Snacks offer extra calories and yes, the reality is that most snacks are often too sugary. Regardless of this, snacks can still be perfectly good for your kids—of course within limits.

Kids, particularly the young ones have really erratic eating habits and it’s the healthy snacks that will fill those nutrition needs. One other benefit of snacks is that they can keep your kids’ energy up, making up for skipped or skimpy breakfasts and offer fuel before and after school sports or similar activities. I prepare snacks for my kids and they really enjoy them. Want to prepare some for your kids too? Here’s how:
