HEALTHY SNACKS FOR KIDS: FUN LUNCH BOX TIPS & IDEAS

When it comes to healthy food, kids are picky eaters. Most parents feel guilty knowing they should feed their children healthy foods, but simply don’t know how to do it.

Making healthy snacks for kids’ lunches and filling their lunch boxes with food they’ll actually want to eat is a great way to introduce fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes into your child’s diet.

Kids love to snack

Findings by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) from the latest survey on increasing caloric intake showed that today’s children snack twice as much as kids 20 years ago. Like it or not, snacks have become an important part of daily diet. Children take in more calories than ever before, yet their basic vitamin and mineral requirements necessary for healthy physical and psychological development are not being met.

The trick is to make healthy snack food for kids; let them enjoy treats but enable them to eat well. If you make it visually appealing as well as tasty, your kids will probably eat even those veggies they usually resist and reject.
