Snack Attack!

Posted on October 19, 2015 08:38 am

Each year the average American eats 405 savory snacks, 366 sweet snacks and 357 healthier snacks. Since 2006, healthier snacks like fruit, nuts and protein bars are up 14% while sweet snacks are down 6%.

When kids are ravenous after school or soccer practice they should have a choice of healthy snacks. Instead of filling them with empty calories they can choose fun and kid friendly fruit and veggie alternatives such as:

Frozen berries and yogurt

Crisp apple wedges

Frozen green and red grapes

Veggie sticks

Sliced peaches or nectarines

Celery sticks with peanut or almond butter

Kiwi cups

Fresh fruit and cheese cubes

Other crunchy choices include radishes, broccoli spears, cauliflower, zucchini slices and unsalted rice cakes.

Munchy choices include unsalted sunflower seeds, whole grain breads or toast, cherry or grape tomatoes, unsalted almonds or walnuts.

Sweet choices can be baked apples, raisins, dried fruit gelatin, thin slices of angel food cake and unsweetened canned fruit, frozen bananas and grapes.
