Healthy Fruit Snack Ideas Kids Love
Most kids cannot resist a bowl full of fresh fruit. Why not try some fruits that they have never tried.

And for special treats, you could help the kids to make chocolate-dipped fruits or banana popsicles.
Smoothies for Kids
Smoothies are an awesome alternative to milkshakes and are super easy to make healthy.
My son is very fussy with fruit, but he cannot get enough when I blend fruit such as strawberries and blueberries with some milk! So, yes, smoothies make easy healthy snacks that kids love.
Use yogurt, fresh fruit, and milk, and whip up a smoothie in the blender in seconds.
Older children will enjoy making their own smoothies and younger ones will still enjoy choosing their favorite fruits and helping prepare them.
Getting Kids to Eat Vegetables
Children are more likely to eat vegetables if they grow them themselves. I know, right, that’s a little hard to believe, but it’s true.
Gardening is an excellent thing to do as a family and a positive way to spend quality time with your kids. With all the delicious vegetables you have grown and picked, why not prepare a snack tray with veggies and dip.
Healthy Popsicle Snacks for Kids
This is the easiest snack to prepare! Just use store-bought popsicle makers or containers and fill them with 100% fruit juice. Freeze them, and don’t forget to stick a Popsicle stick in it if it doesn’t have one already.
They’re healthy, and you can make many at a time and in various flavors.
