Healthy snacks are a great way get your child(ren) to eat better without much effort. Here are 5 snacks my boys request often.
*Donut Holes - This snack takes literally 5 minutes to make and requires no baking-Donut holes are a very healthy snack because the ingredients are dates, dried pineapple, almonds, and coconut flakes.
*Carrot Sticks or other Fresh Vegetables with Hummus-You can buy your own hummus or make it in about 5 minutes
*Chickpea Popcorn -This is one of Alvin's favorite snacks- You just toss cooked chickpeas with a tbsp of olive oil, season well with cumin, paprika, and garlic powder and bake on a cookie sheet for about 25 minutes on 400º F. We call it chickpeas popcorn because my kids said the texture reminds them of popcorn.
*Fresh Fruit & Almond Butter or Peanut Butter-Kids love to dip their food in sauces and spreads-give them a few of their favorite fruit options on a platter with their spread of choice
*Homemade Granola- No baking required-This recipe also takes about 5 minutes to prepare and is a lot cheaper (and healthier) than the boxed version.
