10 healthy snacks for kids
Does it seem impossible to convince your child to eat healthy and nutritious snacks? With the right ingredients and recipes, they can make healthy snacks for kids that are so delicious that your kids will not even notice they eat something that’s good for them. The trick? Use healthy ingredients, but prepare them in a kid-friendly way. For example, try these tasty (and, above all, healthy!) Recipe ideas that we discovered on food blogs:
Chocolate ice cream with avocado
Ice cream may sound like candy, but if you make it at home with fresh ingredients, it can be healthy too. To prepare an ice cream machine is not necessary! The freezer does it too! Recipes like this vegan chocolate-flavored avocado ice cream from “Armor and Potato Sack” are easy to prepare, taste great, and are rich in healthy ingredients.
Make snack time popcorn
Popcorn is better than its reputation! At least if you do without the preservative-containing microwave version and prepare the popcorn yourself on a pan with a lid or in a popcorn maker. The popcorn can then refine your children with self-selected ingredients. Try unusual combinations and add, for example, dried cranberries or spicy herbs.
If you offer smaller portions and an assortment of choices, you’ll also be persuasive to tasting new foods. Put healthy ingredients, such as chopped vegetables, fruits or a handful of nuts, in a lunch box with various separate compartments. Your children will enjoy eating through different subjects.
Inspirations for colorful lunch boxes for children can be found on our Pinterest board “Lunchbox + Lunch for Kids”.
Colorful berry yogurt
Fruits such as blueberries and raspberries are a wonderfully nutritious snack for children who skillfully camouflage themselves as candy. Mix in a key the fresh berries with natural yogurt, finished is a healthy (but still sweet!) Snack for dessert.
Chips from sweet potatoes
Is your child a real chip fan? Forget the deep fryer and prefer to rely on nutritious ingredients such as sweet potatoes or apples that are rich in vitamins. These crispy sweet potato chips from “Healthy on Green” satisfy the craving for crisps, but are much healthier!
Frozen yogurt drops
Children love funny and colorful snacks. Yoghurt in your child’s favorite flavor is great for that! Try the frozen yoghurt drops from baby biscuits! In no time at all (plus time to freeze) you can make healthy drops from yoghurt, which are guaranteed to have disappeared in the blink of an eye!
Dips for vegetable sticks
Dips like hummus and guacamole are a protein-rich snack that keeps children longer and keeps them from nibbling on something. With delicious dips you can try delicious vegetables. Serve vegetables such as carrot sticks that can be dipped in hummus or cucumber sticks that taste great with guacamole.
Banana ice cream
Yes, ice cream can be healthy – as long as it is not a real ice cream! For the banana ice cream with only one ingredient of dariadaria you really only need one ingredient: ripe bananas. The consistency and taste of this banana ice cream are almost indistinguishable from “real” ice cream, so your children will hardly notice that they are eating plain fruit.
Fruit and vegetable smoothies
Smoothies are a tasty way to bring fruit and vegetables to picky eaters. At home you can make it with fruit or even spinach or kale. For a super-power milkshake after school, mix a smoothie made from frozen bananas, milk, kale, cocoa powder, a splash of agave syrup and, if desired, a tablespoon of nut butter.
Some snacks that your kids like to eat, such as cereal bars or protein bars, may seem like a healthy alternative, but in reality they’re full of sugar and artificial ingredients. Make your own muesli bars with healthy ingredients! How about, for example, the “Tiny Spoon” banana date cereal bars?
