4 Healthy Summer Snacks for Kids

4 Healthy Summer Snacks for Kids

1.  Cheese Kabobs: Kids love cheeeese!!!  The protein in this kid-friendly snack keeps energy levels high until dinnertime.  We like to stick fruit pieces onto kabobs for a low-fat healthy snack.  You can also make cheese more interesting to kids by cutting it into fun shapes with a cookie cutter. 2.  Healthier Baked Goods Your child will never guess you're sneaking fruits or vegetables into their diet when you bake them into yummy muffins.  Banana bread, bran muffins, zucchini muffins, and carrot bars are a few of our favorites for kids. 3. Yogurt Pops Low-fat yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, and children love it!  Try adding taste and nutritional value by whipping up a yogurt parfait with berries and granola or make a homemade fruity yogurt pop that beats sugary store-bought frozen treats any day. 4.  Sweet Potatoes Chips Sweet spuds are some of the most nutritious vegetables around: They're packed with vitamin A and are good sources of B6, C, and folate.  These delicious chips are great alternatives to the greasy, fat enriched, store-bought varieties.
