Healthy Snack Suggestions for Kids

Snacks are an important part of a growing childʼs diet. Healthy snacks give children extra calories and nutrients between meals. 
Skip a pre-packaged snack food and have some fun with your child! Here are a few ideas:
  • Peel a banana and dip it in yogurt. Roll in crushed cereal and freeze.
  • Spread celery sticks with peanut butter or low-fat cream cheese, top with raisins.
  • Stuff a whole-grain pita pocket with ricotta cheese and Granny Smith apple slices. Add a dash of cinnamon.
  • Mix together ready-to-eat cereal, dried fruit and nuts in a sandwich bag for an on-the-go snack.

Four year old classroom made fruit pizza's for snack: low sugar cookies, low fat yogurt, fresh fruit.
