Eat Clean Snacks for Kids…and Mom!
Back to school means busier kids (which means hungrier kids) and a new routine for Mom. In the name of saving time and your wits, planning meals and snacks ahead of time becomes a renewed priority. Keep these 20 Eat-Clean snacks in mind so you are prepared the next time you hear the familiar cries of “Mom, what’s for dinner tonight?” or “I’m hungry! Do we have anything to eat?” Of course, these Clean snacks are so delicious that mom may want to whip one up for herself during one of those rare quiet moments. Go ahead, I won’t tell! LOL
MORNING SNACKS FOR ELEMENTARY-SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN I remember when my children were itty bity, they would wake up incredibly early. Sometimes we would have breakfast so early that they were hungry again before school even began! These five snacks are perfect for the car-ride to school or great options for morning recess.
“MIDNIGHT” SNACKS FOR TEENS The teen years are crucial in terms of your child’s development – he or she is growing (physically and mentally) at an accelerated rate, sleeping a lot, and sometimes keeping odd hours. These five snacks are so fun and packed with “adult” flavour combinations that your teens will be happy campers no matter what time of day they give ‘em a try!
POST-GAME SNACKS FOR SPORTY TWEENS Team and individual sports is the best way to keep your child active and help them generate a sense of leadership, teamwork, self-esteem and so much more. Tweens (10-12 year olds) are bursting with hormones thanks to puberty, and high intensity sports and extracurricular activities only underscores the importance of providing nutrient-dense foods to nurture and repair their growing bodies. These five protein-packed options are just the ticket!
NUT-FREE & VEGAN SNACKS The growing number of nut allergies has resulted in tree nuts being banned from most schools, so planning nut-free snacks ahead of time is something of daily importance to many moms. These five snacks are satisfying and tasty – no nuts required. Added bonus: all vegan!
