Our Favorite Healthy Snacks for Hungry Little Kids

Are your kids getting bored with apple slices and Goldfish crackers? Check out these creative and nutritious ideas for mid-afternoon munching. (We’ll even help you get your kids eating kale. Kale!)

Fun Fruit Kebabs
Naturally sweet fruit is a no-brainer for snacks. Kids love it, it’s portable, and it provides much-needed fiber and antioxidants. Make it fun again by threading halved strawberries, halved grapes and small chunks of pineapple and melon on a frilly toothpick, suggests Liz Weiss, coauthor with Janice Newell Bissex of No Whine with Dinner and the website MealMakeoverMoms.com. (They’re great for kids age four and up -- for younger kids, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends cutting food into bite-size pieces no larger than ½ inch). Pump up the nutritional quotient even more with cubes of low-fat cheese or baked chicken. “The end result is playful and colorful, so it will really appeal to a toddler,” she says.
