3. Fruit Smoothies This is a super healthy snack to get plenty of nutrients and antioxidants. Purchase some organic fruit or vegetables and place it all together in a blender with some low fat yogurt and honey and you have a terrific organic snack for any time of the day or night. Banana honey and vanilla make a fantastic combo. 4. Rye bread and cream cheese Organic snacks don t always need to be a tiny portions of food. If you feel like a sandwich you can have some wheat bread toasted or not with some cream cheese. 5. Olives Olives are also really healthy snacks and the green and black ones are both equally as good for you - just don t eat too many. Olives have lots of essential fatty acids in them which are great for your body. Everyone loves snacks. There are even kids that say "snack" is their favorite meal of the day. While some laugh at this it shouldn t be taken so lightly. Snacks can be really important parts of a child or adult s diet. Snacks give your body an energy boost throughout the day and they can help maintain your weight because you will be eating less at big meals. Eating less at main meals and having snacks in between will help your metabolism and you will process food faster when you eat. Healthy snacking has a lot of benefits. Choosing fruit yogurt granola bars vegetables and whole wheat grains are better choices than pre-made snacks by cookie and chip companies. The benefits of healthy snacking are that these snacks provide a lot of nutrients and vitamins that many people need but take for granted. They are good sources of energy. Also they provide fiber to help cleanse the body again making your bodily systems and functions more efficient. For your children one of the major benefits of healthy snacking is that it increases and builds their immune systems. This will mean less medical bills for you! Try giving your children fresh fruit vegetables like carrots and celery yogurt cheese and nuts. These snacks are not only healthier for your children but they directly address needed food groups your children should be taking in everyday. Keep your kids away from potato chips candy and sugary cookies. These types of snacks usually boost children with energy but send them crashing after a while.
Snacking more often throughout the day has dieters eating more calories than they realize. This is not to say that if you re wanting to lose weight you shouldn t snack. You should. Carefully planned healthy snacks are a smart strategy when it comes to trying to drop those pounds and keep your appetite in check. Snacks do help manage those awful pangs of hunger and keep you from giving in to temptation. Just choose your snacks and the time of day you enjoy them with care. Go for foods that are low in calories (between 100 and 200 is perfect) and loaded with nutrients. This is what makes fruits and veggies such obvious (and popular) choices for anyone attempting to lose weight. Grapes and carrots (or even frozen peas and corn) are particularly good options low in calories but loaded with vitamins minerals and fiber.

You would want them to have a burst of healthy energy so they can go run off and really enjoy being a child. That s the good thing about snacks. You don t want to give them a full meal just a light snack in-between so they will have enough energy to play and run around and do stuff that kids usually do. CHEESE Another snack that could be added to the lunchbox is fresh cheese. I don t mean the one wrapped up in plastic I meant the one gained from real milk. That is full of proteins and it gives children a great energy boost and is very filling as well. I m saying a couple of cheese cubes will do along perhaps with a couple of crackers and probably some grapes and nuts surrounding them as well. You ll find that they will really truly enjoy this snack. NUTS Now I mentioned nuts however you have to be careful with them because some children are allergic to them. But you know your own child. If you do have friends over you might want to find out first whether or not they are allergic to nuts before serving it to them.
