Children love to snack but they usually turn their noses up when it comes to healthy snacks or any food that is good for them.

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.
A variety of fruit is bound to appeal to even the pickiest eaters. Take the kids shopping and let them pick out fruit that looks interesting to them.
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 actually super easy to make healthy.
My son is very fussy with fruit but when I blend fruit such as strawberries and blueberries with some milk, he cannot get enough! 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 it.
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 its 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 that you have grown and picked why not prepare a snack tray with veggies and dip.
