Happy Snackers!

by |

Your kids can eat all day long, right?  Lucky them!  But you want them to eat healthy, right?  So be smart about it.  Designate an area in your fridge that’s THEIR ZONE and keep healthy snacks for the picking there.  Do the same with your pantry.  Put the hi-carb unhealthy stuff on a higher shelf and limit that option to be used sparingly.

Now, for that space in your fridge?  Nothing better for kids than fruit and cheese.  Choose any cheese your child likes and buy in a block to save.  Cut it into bite-sized cubes.  Purchase seedless redorgreen grapes (you can even sneak on a coupleof cherry tomatoes!) Purchase bamboo skewersat Target and skewer the treats.  For the little ones, be sure you cut your grapes in half!
