritional value and aren’t healthy snacks. If you choose the right snack you can support and even boost your child’s health! Let us help you find healthy snacks for your kids!
Tips for choosing the right healthy snack
- Use your child’s snack time to introduce healthy snacks like fruits and vegetables that your child wouldn’t normally eat at mealtime
- When you go shopping, pick up some healthy snacks to keep at home.
- Pay attention to what artificially flavored snacks your children like most. Once you know their preferences, you can substitute those with the appropriate fruit.
- Introduce foods with a rainbow of colors. You can use the wide variety of color to appeal to their senses and make the snacks more appetizing.
