Are you looking for some fun and yummy snacks for your little ones? Look no further! There are plenty of options out there that are not only delicious but also healthy. Some ideas include apple slices with peanut butter, homemade granola bars, trail mix with nuts and dried fruit, and yogurt with fresh berries. It’s important to make sure the snacks you choose are not loaded with sugar and are easy for your kids to eat on-the-go. So, grab some snacks and let’s keep those little tummies happy and healthy!
Exploring the variety
Popcorn is an excellent after school snack because it’s a whole grain, it’s low in calories and it has that satisfying crunch that kids love. Just be sure to pop it yourself so you can control the amount of salt and butter that goes on it. Pretzels are another great after school snack option. They’re lower in calories and fat than chips, but they still have that salty hit that kids find addictive.
Cheese and crackers is a classic option that never goes out of style. A single serving bag of crackers can be found at just about any grocery store, and it’s a great healthy option to satisfy those mid-afternoon hunger pangs. Yogurt is a great source of calcium and protein, making it the perfect after school snack. If your kids don’t like plain yogurt, try mixing it with some fruit or cereal for added flavor.
A simple slice of toast with peanut butter can be a nutritious and filling snack. Just be sure to use natural peanut butter and moderation, so that your kids don’t end up eating too much fat. Frozen fruit bars are a cool way to satisfy your kids’ sweet tooth after school without loading them up on empty calories or processed ingredients. Make sure to buy the ones with no added sugar for an even healthier option.
Healthy choice variety
Trail mix is another snack that is perfect for kids. Just keep in mind that many store-bought trail mixes are loaded with extra sugar and preservatives, so it’s best to make your own at home. Fresh fruit is always a great option for an afternoon snack, but sometimes you need something that’s going to be a bit more satisfying. Instead of reaching for an apple or a banana, try chopping up some fresh fruit and mixing it with granola or trail mix to help fill them up between meals.
A healthy smoothie is the perfect way to get your kids to drink their fruits and vegetables at snack time. Just be sure to limit yourself to 1-2 servings of fruit per smoothie and make sure that you’re using a natural, low-fat yogurt as the base. Water is always a good option for after school snacks. If your kids get thirsty during or after school, having water on hand can help keep them from indulging in high calorie beverages like sodas, juices and energy drinks. Plus, it’s a good way to get them to drink more water throughout the day.
