Between school, sports and hanging out with friends, your kids rely on you to provide them with snacks that are not only enjoyable, but that will give them the fuel they need to keep going. As your children gear up to get into the back-to-school mindset, consider offering them snacks to help them stay sharp and focused throughout their day.
Here are some tips to providing smart snacks for your kids:
Keep it simple
Provide light snacks that are easy to eat and give the perfect boost of energy. Berries are fresh and sweet and don't require much preparation. Cheese and multi-grain crackers offer a great mix of calcium and fibre and are a child favourite. Veggies like carrots and celery can be prepared the night before and will help keep your kids full until meal time.
Make it fun
Your kids look forward to their snacks so keep them excited. Having options like Nestlé Fav'rites, an assortment of snack-size Kit Kat, Aero, Coffee Crisp and Smarties that are made with natural flavours in a peanut-free facility, are the perfect supplement to any meal. With only 40 to 60 calories per bar, consider mixing it up by surprising them with a new favourite every day.
You never know how your child's day is going to end up. The key is to always be prepared by having snacks handy. It's always a great idea to have snacks that are non-perishable and easily stored in your pantry, making it easy to include them in your child's knapsack even as they walk out the door.
With these tips, providing quick and wholesome snacks for your kids will be a breeze.
