10 Healthy Snacks For Kids

Given their way, children would love to live on a diet rich with chocolates and every possible sweet in the world. So being able to come up with snacks that will both allure them and also be healthy is a task. However, when those little tummies are grumbling, here are a few healthy snack ideas for kids to experiment with.

1. Go fruity

Cut up some apples, bananas and all the fruits you can find and add some vanilla ice cream to it. Not only will your little one fall in love with it, but he/she’ll also be having a lot of vitamins and minerals from all those cut fruits. Since kids do require ample amount of fruit intake every day, experiment with different flavors. Another alternative is to use dry fruits and yogurt in place of fruits and vanilla ice cream.

2. Cereal love

Cereal is extremely healthy and important as they are full in fiber which helps to improve digestion. Mix up cereal with some yogurt or even better, add some flavored yogurt.

3. Berry muffins

Play around with blue berries and raspberries or maybe some strawberries and bake muffins. Berries are known to be very healthy and also known for their antioxidant properties.

4. Smoothies

Blend all those fruits, some yogurt and milk to create yummy smoothies. The best part is that you can experiment a lot with these ingredients.

5. Apple pudding

Apples are rich in vitamins and minerals and basically everything your child needs. So, slice some apples and transform them into a pudding to come up with a healthy and yummy snack.

6. Pizzas

We doubt you’ll ever meet a kid who doesn’t like pizzas. Pizzas are a great way to get your child to eat veggies. Add some mushrooms, tomatoes or bell pepper to create a great taste.

7. Get cheesy

Team up cheese with whole grain crackers. Cheese is a great source of calcium and can be cut into different shapes to make it look attractive. The crackers add to that extra ounce of taste and nutrition.

8. Popcorn

When it’s not flooded with butter and salt, popcorn makes for a very healthy snack filled with fiber and whole grain. Though it might not be so great on taste, it can be worked upon with a little sprinkling of garlic or cinnamon.

9. Go peanuts!

Although high in fat content, peanut butter is also a good source of protein and fiber. Either use it as a spread with bread or you use it as a dip with some vegetables. Since it can be very fatty, avoid using in large quantities.

10. Roll up meat

Meat can be a good source of protein. Instead of the flat slices of meat, try rolling it up with cheese and other ingredients to get a better taste.
