Fun Healthy Snacks for Kids
Obesity is becoming a rising problem among kids today. As a parent, it's up to us to help our kids lead healthy lifestyles. Below is a list of quick and easy snacks that you can fix for your kids.
Fruit kabobs are very easy to make. The first step is to gather your favorite fruits. Here are just some of the options that are available:
Wash the fruit and chop up into a bowl. You can squirt some lemon juice on top to prevent browning. Then you simply place the fruit onto kabob sticks. Yogurt makes a great dip for your kabobs.
This is an excellent snack for kids.
Homemade Trail Mix:
If you are looking for a healthy snack while you're on the go, homemade trail mix may be the perfect answer.
You can premake sacks of trail mix at home and pack them in the car or even at work. Simply combine almonds, raisins, dried fruit combinations, and a few chocolate chips and you instantly have a healthy snack.
Dried fruits are a healthy snack for any time of the day. They are especially convenient when you're traveling.
There are a wide variety of dried fruits available, including raisins, cranberries, banana chips, cantaloupe, diced pinapple, strawberries, cherries, cranberries, and many more.
In fact, if you have a dehydrator, you can make your very own dried fruit.
These dried fruits are also great for mixing with nuts.
