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.
They really enjoy them and these snacks are also easier to place on the fridge or on their lunchboxes when they go to school. RAW (FINGER) VEGETABLES These are only some of the basic snacks. There are still so much more. For instance have you ever tried eating a raw asparagus stem? It is really nice and crispy. Especially if it s fresh and young it s really quite sweet. The other thing with raw foods is if you chop them really small you have to keep them away from open air so they don t go all brown-looking and horrible. They are really tasty. Another one we use is sweet potato. You will find that you will really enjoy the taste once you ve chopped it up into little pieces. The younger ones are better tasting of course. They are low GI foods and are really good for power-packed energy.
