Snacks for kid’s health

Snacks play a bigger role in today kid’s diet. According to a survey by U.S. Department of Agriculture that was carried on 10,000 children, kids today eat twice the snacks like crackers, popcorn, pretzels, and corn chips what they were eating 20 years ago. Still many kids fail to get many vitamins and minerals they needed. We need to have a proper planning for snacks as we have meal planning.

Some healthy snacks ideas:

  • Fresh fruits

  • Fruits canned in juice

  • Small amount of dried fruits such as raisins, apple rings, or apricots

  • Fresh vegetables

  • Reduced fat cheese

  • Low-fat yogurt with fruit

  • Breadsticks

  • Chunks of avocado

  • Whole grain breads

  • Graham crackers

  • Mini rice cakes

  • Apple slices with hazelnut butter

  • Frozen bananas

  • Nuts

  • Soy yogurt

  • Soy ice cream

  • Ramen soup

  • Tofu hot dogs
