What are some healthy snack for kids?
Today there are so many products and snacks out there for kids that are filled with sugar and fats that may taste good but they may be harmful to your child’s health. All of these quick to go packaged snacks with high fructose corn syrup and MSG aren’t good for your growing and young child. Making lunches and snacks for you kids everyday can be hard and time consuming which is why we suggest packing all of the snack in baggies on Sunday so they can be ready for the rest of the week.

Healthy Ice Cream
We know that some kids can be picky eaters and want to have ice cream or a popsicle for dessert let me give you a few options to help make your dessert less about sugar and more about taste. Some of these “all fruit” popsicles can actually contain artificial flavors and high trans-fat. Try making smoothies for your children instead, this way you can insure that your children are actually consuming something this is all fruit. They can eat the smoothies as is or you can freeze them and make them into popsicles, along with freezing the smoothies frozen grapes or strawberries can be a delicious treat for kids as well. If you have an ice cube tray try putting some yogurt in the tray along with some fresh fruit such as blueberries or raspberries.
