Mom can we have a snack? Sound familiar? This year I’m planning on keeping things simple! So I’ll be posting more easy but healthy delicious meals !
Does it seem like it's always snack time and your running out of ideas on what to feed your kiddos? To lots of kids + teens, a snack is a bag of chips, some cookies or some other low-nutrient food. Instead, I always think of snacks as mini-meals 🙌🏻 .
Where do your kids snack?
When at home, we only snack at an “eating-only zone'' which is the dinning table or kitchen countertop. And yes this rule applies to company that comes over! I’m not a maid to clean up snacks all over the house. Also, I never let kids eat snacks while watching TV. Studies show that this mindless munching leads to overeating, which often results in unhealthy weight gain !
High sugar snacks may give them a blast of energy, but it won't last. Instead, children need three things in a healthy snack: protein, complex carbs, and fat .
But "healthy" doesn't have to mean "complicated." Here’s a crazy healthy snacks for super-busy mamas! I grabbed these @icelandicprovisions Skyr’s at my local @target and made these delicious bowls in minutes! With 30% less sugar than other leading flavored yogurts and 15-17 grams of protein and live cultures of probiotic! Mamas you can feel good about feeding your family !
Try some of these combinations:
Trail mix: nuts 🥜 dried fruit, 🥥 flakes, fresh or frozen fruit 🍎 🍒🍑🥝🍓 chia seeds, hemp seeds, oatmeal, sliced almonds, nuts, pure maple syrup, raw 🍯 raisins,chopped pistachios, sliced 🍌 the options are endless 🙌🏻 .
Hope this helps cause I know what a jam-packed day of work or running around looks like and then you suddenly realize everyone is starvation central! 😛 .
