As we start back to school, it’s like we press the reset button on our habits. Eating healthy, and particularly eating healthy snacks, is something we try to do and teach our kids! Unfortunately and fortunately, kids’ habits are impressed upon them by their friends and peers. I’ve seen it both good and bad for ours! Our kids are picky eaters, so seeing their friends try new foods helps our cause some days! On other days, our kids only seem to want junk food. It’s a battle we constantly have to fight, as we raise up our children to become healthy and make good choices.
8 Healthy Snacks Kids Love
- Smoothies – Our kids love the texture of smoothies! Add anything to strawberries and bananas! This is by far our favorite recipe
- Energy Bites- We love this recipe with peanut butter, flax seeds, chocolate chips, and oatmeal.
- Frozen popsicles
- Homemade potato chips
- Apples and Nutella
- Homemade Trail Mix
- Carrots, crackers, and hummus
- Fruit dipped in creamy fruit dip
It seems like we too easily fall off the good habits bandwagon, and anything goes with snacks. I am going to try to stick to my guns this fall, and hope that these habits stick to them! They love all of these snacks; the trick is the convenience factor. So, I will try to keep these healthier options easily available. This especially means having healthy snacks available in the car when we do our afternoon lessons, practices, etc. This is a challenge for me, but the goal is worth it! We’d love to hear how you keep your kids eating healthy snacks! Comment on Facebook or email us! Join our newsletter list for all of the latest ways to help you save money and live your priorities.
