kid friendly snack ideas

found these kid friendly snack tips on the campbell's website. i am always looking for healthier ways to fend off my little guy's appetite. hope you find them useful as well.

Make it easy for your child to make smart snack choices. Try packing these snacks in lunchboxes, and keep a few available for after school snack attacks.

  • A simple snack of cheese and crackers, with reduced-fat cheese and whole-grain crackers, is always a hit.
  • Popcorn is delicious, crunchy and filling. Pop your own, and skip the butter, or try reduced–fat microwave popcorns.
  • Soup is another great snack for after school, and a good way to hear about your children’s day while they sip away.
  • Dried fruit is a sweet, high-fiber snack for kids and adults alike. Just be sure to check the nutrition content. Some dried fruits (like banana chips) can be high in calories.
  • Snacks like pretzels and Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers are delicious options when kids are craving something crunchy.
  • Try spreading some low-fat cream cheese on a tortilla, fill it with fresh veggies and Pace® salsa, roll it up, and cut it into snack-size pieces.
  • Cut up fresh fruit into chunks and set it out with a small bowl of vanilla yogurt for dipping.
