All that your children will be left with are the sodium and fats found in the snacks. Many of these store bought snacks are also salty which can dehydrate you and/or your child It can be difficult to keep children away from the yummy ready to eat snacks so look for good alternatives. If your child likes candy and chocolate because they have a sweet tooth turn them on to eating fresh fruit or fruit juice Popsicles. If they like chips and cookies get them some unsalted nuts or oatmeal cookies. Keeping your children on healthy snacks lessen their risks for diabetes heart disease cancer obesity and other serious illnesses. These benefits will be helpful to them for the rest of their lives. Snacks and snack food have always played an important part in American food culture. Frozen treats like ice creams candy and chocolate sweet snacks chips and salted snack nuts crackers cookies and even small cakes - you name it typical Americans will eat it for a snack. Americans really enjoy their snacks which are produced to be inexpensive accessible easy to eat and durable. But not healthy... And fattening. And it really is typical American custom. In Europe you won t too much people pulling out small plastic bags and eating in all and every occasion. Only lately there is a (mostly true) perception in the United States that snack food contribute to the national epidemic of obesity and that snacks lack nutritional value. If you are among those lucky people who can eat only three or for meals a day with no snacks that s great.
If you live a busy life like us there s absolutely no excuse on why you can t do them as well. We all get busy and we all get waylaid and we may forget to do a bit of shopping from time to time getting us stuck with nothing on the cupboard. We have to get clever put our imaginations on overdrive and make something up from scratch. Kids usually like to have something fulfilling. Big kids do too. So instead of reaching for the chocolate bar or the chips to tide you over until the next meal these are some great healthy alternatives instead: FRUITS and VEGETABLES. That s right. They are the obvious answers and they make great and healthy snacks. They work very well in my household. The kids love them because they are presented in creative and enticing ways. VEGETABLE CHIPS Some of the best snacks we have at home include snow peas green string beans carrots and celery. There s a little trick that you have to make sure of before you offer them. That is they have to be FRESH and CRISPY.

It is great for kids and for you. There are no additives no worries about salt and sugar and no oils or fats in them as well. AVOCADO and CRACKERS Another great snack that we d love to share is avocado and crackers. Not everyone may like plain avocado though. However if you get some rice crackers and put some avocado on it similar to guacamole you lay on the avocado nice and soft then you put a slice of tomato on it some cracked pepper and then a little bit of salt that my friend is one great snack. It is great for morning or afternoon snack and even for school. Even the big kids will love them as well. They are really filling and I do enjoy them as well. It really does wonders. BANANA Now another great snack that I find especially for the lunch box is a banana. It is full of potassium and is a great source of energy especially for your children. They are a really great snack food. That s what you would want for your kids.
