Create Heathy Kids Snacks – Quick and Easy Snack Recipes That Will Satisfy Your Kids
At last here is a book that contains quick and easy “Healthy” snack recipes for Toddlers to Teens. Included are recipes that’ll satisfy the most ravenous teenager to the fussiest child and then some in between.
“What’s to eat?”…”When will dinner be ready Mom?”… Sound familiar?
Just about the first thing every child or teen does as they come through the door after school is ask, what’s to eat?
And with most kids, they’ll look in the pantry and grab the first thing that is within reach and appeals to their taste buds.
It’s usually something loaded with sugar, fat or grease, so long as it is something they can grab easily and quickly and fill them up, they’re happy!
But the truth is fast snacks usually do mean unhealthy especially if they’re pre-packaged and processed but for us busy Moms and Dads on the go, convenience usually rules the pantry.
We all know it’s really important to have healthy snacks within reach of the kids when they are hungry.
With a little planning, healthy doesn’t have to mean boring or time consuming to prepare and this is where these recipes can help out.
Toddlers are pretty easy to please if you make their snacks, colourful and interesting and providing healthy snacks at a young age will help children to always look for healthy snacks as they grow up.
Snacks can include fruit, vegetables, nuts, peanut butter and even sweet treats like cookies or muffins.
The key to keeping it healthy is using the right ingredients and watching the portion sizes.
We’ll cover the different types of snacks that can be made and stored ahead of time so that they can be grabbed quickly and eaten in the car on the way to practice, home from rehearsal or while waiting for dinner to be finished.
Don’t let your kids complain that a healthy snack is a boring and a gross snack to eat.
There isn’t a reason why everybody in the family can’t benefit from having a good healthy snack to keep the hunger bug at bay until mealtime.
So, without further ado, let’s hit the kitchen!
