My favorite go-to snacks are apple slices, roasted seaweed (my kids are total addicts) and fruit "chips" like dehydrated blueberries, strawberries and bananas. I feel better when the only ingredient on the label is the fruit itself, and the kids think they're getting a special treat. Win-win :)
goldfish and string cheese!
yogurt and fruit snacks. Also peanuts
Dried fruit or dried kale.
Seaweed snack (made with olive oil not canola oil), Larabars, macadamia nuts, pistachios, kale chips, salmon or beef jerky, deli meats (no nitrates, msg, or other artificial ingredients), apples and almond butter, guacamole and cut up veggies, hard boiled eggs, rice crackers and cheese, strawberries with fresh whipped cream (organic not ultra pasteurized), whole milk organic yogurt, trail mix with unsweetened dried fruit, coconut flakes, and dark chocolate chips, and sushi.
I keep refined flours and sugars out of their diet as much as possible and make sure snacks offer healthy fats and proteins.
A banana. It's portable. It doesn't require utensils. And it's healthy.
We freeze too ripe to eat bananas and then make a frozen banana, peanut butter, milk and chocolate chip shake. Perfect for after school or even breakfast. The frozen banana gives it the creaminess of ice-cream without the sugar or calories.
