Easy & Healthy Snacks for Children

A snack should include a balance of healthy foods. A snack is not a time to eat highly processed food. Big chunks of any food are a choking hazard, especially for children under the age of 4.  Cut raw veggies and fruits into small pieces. Nuts, peanuts, popcorn, large amounts of sticky foods are also choking hazards. Choose a combination of fresh fruit, dried fruit, vegetables, dairy products, whole grain breads/cereals and lean proteins to make snacks. Download our recipes for Easy Snacks for Children.
