Healthy Snack Ideas for Your Children

Who says getting healthy after the holidays is only for adults? I find it really easy to just give my kids whatever is quick and easy and whatever they will actually eat. This doesn’t always result in the healthiest meals, and I worry about how much nutrition they are actually getting. I decided to make it my mission to find fun, healthy snacks that I know my kids will eat, but that will also be fast! These can even be made ahead of time, so you can grab them and….GO!


Apple Cookies 
Apple cookies make the perfect snack: Crisp juicy apple slices, smothered with peanut butter, then topped with shredded coconut, walnuts and chocolate chips.

Ingredients
  • 1 apple
  • ¼ cup peanut butter or Nutella
  • ¼ cup almonds, sliced
  • ¼ cup walnuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
Directions: Slice apple into thin rings and remove core. Spread peanut butter over one side of ring. Top with almonds, walnuts, coconut, and chocolate chips.

Frozen Yogurt Buttons 
These little frozen yogurt buttons are cold and creamy. They are the perfect after-school snack.

Ingredients
• Any flavor of nonfat Greek yogurt (I used three different flavors.)

Directions 
Fit a small zip top plastic bag over a cup. Spoon in the yogurt. Snip one corner of the bag and pipe yogurt onto cookie sheets. Place in freezer and freeze for one hour or until completely hard and frozen. TIP: For easy removal, line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scrape off using an offset spatula or a regular metal spatula. Place in an airtight container. Store in the freezer until ready to serve.

Warm Banana Rollups Bananas are a naturally sweet fruit and combined with a warm tortilla, smooth cream cheese and a little honey and cinnamon make a delicious breakfast, snack or dessert!

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 medium bananas
  • 3 medium tortillas, whole wheat
Directions 
Mix cream cheese, honey and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread on the tortilla. Place a whole banana on the tortilla and roll up. Place on a hot griddle or pan. Grill until golden on both sides. Slice into small rounds and serve with toothpicks. You can also slice in half and eat it like a burrito.

  15. Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. the best homeowners insurance
