- Popcorn. Cheap, easy to make, kids love watching the popcorn pop, and very healthy if you don't put anything on it.
- Fruit. I like to have fruit easily accessible for kids in the fridge - bananas, strawberries, a bowl of grapes snipped into little bunches, apples and pears (if your kids eat whole fruit), blueberries, etc.
- Crackers and cheese. Maybe not the healthiest option but always popular with kids and miles better than chips.
- Try carrots and celery cut into strips with some dip. I need to do this one more often to get them eating raw vegies!
- Cup of milk and milo. This is my fall-back after school when they are starving and need to get something into their tummies quick smart!
- Eggs. Boiled and cold are always popular with my boys, and are packed with nutrients which is fantastic.
- Yogurt. We love those bulk tubs you get with the fruit sitting on top. Yum.
- Hummus and crackers. This is on my list to try, a friend recommended it and it was something to be honest I hadn't thought of giving my children.
- Home-made cakes and biscuits. I know that these aren't healthy as such, but at least they aren't filled with chemicals and (excuse the language) crap like store-bought stuff.
- Dried fruit. My kids (even the baby) love dried fruit. Apricots, apple, peaches, you name it we love it (they are not so fussed on the freeze-dried fruit though).
What snacks do your kids like? I'd love to hear about them and get some new ideas!
