Taking Care of Snacking for kid’s at Home
With the COVID-19 situation, our kids are experiencing the longest summer vacation of all times. While they may not get a lot of time to play outdoors, there are a lot of activities that can keep them occupied.
From online classes to indoor games your kids will figure how to shake off that extra energy some way or the other. It also means that their trips to the kitchen will be frequent in search of tasty snacks.
As parents, it is your responsibility to ensure that they remain active and healthy. Mentioned here are some tricks you can follow to take care of their snacking needs to satisfy cravings without letting them fall prey to the temptation of junk foods.
Healthy Snacks for Your Kid
- If you are looking at healthy snacking options, fruits are the real deal. Hence, keep a fruit bowl with washed apples, grapes, oranges and bananas on the dining table to keep it easily accessible to your children.
- You may also make salad eating interesting by topping them with cheese, berries and nutty granola.
- Always have a jar of nuts on their study desk so it’s always at an arm’s length for them to munch on, rather than taking that trip to the pantry where they will be tempted to snack on fried and unhealthy junk food.
