Healthy Snacks

The warm temps are in full swing, and your kids need energy for their outdoor activities. The hot days at the pool, on the soccer field and playing with friends in the neighborhood are some of the best places to make memories. Help them keep their bodies fueled with nutritional foods instead of chips and sugary treats.

Offering healthy snacks can be another way to teach your children good eating habits for life and add more nutrition to their diets. I encourage parents to think of all the food groups when it comes to planning snacks. In addition to fruits and vegetables, protein, dairy and whole grains are also important.

Here are ideas for creating healthy summer snacks your kids will crave:

Frozen Grapes

Grab a bunch of grapes, place in a bowl and freeze for a 2-3 hours! Sweet, cold and can enhance a glass of water!

Kiwi Popsicles

Peel and slice kiwi 1/4 thick. Take some lollipop sticks (purchasable in a craft store) and pierce through kiwi. Freeze for 2-3 hours.

Peanut Butter Apple Sandwiches

Slice apples 1/4 thick spread 2tbs of peanut or almond butter.
