Thursday Tips: Nutrition Makes Us Tick–5 Healthy Snack Ideas

licorice manNutrition in the foods we eat keeps our brains and bodies working. 

If you have concerns about your child’s nutrition, it can be wonderfully helpful and educational to see a nutritionist or your pediatrician and see if they think it’s a good idea to refer you to a nutritionist.

And because we can all get into snack ruts, here are 5 healthy snack links/ideas to try and take on your next outing!

1. 17 Snacks To Pack In A Mason Jar

2. Banana-Nutella Sushi — or substitute Nutella with any nut butter!

3.Homemade chips: Homemade Baked Sweet Potato Chips or Baked Apple Chips

4. Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups

5. Mini Fruit: I don’t think it’s really called ‘mini fruit’ but that’s what tangerines and those tiny bananas have always looked like to me. These small fruits are the perfect size for little hands, they come in their own natural, biodegradable packing and kids can get a bit of a sensory experience if you let them figure out how to peel them themselves.

Happy snacking and happy food play!
