Coming up with snacks for your kids is an art in itself, but making sure that the snacks that you come up with are also healthy can be well and truly coined as a specialty. However, making healthy snacks that your kids will love and enjoy eating is not that difficult once you have the basics down. You will need to remember the fact that what might taste delicious to an adult may taste absolutely disgusting to a child. This article lists some of the easy and healthy snacks that you can make for your child:
Watermelon Whole Fruit Popsicles: It is a wrong conception to hold on to that in order to taste good, a popsicle needs to be loaded with sugar. This watermelon popsicle will prove this theory wrong. These popsicles are made with fresh watermelon, kiwi, blueberries, peaches, and strawberries. The best part is that your child’s tongue won’t turn red on eating them, as they are free of any artificial food coloring.
Raw Zucchini Rolls with Walnut: Vegetables, when prepared in an interesting way, can help to capture your child’s interest. So as a parent, you will need to think out-of-the-box when it comes to making healthy snacks with vegetables. These zucchini rolls are fun to eat and are shaped just like sushi, which will get your child interested in this amazingly healthy snack.
Sugar-Free Low Carb Granola Bars: This is a fiber-rich snack that is packed with heart-healthy nuts and seed that your kids will love. These granola bars not just taste good but are also a great healthy snack that kids can have on the go. The best thing about them is that they do not have added sugar in them, so you don’t have to get worried about your kids getting all hyper and high on sugar from eating them.
Fruit-to-go: Like the name suggests, these snacks are a great option when you are in a hurry or if you are traveling. These snacks are packed with all the goodness of fruits in the form of a roll. Nut allergies being a big concern, you don’t have to worry about that with these snacks, as they are nut-free. Another thing about these snacks that are worth noting is that they have no added sugar in them.
Chocolate Hummus: The result of replacing the garlic in original hummus with cocoa powder, and the tahini paste with nut butter makes this a healthy and mouth-watering snack that kids will love. As these snacks are packed with chickpeas and nut butter, they are all goodness rolled into one snack.
