Let's face it we all know what the kids are like when they get home from school; hungry, hungry, hungry. There are so many snacks on the market these days but what is a healthy snack the kids will actually like? What will keep the kids going until dinner time?

Watermelon Baller
Use this kid friendly watermelon baller for ice cold snacks

Depending on the season watermelon and rockmelon is a great snack for kids. You can eat it freshly cut into slices or use a watermelon baller and freeze the watermelon or rockmelon for a yummy ice cold snack. Why not include your kids in the preparation of healthy snack foods? Kids love to be involved, make it fun and they will want to help out in the kitchen. You never know, you could have a Junior Master Chef on your hands.

Vegetable dippers
Veggie sticks with avocado dip or hommus

Eating healthy is definately a choice, and teaching your kids that they have the option to choose healthy nutritional foods at a young age is a valuable lesson. Not only will it benefit their bodies physically, it will also impact their emotional and mental ability to function in life.

A little sweet now and then is a treat and let's face it, chocolate tastes good, but it's really the sugar we love. Train a child in the way to go and when he is old he will not turn from it. If you would like to read more about the nutritional benefits of choosing healthy foods please visit Fresh for Kids.

Mandarins are a great healthy kids snack. They are easy for them to peel by themselves and their small size makes them less intimidating than a big apple or orange. My kids love the Imperial Mandarins because they don't have any seeds.

I love how you put such healthy snacks in your article. So many kids foods are full of sugar, artificial flavours and colours. I hope people use these ideas, they’re wonderful. Great article, thanks very much.
