As parents, finding quick solutions to everyday roadblocks is what we do best. So, when are kids come home from school starving, it's easy to want to let them grab something that is fast. But just because it is fast, does not always mean it is healthy.
Adding just a few extra minutes to the chore can assure that your child is getting something healthy that is both satisfying and packed with goodness.
Here are a few snack ideas that you can make in a pinch:
Hard-boiled eggs with salt and pepper
Homemade trail mix with peanuts, raisins, pretzels and chocolate chips
Peanut butter and celery (or apples)
Low calorie ranch dressing with veggies for dipping
Air popped popcorn
Homemade smoothies from fresh or frozen fruit and low fat Greek yogurt
Whole wheat tortilla roll up with jack cheese and sliced turkey
Moms, what are your favorite healthy snacks to make for your kids?
