I have another question this time on healthy snacks

My hubby always buys chips and junk good as a snack bc I don't right down what kind of snack I want. I tell him I don't know healthy snacks, the thing is I am not use to eating healthy bc I don't have to worry about gaining anything lol. My hubby is overweight and I would like to not have any junk good in the house. I also want the kids to start eating healthy so they don't get overweight too. Plus they should be eating healthy anyway. But the thing is I can't really think of anything healthy beside like carrots, apples things like that. But what else can I buy healthy that are snacks and what healthy lunches can I buy?

  • my girls get cheese, fruit, veggies, Kashi Cereal bars(no hfcs), air popped popcorn, . Plus, what kids drink makes a huge difference. Only 100% juice, 1% milk, and water. You have to watch calories and sugar in their drinks.

  • Crackers and cheese are good, pretzels are pretty good. If you don't want to completely give up chips, you could do baked chips. You can make your own trail mix.
