Healthy Back to School Snacks

 

Back to school again in the South, Midwest and West Coast.  My, how time goes by so quickly.  This is the season where a lot of our darling children will come home for a long day of school screaming  “ Mom!” “What’s for dinner?”  or “Mom, I am hungry!”  “What do we have to eat!”   If you do not have dinner ready now you can give them a healthy snack that will tie them over until dinner time.  Pick snacks that taste good, help them to look and feel great.

 

Make sure that you do not give too much of a snack that your child will not have enough to eat for dinner.  But, if your child is doing something active like playing a sport, taking a dance class, biking or running around with your friends, it’s OK to fuel up with a bigger snack.

 

Your child can eat lunch at noon and dinner’s at 6:00, a snack right after school–say at about 3:00–is just right. They will get some fuel to do homework or to get outside and play.

 

 You can pack a great snack in your kid’s backpack. If your child have after-school activities and can’t get home in time for a snack, you can have them take it with them. Pack sturdy stuff that won’t get squished–try an apple, single-serving boxes of raisins, small bags of nuts or pretzels or a box of juice.

 

 Here is the list below of some healthy snacks.  Eat and Enjoy!!

  • Low-fat yogurt–try freezing those squeezable tubes
