FOOD & DINING Healthy Snacks for Kids By Stefanie Maglio

Parents know that getting their kids to eat healthy is not an easy task. Children tend to go for the chips and candy, while parents would much rather their children pick a healthier choice such as fruits or vegetables. There are ways for kids to enjoy a snack that their parents are happy with as well. Here are some tasty, yet healthy snacks to try at home: • Celery sticks with cream cheese and raisins (ants on a log) the cream cheese can be substituted with peanut butter • Apple slices with peanut butter • Strawberries dipped in yogurt as a substitute for chocolate • Organic granola bars • Fruit snacks. Be careful when choosing a brand, some consist of mainly sugar and artificial flavoring. • A homemade fruit cup • Raw vegetables (broccoli, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, etc.) with low fat ranch dressing as a dip • Homemade trail mix is also an option, but it is important to be aware of nut allergies. One of these snacks is bound to appeal to your child, making snack time a little less stressful, more fun for the child, and assuring for the parent. Happy snacking!
