Looking for easy snack ideas for your kids? We think these nutritious make-at-home recipes and store-bought options fit the bill, and are perfect for mornings, afternoons, at school or after school!
If your kids are anything like ours, they are constantly asking for snacks. They ask before a meal, right after a meal, in between meals, and of course, the let’s-delay-bedtime request!
With all these snacking opportunities, it’s so important to make them as nutritious as possible, so your kids are fueling their bodies throughout the day.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Guiding Stars, a program that helps you easily choose foods and recipes with the most nutrition, to pull together some easy, better-for-you snack ideas.
Many of these snack recipes can be made ahead of time, so you can have them ready for when the “I’m huuuungry”s strike, or are quick and easy to make on the fly.
We love that these easy snack ideas are perfect for kids of all ages, from toddlers to teens, and can be quickly tucked into a lunchbox for school, or enjoyed at home.
And because we know that sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy to follow a recipe and go the homemade route, we’ve even provided you with some store-bought snack options that can add a healthy variety to your kids’ day – all of which rank on Guiding Star’s Good-Better-Best scale (more on that to come!).
Healthy snacking is a great way to increase the amount of nutrients in your child’s diet, so instead of opting for the typical junk food, try some of these easy snack ideas instead.
