The Best Healthy Snacks for Kids

The Best Healthy Snacks for Kids

Break out these snack lists of nutrient-dense kid’s snacks when you are in a rut and the kids are hungry!

My kids eat lunch early in the day, so I like to send it filling school snacks for them to have later in the day. Plus, we need snacks for when they come barreling through the door at 3:25 ravenously starving! I don’t know about your kids, but mine act as if they’ve never seen before, no matter what I sent that day with them to snack on!

It seems that now that they are tweens, we are going through healthy snacks like crazy. We all know how quickly kids change their minds about what they like. I hope this of healthy kids snacks will come in handy. You will find fresh ideas that will be perfect for school lunches and easy snacks for after school.

I love that the whole family can make good choices for snack time. A lot of these school snack ideas can be a great idea for a healthy breakfast. These are great snacks for picky eaters and older kids. I really prefer nutritious snacks with simple ingredients, no added sugar, that will sustain the kids for a long time until their next meal.

Don’t get me wrong, my kids have their share of junk food, but I try to keep them as a extra special treat now because they really need a filling snack so they aren’t snacking all day long. We keep a lot of these healthy snack ideas in the car too for when we are on the go.
