Here is a collection of 25 healthy snacks for kids that are all so delicious! We all know that aa treat is fun every now and then, but not something we want to give our children on a daily basis. The good news with these healthy snacks for kids is that they’re so tasty, they will see these as treats too! Add to that, they’re all so easy to prepare that they can even help make them, and will be sure to put a smile on your hungry kids’ faces!
Snack time is a great opportunity for getting more fruit and veg into your child’s diet. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done, but if you dress it up a little, kids will be more interested in it. Let’s be honest, anything with a face on it is just pretty darn adorable!
Take the cucumber cups filled with hummus and carrot and celery sticks for dipping; with it jazzed a little, kids will want to get in there and dip into that hummus. The banana pop is a delicious banana segment on a stick that’s dipped in Greek yoghurt and then rolled in granola.
Kids might think it’s a super treat without realising just how healthy it is for them. Don’t be surprised if your children start asking for these healthy snacks more than sweets or biscuits (well, maybe!) 🙂
