Quick, Low-Budget, and Healthy Snacks for Kids

Date: March 20, 2017 Author: aspirecharter Categories: Blog



Healthy snacks can be just as fast and easy to give your kids as unhealthy ones.


The next time you stop at the store, grab a few of these quick, healthy and tasty snacks instead of a bag of chips.  


If there’s one thing to take away from all this, remember- you can’t go wrong with fruit! Your little ones have little appetites and that’s why they make little oranges. Halos or Cuties are a very healthy and bite-size treat made with your little cutie in mind. Bananas are also quick and easy to grab, plus you can find them at Walmart and many gas stations too, so you don’t actually have to go grocery shopping to find these fruits.


Why not give your child a snack in his or her favorite color? Jell-O comes in many different colors and it’s not only fun, it’s healthy! Jell-O is great for skin and joints, and is calming. A win-win for parent and child!


What do you get when you mix peanut butter and apples? A delicious protein-filled snack that keeps the doctor away. The mini to-go peanut butter pouches topped with the 2-second apple slicer makes this an ideal quick snack for your kids. Now you have no excuse not to pop this tasty snack in your kids’ lunches. Healthy & fast? We approve.


Mini to-go peanut butter containers and apple slicer are found at any local grocery store. Even Wawa has the containers!


Your child is at an age where everything they eat will affect their body and brain growth. That is why it is so important to give them food that will help them grow big and strong. Foods that have minimum sugar and maximum protein are ideal.


How about string cheese? String cheese contains 0 grams of sugar and 7 grams of protein. And who doesn’t love to tear apart some cheese?


Another wonderful snack that is full of vitamins is plain and simple yogurt. There are tons of varieties to choose from. Although drinkable yogurt for kids such as Danimals or Go-Gurt are easy and fun to eat, it’s best to stick with the regular packages of yogurt to minimize sugar and maximize the benefits when possible.


These are just a couple of healthy snacks that will help influence and develop your child’s healthy eating habits for the future. Happy snacking!
