20 Delicious And Healthy Snacks For Kids

20 Delicious And Healthy Snacks For Kids
Advertising

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…

    1. Peanut Butter and Jelly Popsicles

      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!

      2. Sweet Potato Fries

        Sweet potato fries are much healthier than the regular potato variety. Just make sure they’re baked and not fried.

        3. Light Beef Tacos

          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.

            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

                  This simple and crunchy snack proves that you can win friends with salad.

                    Apple pie and popcorn, together at last! Also, this snack is low on sugar and sodium!

                    9. Mini Turkey Burgers

                      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’

                        No recipe required for this easy snack. Simply dip fresh strawberries into vanilla yogurt. It’s a delicious treat!

                        11. Baked Zucchini Fries

                          Who said fries couldn’t be green and healthy?

                          12. Cucumber Boats

                            Not only are these super fun and healthy, they’re also a mild and fantastic gateway food into the world of curries.

                            13. Baked Onion Rings

                              Recipe Source

                              This is most definitely the one ring to rule them all. Plus, there’s no oil!

                              14. Paleo Pumpkin Cake Pops

                                Recipe Source

                                These cake pops may be gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free, but they’re certainly not free of tastiness!

                                15. Apple Chips

                                  A fruity snack that will be the apple of your kids’ eyes.

                                  16. Chicken Tenders with Creamy Honey Mustard

                                    Recipe Source

                                    Do  you want to go even healthier with this recipe? Skip the bread crumbs and serve grilled chicken instead.

                                      Recipe Source

                                      I know, another boat shaped snack. My solution is to make both and declare a vegetable war. Also, these looks so delicious and fun–a perfect incentive for kids.

                                      18. Monster Sandwiches

                                        Recipe Source

                                        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.

                                        19. Watermelon Pops

                                          Recipe Source

                                          Jazz up boring old fruit by turning them into health lollipops! If it’s a particularly hot day, freeze those bad boys down beforehand.

                                          20. Grilled Zucchini Pizza Slices

                                            Recipe Source

                                            This has all the fun of pizza without all of the bread! Everyone knows that the toppings are the best part!
