Fresh fruit or veggies. Whole wheat crackers and cheese.

Mostly it's different fresh fruits. My kids love them.

I am not anti junk food but we dont have junk food on a daily basis either. Crackers, fruit, those rice cakes, popcorn, trail mix, nuts, string cheese, yogurts, veggies, animal crackers, homemade cookies. Stuff like that. My kids love smoothies too.

I'm a tattooed, piercing,  fresh eating, animal loving, free spirited, sort of helicopter, FF, CIO, circumcision, vax, pro-life, anti flu shot, non co sleeping, 3LO's, early potty training, snuggling is the best, video gaming, limited tv watching, natural remedies, natural health, Jesus is my home boy, church going, educated, writer, artist, photography, sarcastic kind of mom!

I don't feed my kids Mac n cheese. My oldest and youngest have a dairy allergy.

Quoting PikachuLuver:

The ladies who said they would never ever feed their kids mac and cheese are just straight out lying....or crazy? Just trying to make themselves sound good to complete strangers.

ok...I totally understand the importance of eating healthy. Yes, I do try my best to get my son to eat healthy snacks. However, He is at the don't want to eat stage. I have cried several times at the dr office because I don' feel he is eating enough to be healthy. I have adopted an as long as he's eating policy. I don't care if its a cookie, it is something to eat. Luckily, he loves cereal bars. I know its still not the best but at least its whole grains and not chocolate. Maybe when he gets out of this stage then I can get back to healthy choices.

 We eat hummus and veggies, all kinds of fresh fruit, air-popped popcorn, greek yogurt, homemade trail mix. When we eat snacks at home, we make them. Buying processed snacks doesn't make sense. They're more expensive and they don't taste as good.

We have healthy snacks and some not so healthy. They are kids everything is good with limits. If they want a small bag of chips then so be it. They are healthy so that's all that matters

Occasionally we have junk food but it consists of homemade cookies or muffins. Or some kind of berry/fruit crisp.

We eat a lot of apples, bananas, plums, grapes...oh, and yogurt.

I dont buy chips.

My husband eats popcorn occasionally but Im not a fan of popcorn.

I just ate a Kashi Dark Chocolate Coconut layered granola bar, and the kids are eating graham crackers. But I'm sure those are unhealthy and we will all die of food related cancer soon.

We are not anti junk food, but we do everything in moderation. My kids eat one "junk" snack a day, and two healthy snacks. For the healthy snacks the have hummus, or guacamole (I make it with "slimcados" that have less fat, plus it has tomatoes and onion and garlic and lime) or tzatziki. They eat each of those with fresh vegetables. They also have fresh fruit, smoothies, Greek yogurt (plain, not the sugar loaded flavored stuff).
