20 Delicious And Healthy Snacks For Kids

Finding healthy snacks for kids that they will actually eat can be a huge pain. The good news is that there are plenty of foods you can use to tempt them without rotting their teeth. In fact, they’re sure to love them! Just never tell them that these snacks are good for them, we all know how kids react to that…

      This is the perfect combination of a beloved classic and a summertime snack. Considering that Australia can be compared to the surface of the sun at the moment, I’ll be trying these myself. As an added bonus, there’s no bread, so there’s less carbs!

          The lean beef and low fat corn tortillas make this snack a healthy snack for kiddos.

          I have to disagree with Martha on the guacamole, though. Guacamole is a perfectly healthy addition, particularly if it’s home made. Avocados contain good fat that’s beneficial for young and old bodies alike.

          4. Home made ice cream

            Do you want to give the kids a treat and not worry about the sugar content? Make your own ice cream! You get to control the ingredients, as well as the amount of sweetness that goes into it. The above ‘honey macadamia gelati’ is just one of the many delicious home made recipes. I also recommend avocado ice cream with fresh strawberry coulis. It’s healthy and insanely delicious, trust me! The great news is that many of these recipes don’t even require an ice cream maker!

            5. Home made popsicles

              This is the same as above, but without the dairy. If you’re in a hurry, simply blend a small amount of juice and water with the fruit of your choice and freeze them in popsicle molds. Voila!

              6. Smoothies

                This is a fantastically healthy alternative to milkshakes! I’d also recommend sneaking in some undetectable vegetables, like avocado or spinach.

                7. Carrots with Peanut Dipping Sauce

                      Just because McDonald’s is bad for your kids doesn’t mean that all burgers must be. These delicious mini turkey burgers make both a healthy and fun snack that children actually want to eat.

                      10. Healthy Strawberries and ‘Cream’

                                        Why have boring old sandwiches when you can have monsters? Ham and cheese has never been more fun. I recommend using multigrain and wholemeal bread to make this a healthy snack for kids.
