Better Snacks for Kids!

We get it, you have no time, don’t know how to cook or sometimes it’s just easier to go for the pre-packaged, sugar filled, chemical pumped snacks available at the store. But health deserves to take those extra 5 minutes to pack a fresh and natural snack.

Stop relying on “fat-free”, “Low-carb” ads, and get some real food on your kid’s bellies!
Here are a few ideas for healthy and easy snacks you can make at home:
1. Apple slices + Greek yogurt for dipping.
2. Rice cakes + Nut butter.
3. Bananas + Peanut Butter.
4. Frozen grapes.
5. Hummus + Whole Wheat Crackers.
6. Homemade trail mix
