How to Make Snack Time Healthy for Kids + $50 Amazon Giveaway 7/14 US

If you’re a parent then you know the struggle of making sure the kids get a healthy snack. I think it’s even harder to do in the summer when they’re home all day. Check out what we’ve decided to do to make snack time healthy for kids! Thanks to vivaNUTRITION for sponsoring this post! 

How to Make Snack Time Healthy for Kids

ways to get the kids to snack healthy

 

Cut out the sugary drinks. We’ve been sticking with water and milk and not buying soda this summer. It’s working great and the kids are healthier with the water. 

Introduce more fruits and vegetables and less chips and crackers. We keep a bowl of apples and a huge bag of washed grapes. This way when they’re hungry they grab for fruit because it’s ready to go. 

Add salads as a delicious snack if they’re wanting to munch too much during the day. You can add hard boiled eggs and even some yummy deli meats. We eat a lot more salads during the summer because it’s a cold meal or snack that is also delicious. 

Make sure they eat plenty of protein. We do this by having hard boiled eggs, string cheese and milk available to them all day. These are great ways to keep tummies full longer too. 

We also add in some yummy super fiber bars from vivaNUTRITION. Here’s a few reasons why we love them.

  • The vivaNUTRITION Super Fiber Chia Bars are made from 100% natural ingredients and contain both chia and oats
  • Chia seeds contain omega-3 fats that have various health benefits for children’s behavioral, attentional and emotional health.
  • Chia seeds pack a bunch of energy that can help in a child’s daily activities
  •  Oats contain a high amount of fiber as well as nutrients.
  •  Oats help provide energy throughout the day, giving children the energy they need both for studies and play activities.
  • The fiber in oats helps with digestion and the easy movement of food through the digestive system and helps prevent complications including constipation.
