I created a snack list for kids to help you see the possibilities. One, that you don’t have to go for chips, cookies and crackers all the time. And two, that meal foods in smaller portions make quite a satisfying snack.

There is quite a variety that can be offered–from soup to nuts, in fact! Check out my list of healthy snacks for kids below.
