Healthy Snack Recipes for Kids

We all want healthy snack recipes for kids. The problem is sometimes getting kids to eat them. The bottom line is, however, if you give them healthy snacks that taste good, they will eat them.

My grandson loves snacks and actually eats some healthy ones along with the normal chips and such. I don't have a problem with that. As long as the bulk of his snacks are on the nutritional side, that's a good thing. He loves to snack on apples and oranges and yes, even broccoli and cauliflower. He doesn't get that from me. :-)

I am going to begin to add some healthy snack recipes for kids on a regular basis and I hope you find they help you get your kids to snack in a healthy manner.



Fruit Toast

Toast some whole wheat bread. Spread low fat whipped cream cheese on it and top it with slices of fruit. Strawberries, peaches, bananas; whatever they like. This is simple but have you ever tried it?

Healthy Muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar (optional)
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup fruit jam

1. First preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
2. Mix dry ingredients except for the brown sugar in a bowl.
3. Combine brown sugar, oil, egg and milk and mix until smooth.
4. Add the mixture to your dry ingredients and mix untilmoistened.
5. Fill 12 greased muffin cups 1/4 full. Spoon 1 tsp. jam over batter and fill each cup 3/4 full with the remaining batter and bake for 15 - 20 minutes.

Baked Tortilla Chips

Spray light coating of cooking oil on 4-5” flour or corn tortillas.
For herb or cheesy chips:Sprinkle Parmesan cheese or herb mix on the tortillas, depending on what your kids like. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges and spread in one layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 8to 10 minutes until they are crispy.To make them on the sweet side, sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar on the tortillas and bake as above.

These are just a few healthy snack recipes for kids. Put on your thinking caps for more snack ideas such as sliced apples dipped in fruit yogurt or graham crackers with peanut butter and bananas.

Krispy Crunchers

Ingredients:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
1/2 cup raisins, mini-chocolate chips or mini-chocolate candies

1. Line a 9x13-inch pan or baking sheet with wax paper so cookies won’t stick.
2. In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar, honey and peanut butter. Stir until well mixed.
3. Stir in cereal, raisins, chips or candies.
4. Using hands or cookie scoop, shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on wax paper.
5. Refrigerate 1 hour. Serve right away or place in tightly covered container in the refrigerator.

My wife was a diabetic for over 40 years until she received a pancreas transplant recently. Healthy food has always been something we strived for and, of course, our menu had to be planned around her needs.
