Anyone have any healthy snack ideas for my child to take to school?

My SD is supposed to bring a 'healthy' snack into school each day. She used to take cheezits or goldfish, but recently she's gotten tired of them. I started giving her craisins but now she's getting tired of those too. Does anyone else have any healthy snack ideas?

  • We do snack for Kindergarten too. My DD usually gets two small snacks, one is always a type of fruit or veggie, apple slices, grapes, oranges, mandarin oranges, banana, apple sauce, grape tomatoes, carrot sticks...with that she sometimes takes a yogurt (I specifically contacted the yogurt company about this, lol. Yogurt can safely stay out of the fridge for 4 hours)....or she gets a salty snack with her fruit or veggie, goldfish, pretzels, pita chips.... and she gets milk at school. I let her choose each day.

  • Fruit Slices. Remember to drizzle with Lemon juice, so that they don't go brown and gross in her lunch box.
    Veggie Slices with dip. Broccoli, Carrots, Culliflower, pickles, green beans, etc.

  • I buy Persian cucumbers and stick a couple in DS's lunch box. He loves them. Crunchy and good for him. He also likes dried fruits like craisins, papaya, pineapple and banana chips. Today he took pomagranet seeds. He's not allowed chips or crackers for whatever reason.

  • Seeing, she probably only has a few minutes to eat snack, keep it small and easy to eat. Carrots, celery, cucs and dip. Graham crackers. Half a sandwich. A handful of grapes, a yogurt--like gogurt. Cheese cubes and crackers. Pretzles. Veggie crisps (like potato chips but made with diffrent kinds of veggies). Veggies puffs (you can get the puffs and chips in the organic section).

  • Carrot sticks with hummus. Or celery and/or triscuits with some spreadable cream cheese- they make veggie flavored, strawberry, etc and they are delish. String cheese is good, too.

  • Take your daughter to the grocery store and let her look at the fruit and produce and let her decide what she wants to take. At our school the kids only have about 3 minutes to eat snack and it must be in a throw away container and not require refrigeration. It limits the choices.

  • Apricots cut into small pieces, grapes cut up, baby carrots and dip, hummus and pita chips.
