When we’re hungry and you just don’t know what to eat, we tend to eat mass amounts of foods that aren’t necessarily good for you. That’s why it’s good to have a list on hand of easy, healthy snacks that, with preparation, can be put together in a snap.

Eating real food as a snack is an great way to boost your child’s diet. After a while of choosing item’s off of the list, you can usually narrow them down to about 15 that your family agrees are their favorites. Once at that point, you can still throw in a few surprises along the way, just to try again for maybe snacks that could be healthier than their favorites.

Here is the list of super easy snacks:

  1. Apple
  2. Banana
  3. Berries
  4. Pear
  5. Carrots
  6. Grapes
  7. Celery
  8. Ants on a log
  9. Broccoli or Cauliflower
  10. Olives (a great protein source!)
  11. Whole grain crackers
  12. Popcorn (not microwave popcorn)
  13. Trail Mix
  14. Pretzels
  15. Soft Pretzels 
  16. Toast (homemade bread)
  17. Cereal 
  18. Granola Bars
  19. Peanuts
  20. Cashews
  21. Almonds

  35. Kale Chips
  36. Carrot and Sweet Potato Chips
  37. Cornbread

I try to get my nuts, fruits, and vegetables organic and in-season, or homegrown which can usually only be in-season. As far as the homemade items go, I generally use whole wheat flour in the recipes. I hope this is helpful. :-D
