What child doesn’t come home from school starved? Are you prepared with healthy snack choices?

 Healthy Snack Ideas for Kids, Parents, and Teachers

Perhaps you have a shelf in the refrigerator or a place in the pantry or other area where kids have easy access to healthy snacks. An effort needs to be made, though, to have healthy snacks available.

You control what you have in the house for food. You’re the one deciding what your child is eating at home. Is it going to be some quick packaged food with limited food value or a good quality appetizing snack they can prepare themselves?

For help in deciding what to have for healthy snacks, I’ve developed an entire collection of snack ideas for kids, “How to Solve Your Child’s Munchie Time the Healthy Way – with Easy Recipes and Ideas.” These are food ideas children can prepare themselves, or if very young, with adult help.

This guide to after-school snacks includes lots of healthy and nutritious choices. As eating healthy is of such national concern, chances are your kids are being taught at school about making good choices. This ebook guides them in making good snack choices at home.

In this ebook you will find foods that can be prepared quickly so that the snacks are ready after school or anytime kids get hungry. This prevents the usual reaction of reaching for a quick fix of high calorie, high fat and/or carbohydrate foods.

I know that even very young children love to get involved in planning and preparing their own snacks. And they are more apt to eat the food if they have prepared it. Preparing their own healthy snacks gives children responsibility for what they eat. They also know what goes into the food.

Teachers as well as parents will appreciate this collection of snack ideas. There are many ideas for snacks that can be prepared without the stove or microwave. Teachers and parents really appreciate this.

Food is meant to nourish and sustain  – not only to fill up. I invite you to go to healthykidseatingtips.com and order your copy of “How to Solve Your Child’s Munchie Time the Healthy Way – with Easy Recipes and Ideas” right now right here and start helping children have better and healthier snacks.
