Healthy, Low-Sugar Snacks for Kids During Spring Break

Spring break is a time for kids to have fun and relax, but it can also be a time when they are more prone to unhealthy snacking. As a parent, you want to make sure your children are fueling their bodies with nutritious food that will keep them satisfied and energized throughout the day. Here are some tips for creating low-sugar snacks that are both healthy and delicious.

  1. Fruit and Yogurt Parfait This snack is easy to make and can be customized to your child's favorite fruit and yogurt flavors. Simply layer yogurt with sliced fruit and granola in a cup or bowl. Use plain or vanilla yogurt, and avoid those with added sugars. Berries, such as strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, are a good source of antioxidants and fiber and are naturally low in sugar.

  2. Veggie and Hummus Sticks This snack is a tasty way to get your child to eat their veggies. Cut carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, and celery into sticks, and serve with a side of hummus for dipping. Hummus is made from chickpeas, which are high in protein and fiber, and it provides a creamy, satisfying texture without added sugars.

  3. Peanut Butter and Banana Slices Peanut butter and bananas are a classic combination that provides a healthy source of protein and potassium. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on a slice of whole-grain bread, and top with sliced bananas. This snack is filling and satisfying, and the natural sugars in the bananas provide a sweet taste without added sugar.

  4. Trail Mix Trail mix is a great snack for kids on the go. Mix a combination of whole grain cereal, nuts, dried fruit, and dark chocolate chips. Look for dried fruit that is unsweetened or minimally sweetened, and choose dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids, which is naturally lower in sugar.

  5. Ants on a Log This classic snack is a fun and healthy option for kids. Fill celery sticks with peanut butter, and top with raisins to look like ants on a log. The celery provides a crunchy texture, while the peanut butter and raisins provide protein, fiber, and natural sweetness.

In conclusion, spring break is a great time to encourage healthy snacking habits in your children. By offering low-sugar snacks that are both nutritious and delicious, you can help keep their energy levels up and their taste buds satisfied.
