Children need snacks to fuel their busy bodies and minds. Healthy snacks help kids get important nutrients and provide necessary calories and fuel for learning in school, sports, and other busy activities. Snacks should be small and nutritious – just enough to keep kids going between regular meals. Snacks should be portion controlled, low in sugar and preferably high in fiber. Good examples of healthy snacks are: fruits, all-natural fruit snacks, whole grain crackers, cheese, popcorn, nuts, raw veggies, peanut/almond butter, and low-fat/fat-free dairy products such as yogurts and milk.
