5 Healthy Snacks Tips For Kids


It's a struggle to get your kids to eat their 3 square meals in a day, getting them to eat healthy snacks is even harder. Eating healthy snacks all through the day gives your kid more energy, that they always need. My 5 years old son is a picky eater, so I try to get him a nutritious snack that can give his body more vitamins and keep him healthy as well. Eating the snacks together also make him eat more, so it's best if you eat the snacks with your kids. 

Here are my 5 healthy snacks tips for your kid:

1. Yogurt :


Looking for a healthy snack for your kids? look no further, yogurt is not just full of protein and calcium, it is also nutritious and tasty. It is low in calories and has probiotics that can help balance the bacteria in the digestive tract. Greek yogurt is always the best choice because it has more protein, less sodium compared to other yogurt and the texture is smoother. You can also go for plain yogurt or buy the lightly sweetened or flavored ones if your kid refuses to eat the greek and plain one.

Yogurt can be eaten alone or mixed with granola/cereal and fruits. You can also blend yogurt with fruit to make a smoothie for yourself and kids. This is a healthy snack your kids can eat at home or packed with their lunch box.

2. Fruits Or Fruit Salad :

Fruits are sweet and nutritious, they are full of vitamins that can boost the immune system of your kids. Kids will most likely eat fruits if given to them, give them individually, or mix up their favorites to make a salad. When your kid has a favorite fruit, he/she will eat a lot of it. My son, for instance, loves grapes and bananas, When offered other fruits like strawberries or apple, he eats a little out of it. Try different fruits with your kids, until you find the one they like the most. During cold seasons, like fall and winter, I give my kids a lot of Orange to protect them more from running nose and cough.

3. Whole Grain Crackers :

Crackers made with whole grain is full of fiber and also a perfect snack for a toddler, look for a crunchy one with less sugar and sodium in it. Crackers are also nutritious and they can be given instead of sugary biscuits, You can add various toppings like avocado, cheese, or low-fat dips to make it inviting and more nutritious for your son/daughter.





4. Raw Vegetables :

There are lots of colorful and nutritious fresh vegetables your kids can eat as snacks, it is not very sweet like fruits but it's loaded with rich vitamins that are needed for a healthy life. Vegetables provide a lot of nutrients to the body, such as fiber, vitamins A, E and C, folic acid, and potassium. They contain little to no fat, no bad cholesterol, and low calories, the nutrients in vegetables can keep a lot of diseases at bay and maintain a healthy body. My kids love carrots and cucumber so I buy this a lot for them to snack on, figure out what your kid's favorite vegetable is, and make it a snack for them.

5. 100 % Fruit Juice:

Your kids might not feel like eating anything and just want to drink. Water is always the first choice, but you can give them 100% fruit juice during snack time. You can also make popsicles with the fruit juice, it will make it more fun for them. Always avoid giving your kids fruit punch or soda, it's not only full of sugar it is also bad for their teeth. It is best to take a nutritious drink.

Kids will always be kids,  They will mostly refuse to eat the healthy foods, but it is our duty as mothers to ensure they eat food and snacks good for their body to keep them healthy.

  1. I am so with you that kids are finicky eaters. My son opts for everything healthy, my girl - not so much. The option they BOTH agree on is fruit - especially grapes, both satisfying the sweet tooth & the health nut.

  2. Yogurts and natural fruit juices are the ones my son loves. Though Raw vegetables doesn't lure him as he is 3only right now, but I try to give him all veggies in some form or the other.

  18. We always do fresh fruits and veggies with peanut butter and different dippings. It's great to find creative ways to have delicious snacks that are healthy at the same time. I love snacking but it can get to be bad when you get obsessed with unhealthy snacks (chips and chocolate are my weaknesses)
