Healthy snack options for your kids' school tiffin

These nutritious snack and ideas are quick, easy, and delicious!
Try these healthy snack ideas for your kid's school food options to keep them fit and energetic:
  • Make it a habit to carry fresh vegetables and fruit with you. Easy-to-carry options include apples, pears, bananas, baby carrots, tomatoes and grapes.
  • Try processed fruit! Canned fruit cups in water and dried fruit are not as fresh, but they are still healthy and nutritious snacks.
  • Prepare a portion-controlled nutritious trail mix with nuts, whole grain cereal and plenty of dried fruits like raisins, apricots and prunes.
  • Pack a kiddie size yogurt. They provide a good source of protein and calcium. If possible, choose one with active live bacterial cultures (probiotics) to maximize its health benefits.
Eat healthy , Stay Healthy!

  1. Making healthy food fun for kids is GENIUS suggestion. I don't know how many people will have the time to create the hilarious sandwich sculptures you've made every morning, a healthy meal that was a tenth as entertaining would readily be consumed by most kids! Genius!!
