Back To School – Kids Snacks – Fall River, NS

Kids and Snacks:
What are the best snacks to keep on hand for hungry kids? You want to choose nutritious snack foods — those that are high in fiber and low in fat — but convenience and your
child’s preferences are important factors too.
Your child will be more likely to eat a healthy snack if it’s tasty and easy to make. Keep in mind that kids’ appetites and eating habits vary; what your child likes may not appeal
to another child. The most important thing is to choose a nutritious snack that you can both agree on.
Here are some quick, healthy and nutrient-rich snacks that you and your child may want to chew over:
Low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese and yogurt (regular or frozen).
Fat-free pudding snacks.
Fresh fruits and vegetables.
Fruit canned in juice or water.
Frozen juice bars.
Sandwiches made with whole-grain bread, lean meat and reduced-fat or fat-free
Chips (baked, not fried).
Bagels (preferably whole-grain).
Dry whole-grain cereals (Cheerios, Honey Nut Shredded Wheat, Quaker
As a general guideline, it’s OK for kids to eat a healthy snack every three to four hours.
Children should snack only if they’re hungry, though — not because they are feeling
bored or craving a certain food. Discourage snacking right before mealtimes. Balance all
eating with a bit of physical activity.
Talk to one of your Fall River Guardian Pharmacists about healthy eating for your child.
