Easy, Go-To Snacks for Kids


Jeanne Muchnick, "America's Dinner Mom," offers parents a list of easy and healthy snack ideas that will appease hungry little ones.

  • Naturally Nora (think all-natural Betty Crocker) has a full line of cake, frosting, and brownie mixes made with no artificial ingredients - inspired by a mom! (www.naturallynora.com)
  • Tortilla roll-ups: Spread a tortilla with peanut butter and jelly, then roll up into a log and cut into inch-long pieces. Or use crabmeat to make your own California wrap - crab's low in carbs, calories, and fat, but high in protein. (Since I'm originally from Maryland, crabmeat is big at our house.)
  • Smoothies: Blend one cup of milk with two cups of any combination of fruit or berries. For a dairy-free option, use soy milk or orange juice.
  • Hard-boiled eggs: I always have them on-hand in fridge. An easy eat-on-the-go protein.
  • Make-your-own trail mix: Toss one cup of cornflakes or Chex cereal with ½-cup raisins, ¼-cup almonds or peanuts, and one cup of mini crackers.
  • Popcorn.
  • Cheese (melt on tortilla or muffin). I love the new flavors of Laughing Cow.
  • Celery with raisins, aka "ants on a log": Spread cream cheese or peanut butter in the groove of a celery stalk and top with raisins.
  • Yogurt sundae: Spruce up plain yogurt with berries, sliced peaches, and crunchy cereal flakes, nuts, or seeds.
  • Pumpkin seeds: A perfect fall idea! Toast or roast in your oven and salt or spice to taste. The shells are edible and are a good source of fiber.
