Easy Healthy Snack Ideas for Kids – Dietitian Recommended

Back to school season is in full swing and if you’re a parent of young children, it’s back to the snack-packing grind. That means it’s time to start thinking about healthy snack ideas for kids that don’t require a ton of time to prepare, and, obviously, that the kids will actually eat.

What I find really helpful is to come up with a list of snacks my kids will eat and pin it on the fridge. This way, each day, I can glance at the list and pick a few items, instead of racking my brains each evening when it’s time to pack the next day’s snacks. The list below can help give you some ideas to include on your own list.

The Idea Behind the List

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a bag of pretzels for snack, but I choose to focus on healthy snack ideas for kids that are actively filling nutritional needs, rather than just addressing hunger.
