From fruity snacks to nutritious bars, your kids will enjoy these tasty ideas.

1- Animal chips:

Use these animal – shaped chips, and bake it for your kids. This will seem more appealing and more fun for them to eat it!

2- Funky fruits:

If you are looking for a fun way to make your kids eat more fruits, this idea will work pretty much! Just slice two pieces of fruit that are relatively the same size and alternately stack the pieces, as shown in the picture.

 

 

3- Popcorn:

Prepare popcorn in advance for your kids, and put them in an appealing bag or closed cartons, same as when they go to watch a movie

You can add few pieces of candies in the bag, so that they get surprised with a random sweet taste ;)

 

 

 

4- Apple bites:

Well you need to be creative! Don’t think that this might be hard for you!

That’s so simple! Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter, then use almonds for the  teeth.

 

5- Carrot fingers:

Cut and design the carrots. Prepare a tasty dip for them, like cream cheese, labneh, yogurt or any salty dip they usually love. You can use a small pot where you can put the fingers and the dip together or just put the dip in a small pot, and the carrots  in a small bag on the side. Choose the most convenient option!

 

6- The animal bagel:

This is a very nutritious snack and even can work as a breakfast. Spread the cream cheese on the cut bagel, and set some crunchy biscuits around it with a pepper crown.

The combination of bagel, cream cheese and vegetables makes it a special and nutritious treat!

 

7- Wheat crackers with low-fat ranch or with hummus dressing:

Children love anything they can dip!

whole wheat crackers are perfect and nutritious  accompaniments for dips. 
Put some low-fat ranch dressing in a small pot, or make a batch of nutritious hummus as well!

 

 

8- Granola bars:

 

These bars are super nutritious! Plus they are considered as  sweet.  They provide your kids with the needed fiber that comes from the nuts and the oats.

You can add a low-fat milk in the school box so they can have it with the bar! So now this is extra calcium!

So as you noticed, it is possible to make fruits, vegetables, low fat dairy products and whole grains appealing to your kids.

Don’t forget to concentrate on the breakfast as it is the most important meal to have. Then after that, let them choose their snacks after you provide them with the healthy options they can take. Your kids get to choose their snacks, and you get to ensure that they’re eating healthy.

So now everyone is happy!! :D
