Healthy Snacks for your Littles
Scarlett and Naomi are pretty rad kids, the universe seriously hooked us up. They don't tend to be tooooooo picky when it comes to food, they're not perfect but pretty great eaters. That being said I have lots of mom friends that do struggle with feeding their kids.
Here are some easy peasy snack ideas for all types of kids.
The image above is a typical summer snack which is different from a snack I give them when I pick them up from school and I don't want it to be too messy.
fruit; you name it kids will probably eat it ;)
veggie sticks; carrots, cucumbers, baby tomatoes, celery
avocados straight up
hummus with crackers, pita, veggies or pretzels
whole wheat whole grain wraps with almond butter and bananas
toast with avocado mash, almond or peanut butter (any nut butter)
hard boiled egg
baked sweet potato fries
homemade or store bought granola bars or muffins - try for ones with not too much sugar.... good luck ;) I use the "Made Good" brand
yogurt with fresh fruit (almond, coconut or plain yogurt), I also let the girls sprinkle on hemp hearts, chia seeds or sesame seeds on their own
homemade fresh fruit roll ups
nutrient dense smoothies
steamed edamame - add a little sea salt ;)
steal cut oats with almond milk and fresh fruit
left over pancakes - we LOVE "Grainstorm Heritage Baking" made with buckwheat
Have fun and get the kids envolved, I find this helps a lot with my girls.
